Yeah right, just electrochemical interactions! The answer still does not define sentience, ie your own ability to think and reason.
Actually it does. Without those reactions you would not be thinking or reasoning.

.

Wait a sec - have we just discovered a scientific hypothesis that explains creationists?

wrong, there is no physical evidence...because the soul in not physical in nature, the same as god.
you ask for physical evidence of the non physical, and claims that the non physical does not exist, because there is physical evidence.
God and spirit and soul do indeed exist.
So you're saying you have no evidence but they definitely exist?

Mars annoucement raises questions

Science has reached a point where they are beginning to admit they don't even know what life is.

Yet many puddle gooists have no doubt how it started and no doubt how it didn't start.

Old news. The definition of life has always been a tricky one to define. Kinda like "planet". But fundies claim to know. But like everything else they claim (which is a lot) they can't actually show any knowledge of the subjects they speak of.

Another straw-man KO! Tell us Bo, is it honest to constantly beat up caricatures of your opponent's position or dishonest?

It's "she" and might I add that being offensive doesn't make you appear intelligent, just arrogant and full of hate for your fellow man based on their beliefs (which they are entitled to):)
Also, I'm an ER physician. If it pleases you we can switch the subject to that of hemodynamics, cardiogenic shock, STEMI's vs nonSTEMI's etc or would you like to copy and paste a Wikipedia link on all that info as well? Seems to me you are quite fond of the copy and paste phenomenon trying to appear more intelligent than you actually are.
Really? what have i copied and pasted lately?

wow ! way to start out with a balls out lie! i hope you are never working on me in an ER.(not that I believe you) no good Dr. would be so stupid to bust out a lie like that that could be so easily checked out...

perhaps you like to play doctor. is that what you meant?

You are wildly paranoid.
If you stop to think about the number of forums, and the number of threads within those forums and the rate to which new posts are added to threads, in order for Topix to censor forums they would need to employ MILLIONS of people worldwide just to keep up.
OR, they could have an automated censor that deletes repeat posts and checks on posts that have been flagged as offensive. Then they would need to employ ~50 people.
Since NONE of us pay to be here, which model do you think they use?
If they just responded to complaints, every post would be deleted by the other faction. The political loyalists would make a practice of censoring the other side.

When posts get deleted which have no links, no swear words and no personal attacks, I say otherwise. No paranoia. Just manipulation of the masses or very bad programming. Either way, I can't think of a better way to get their attention. After all, content is what drives this site.

I already suspect that they have artificial accounts whose only purpose is to generate hit count. If people want to talk to puppets, that's their choice. If other people want to silence the puppets and return the dialog to realistic conversation, well, it may take weasel methods to extract the weasels, so don't worry about it.

Really? I'm a physician. I'm sure I remember taking a science class or two. Lol. Just because I believe differently from you doesn't make me a fool. Why such hostility towards those who have faith and choose to believe as they see fit?
We know you're lying. Want to know how we know you're lying? A physician never stops going to school, they have to, they have to keep going to school their entire career or they lose their license.

So yes, you're lying.

Verifiable evidence does not have to be physical, it just has to produce the same results for everyone that tests it.
