Peixe mutante encontrado no dia 31 de março no rio Preto - entre os municípios de Rio Negrinho e Mafra-SC deixou perplexos pescadores. Segundo o pescador e professor Josef W., essa mutação deve-se aos agrotóxicos. O peixe foi enviado para exame ictiopatológico em São Paulo. Fonte: Jornal A Opinião, 12 de abril 2013

<quoted text>What does an inert hippocampus have to do with the possibility that the sense of being can always exist? If molecules are aware of themselves then why would they turn off? How can they turn it off? That's why I'm saying it is only our memory (recording device) that gets turned off.
You are assuming that our sense of being is part of our sensory faculties. Like, how can you assume that our sense of being only appears in spurts? You would have to know that our sense of being is no longer present when we 'sleep without dreaming', and you admitted you can't know that.
A dream is an 'event'. Therefore a memory of it is formed. The sense of being may not be an 'event' and therefore does not create a memory and therefore we may have it while we sleep without dreaming. Your hippocampus BS doesn't make any sense.
You're missing the point. If a man without a hippocampus has a sense of being even in the absence of the ability to form long term memories, then I see no reason why we shouldn't have a sense of being while sleeping (if being is eternal), especially considering we *do* have the ability to form long term memories. What I'm saying is: not having a hippocampus clearly does not "shut off" our sense of being, so your claim that we simply "can't remember" our sense of being is fallacious, since we do have the ability to record memories during sleep. There's no reason why we shouldn't remember our nights and be lucid in every dream, unless we are in fact unconscious. Stop it with that "event" crap. Why should our sense of being only be active when an "event" happens? And if this is true, and a dream is an "event," then why is our sense of being so garbled and sometimes not even present during dreams?

Responding to this again, since I "dodged" it.

What you said has absolutely nothing to do with my assertion that homosexuality is not the opposite of god. I posted a bit from a comic lampooning people like you who complain about "explaining gay people to their kids." You then tried to switch it around, basically claiming that I would have a problem explaining god to my kids. I don't know how it went from explaining things to children, to you complaining about all the ways in which you are "persecuted."

What is called folk philosophy? Sexual desires and beliefs are not the same thing.

And just because you have been culturally conditioned to believe that an emotional response you had to stimuli was Big Baby Jeebis does not make that nonsense real.

You're not with the times, man. THIS is an example of forcing it to my kids:
"Gay History Now Required, by Law, to Be Taught in California Social-Studies Textbooks"
http://blogs.laweekly.com/informer/2011/07/ga...
Really? So when your child reads about the civil rights movement in their textbooks, "blackness" is being forced on them? Are we to pretend that gay people did not, and do not have to fight for their rights? Just ignore it?

Are the textbooks gonna say "you should totally be gay, man. Just go with it." ? Are you really that insecure about the sexuality of your children that you think reading about gay people might turn them gay? Would it matter if they turned out to be gay? If they did turn out to be gay, would it be the gays fault? Does it concern you that, gasp, they might learn to accept gay people as fellow human beings and learn that they should be extended the same rights as everyone else?

<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.
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.

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.

He gets to wash the feet of Jesus right next to you, for eternity, while your 'soul body' has to wonder in fear of a relapse, a fall, a free will dose, you know, just like Biblesatan.
Biblesatan wasn't compelled by the story, even with first hand knowledge. Even Biblesatan knew Biblegod as an immoral, amoral fool.
As for the rest of this foolish gabber, looks like you are clueless about Salvation/God's Grace....

No,*you* are not making any sense, or *you* are not understanding *me*. You state that in the absence of a hippocampus we still have a sense of being. That supports my belief. What does that have to do with memory? If a person without a hippocampus 'sleeps without dreaming' they too will have no memory of "being". If a person with a hippocampus 'sleeps without dreaming' they will have no memory of "being" either. So how does this help you?

Even if a person with a functioning hippocampus is awake they still can't remember their sense of being because as I've explained, it is not an event, and for another reason that I'll explain.

Take a moment, try to close out your senses. No tasting, no feeling (except for your @$$ against the chair, but that is a "given" so we will have to ignore that; pretend you are in a dark zero-g chamber), no sight, no sound, no smell. OK, the one thing you cannot close out is your sense of being. You sense that you are "there" or "alive".

You are familiar with that sense of being but it doesn't form a memory because it is not an event. You know you were awake a minute ago but you can't remember your exact specific 'sense of being' from a minute ago because, just as electrons behave the same under the same conditions, the sense of being is exactly the same no matter in what instant of time you are sensing your being.

Get it? The sense of being never changes. You may feel old but your sense of being never ages, your sense of being still feels like it always did.

Your recording device is on when awake but you still can't remember your sense of being because it is always exactly the same.

IMO, the sense of being is unaltered even if someone drops an anvil on their toe. Sure you are in intense pain and you probably cannot concentrate on your sense of being. But if you could block out the pain (and I'm sure there are people (monks?) that can), then you would still feel your sense of being. I myself am in pain most of the time and sometimes it can get intense. but I have gotten good at blocking it out. Matter fact sometimes the more pain I'm in the more I can separate my sense of being from my "body". Another way of saying that is that I can separate myself from my body.
