I didn't make the rules. If you don't like it, file a grievance with God.

Well...since I'm not an evolutionist, it definitely doesn't matter to me. If I believed my existence was only possible because of evolution...well, it would matter to me then. but that's just me.

The end will be when we humans finally make ourselves extinct over this question.

Trying to prove or disprove a god is killing our species, all by its own hand.

The members of the entire homosapien species are in a downward spiral of hating each other over what is basically ancient bullsh!t gossip.

We're fighting each other to death.

Over bullsh!t.

THINK about this!

Humans fighting each other to self-extinction...

over...

Straight.

BULLSH!T.

How abSURD!

WTF is wrong with us?

We think we're soooo intelligent...but most "adults" in this world don't seem to have graduated from middle school emotionally. Look at the way we fight over stupid sh!t.

It's time to move on to something new before we wipe out our own future.

Over bullsh!t!

<quoted text>I understand the point you are trying to make, and I do not agree with it. I have tried to explain my position with the gravity analogy I kept referring to, which prompted you to say "well, we really can't say mass has anything to do with gravity since we don't know it's mechanism."
That's lunacy. Gravity exists where there is mass.
You obviously do not understand the point. You have to be intentionally misrepresenting what I write; no one can misunderstand it that many times.

What I said was that mass is associated with gravity just as molecules are associated with consciousness, so obviously mass does have something to do with gravity. You're an @$$, you can quit the game now.

We have no idea what that association is, dipsh*t.

So are you going to acknowledge the obvious truth that science cannot make a statement as to whether a molecular mechanism to consciousness is more likely than a quantum mechanism, or freekin what? Gonna keep ignoring that? That's the whole argument right there, and you never address it. WTF? Cmon, you wanted to knock it off too, so just admit that and we can be done.

I agree with Shermer.
He describes a rational skeptic as "one who questions the validity of particular claims of knowledge by employing or calling for statements of fact to prove or disprove claims, as a tool for understanding causality."
I don't see atheists as rational skeptics, even though they do.
That's right, you don't see.

Thought exists where there is brain. It might be wrong to assume they have anything to do with each other, but it certainly seems they are related. That is "what we have."
That's "what we have" but that has nothing to do with even the first detail to a mechanism.
As soon as you can show *how* molecules can cause themselves to become aware of themselves, let me know.
I suppose it's because the parts of the brain required for our sense of being are less active while sleeping. If consciousness were ethereal, why would it "shut off" during sleep, and why would it return in sporadic, sometimes inexplicable forms during dreams?
I explained this but you didn't bother reading it and if you did, you surely didn't understand it. If consciousness were ethereal then it would never "shut off". Misrepresenting or misunderstanding me?

Your senses turn off; your memory turns off (unless you are dreaming) but how do you know that your 'sense of being' turns off? Just because you have no memory of "being" doesn't mean you "weren't".

Your definition of consciousness seems to be, simply, the senses. But you don't know if our 'sense of being'/'awareness' carries on after falling "asleep", with the brain's recording device is turned off. Like I said, the 'sense of being', if it is separate from the other five senses, is likely something that cannot produce a memory because it is not associated with any "event". And if something cannot produce a memory then how can it be remembered? Therefore we have the illusion that we were unaware of our own sense of being for a time that we sleep.

I don't think you like to contemplate these issues before forming beliefs, or else you would at least understand me even if you don't agree with me in your belief.

Ever wonder why our sense of being never seems to grow old like the rest of our body and brain? Not that that proves anything. A little humility goes a long way.

Only in their mind...
Logic is not something that exists "only in the mind." Minds need to exist to recognize logic, but there are just certain things that are logically impossible given how the universe works. For example, there can be no such thing as a merciful, loving, good god of vengeance and spite who damns his creations to eternal torment. There can be no such thing as free will in a universe governed by an omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient deity. Etc. Etc.

I know that your response will be something to the effect of: "well, you don't understand god so you can't reconcile those things like a good christian;" we both know this is a cop out and that is does nothing to address the problem, but that won't stop you from saying it.
