It is not unreasonable to have to know something about how consciousness can come from unconsciousness in order to assume something about what causes consciousness. We have nothing.<quoted text>Notice I said "maybe." I don't know if you are intentionally vague or intentionally absurd.
And no, I never said we should "skip that part." I only said that it is unreasonable to demand that I show how consciousness can come from unconsciousness to even suggest that the brain makes thought. As of now, in the absence of any sort evidence for "quantum woo," eternal consciousness, or an afterlife, the only option we have is that consciousness came from unconsciousness.
There is no evidence that unconscious molecules can ever become aware of themselves so what I'm saying is your belief and mine are on level ground. Your belief is not more probable than mine.
You can be convinced that yours is more probable but science cannot back you up. That's the whole point here. But of course you refuse to admit that obvious truth.
