"As your brain dies neuron by neuron so does your mind and so there's no mind just brain."

The external reality is conditioned by the nervous system. This is how we perceive the external reality. This is perceptual reality. But, the external reality can exist independent of the nervous system.

The cosmos clearly manifests a self-organizing and an emergent mechanism which indicates that energy is conscious, otherwise we're forced to fall back on the ridiculous scientific paradox of insentient energy/matter producing sentience.

rabbee: so you are calling TheG-D of Only TheTorah a liar. with your being the liar, saying that. so that everything you say, must be false when compared to G-D. in a world of about 7 billion liars, considering themselves truer than G-D. i wonder from whom, they all got that from? cause it sure did not come from G-D, here in TheTorah.

Conscious energy forming the brain vibrates at a frequency that comes under the purview of quantum processes. Higher dimensions of conscious energy exceed quantum mechanics.

A religious fanatic - a prisoner of scripture!
Christians call themselves "prisoners". II Tim. 2:26 "And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will". Isaiah 14:17 also predicts this "...that opened not the house of his prisoners?" The Truth will set you free.

Moral values don't stem from religion but from the from the emergent properties of human consciousness under evolutionary urges. The greater the degree of consciousness manifested in a sentient system, the higher will be the emergent moral values that accompany it.

Funny how that works.
Yeah, those wacky Gods are a real hoot!

But seriously, it is like any good parent, the object is to make the kids able to stand on their own. Hence the rise in atheism, as humans outgrow the need for Divine handholding.

The morality that springs from religion is awful and is invariably conditional and based on the carrot and stick policy.
