I'll make it easy for you . What immutable laws of physics support the notions that dead matter comes to life,
Quantum mechanics.or nothing produces something?
Yes, there is. Perhaps an analogy can be made. Do you believe in the existence of axions? Unless you have studied physics, you probably have no belief one way or the other. This is a lack of belief in axions. Even if you have studied physics, you may find the evidence inconclusive and still have a lack of belief in them. Or, it is possible that you have studied the evidence and that evidence has lead you to think that they really do not exist. That is an active disbelief in axions. Finally, you may consider the evidence to be such that you think their existence has been established, in which case you believe in axions.Word games. There is no difference between a lack of belief in diety and a disbelief in diety.
Similarly, it is possible to think that the question of the existence of deities is not specific enough to be answered at all. It is possible that you find the issue irrelevant and so have neither a belief nor a disbelief in deities. It is possible that you have looked at the evidence and find it inconclusive and so lack a belief in deities. That is different than having looked at the evidence and coming to the conclusion that no deity exists.
lack of belief is very different than a disbelief.
Evidence is required to show existence, not non-existence. The default position in the total absence of evidence is lack of belief.And yet you are willing to believe that God does not exist without ANY evidence to support your contention.
I believe my life has a purpose: to live, to love, to learn, to help. But this is a purpose *I* give to my life. I don't believe that life has a 'cosmic purpose'.If you believed life has purpose, you wouldn't ask that question. A better project would be to examine the reasons why you think life has no purpose.
Not at all. it is a very interesting psychological event. it is interesting to figure out what is happening in the brain that makes such experiences happen. Certainly oxygen deprivation is a key aspect, but the build up of ketones is also probably relevant. You can mimic OOBE by a variety of techniques, from drugs to electrical stimulation, to 'fooling' the brain into thinking it is somewhere other than where it is.It suggests that OBEs cannot be studied using the scientific method. BTW - there is nothing supernatural about consciousness. German physicist, Max Planck, one of the founding fathers of Quantum Theory gives us a glimpse, "All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particles of an atom to vibration which holds the atom together. We must assume behind this force is the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.
It says that when you tell an individual what's written on the paper you hide from them, they are bound to know. LOL! You crack me up! But seriously, the out-of-body experience is a phenomenon that has been known since ancient times. You would think science would take an interest in it but alas, it doesn't fit science's version of reality, so it is conveniently ignored.
Like I said: an interesting phenomenon that tells us about how the brain and consciousness work, but certainly not a demonstration of a 'non-physical reality'.
