Can causality be scientifically proven to exist? Does causality actually exist within the universe or only within the human mind?

Maybe you could define casuality as the use of probabilities, ill explain, consider a person that walks under a ladder every day during most of his life, do you think if one of the time the ladder just falls down on him was a casuality or just that mother probabilies ran a cycle???

Perhaps if you defined 'existential causality' we'd have something to go on. Right now, this question is too broad. There are too many possible definitions we can use here.

Does casuality exist independently in the universe? Like any other object or thing?

Man, this thread is old.

you mean everything has a cause?

Are you speaking of Hume's critique of causality? Perhaps our conception of causality would be better expressed as "whenever A occurs, B occurs also" instead of "A causes B." Perhaps causality is merely part of a mental structure that seeks to make sense of the world around it, but is itself undemonstrable through reason alone. And so on.

That's all very nice, but does it matter? Can we see the world without that sense of causality and maintain sanity, order, and usefulness? I don't think so. I'm content with my potentially false belief that one thing can cause another, if only because it seems likely through its repetition in my experience.

It certainly helps when correlation isn't equal to causation.

Even Hume admits that it's a completely impractical way to live. Even forget your general references: how would you be able to do anything if you thought it wouldn't produce some repeatable result?

scientificly speaking, you cant prove causality. Just as you cant scientificly prove you exists.

philosophicaly speaking there are many possibilities.

But just because something cant be proven by your theology doesnt mean it cant exists.peace over war
