Ya, because "pretty much" knowledge is good enough, right?

And you can still own weapons?
I can't.
It was road rage. Some dude spun out in front of me on the 91 fwy, the parking lot. He threw up some rocks and one of them hit & broke my windshield. I snapped. I got in front of him and blocked him, got out and smashed his windshield with The Club.

The pigs met me at my house a few hours later and arrested me on assault with a deadly weapon.

In court, I argued that a car is not alive and therefore The Club was never "deadly".

The judge agreed and dropped the case, so long as I bought the sumbitch a new windshield.

I figured that was better than one more night with the losers in an Orange County jail.

MOM: I love you, Milorad.
MILORAD: I don't believe your outlandish claims, mom.
LOL Riverside, I can see I'm only going to get an ulcer dealing with you because being content with your own lack of clues leaves you LOTS of free time while the rest of us have to actually maintain our smarts by honing them elsewhere before coming here and blunting them against your dull surface.

I have MUCH more evidence that my mother loves me than simply having to take her word for it. No surprise that your analogy is as stupid as the person making it.

Bullshit. YOU made the claim that "RR probably thinks he's awesome".
That's not what I said.

Also, there seems to be plenty of evidence of that, so I could easily have made that claim and have the evidence to back it up.

There's that good ole atheist rebuttal....
"Since we all know the Easter Bunny isn't real, God must not be real either."
No no... Since the evidence of both god and the easter bunny are precisely the same (ie: none) both claims should be treated as equally meritorious.

I've taken you at your request literally and will gladly teach you as much as you want. Learn it.

They are all stacked up in cities.
And what figures did you use.
I found 57,500,000 square miles of land area on the whole planet.
Texas only has 268,000 square miles. That works out to .000038 square miles per person.
For Texas, that gives it's residents a tenth of a square mile per person.

That's about 6-1/2 acres PER person.

That's enough land to grow a few potatoes...

<quoted text>RR wouldn't be able to legally own guns if he lived in Florida- a MAJOR no-no and zero tolerance here in Florida for convicted felons to legally own guns.
Then again, I take much of what RR says with a HUGE grain of salt- such as his claims that he is a good Christian and a good American; I see no more evidence of those claims of his than I do of the god RR claims he KNOWS exists and which he KNOWS is real.
There you go ASSuming again....

RR isn't a convicted felon. If that were the case, I couldn't have guns in Cali, either.

Dumb ass.

<quoted text>Which is exactly what I just said. And I don't know exactly what it is. You're asking a question that doesn't really have an answer at this point. That doesn't mean that it's reasonable to wildly speculate on the nature of consciousness. I mean, it *could be* that there are little pixies inside my head turning gears and levels, but should we really take that query seriously?
My point is this; speculating that consciousness is a molecular phenomenon is just as "wildly speculating" as considering a quantum mechanism for it. So if I can't speculate that it is quantum then you can't speculate it is molecular. That isn't hard to understand, is it?

Ever since I started here years ago, "you guys" have insisted that consciousness is clearly emergent of matter (on the molecular level). According to your terms, that would be considered as wild speculation.

Ah well..... It's enough for me to know that if stupidity was a criminal offense you would be serving several concurrent life sentences with absolutely no chance of parole.... That stupidity such as you display is not against the law makes it no less criminal.

Religion in china doesn't seem all that big a deal either. Especially christianity:

You might be happy in china...

"The People's Republic of China was established 1 October 1949. Its government is officially atheist, having viewed religion as emblematic of feudalism and foreign colonialism ... a massive number of places of worship were destroyed."

No freedom.
No choice.

Nice.

It tells me exactly what I said Pokay, that it's rather like adding a unproven hypothetical element to something we cannot answer to begin with. But what you don't understand is that neuroscience is answering the questions without adding a new hypothetical element.
But like gravity we may never fully understand how our consciousness works.
So the link you posted tells us that science has admitted we cannot even study consciousness yet you go on and on alluding to us knowing something concrete about the mechanism of it.

What has it answered big guy? What? Give me something already; all you're giving me is "we have some answers". What answers do we have? What? Give me a piece of the mechanism oh wise one.
