Let me clarify , a mind cannot exist without a brain.
But you could try to say a brain can exist that does not have a mind, but then you are talking about a damaged brain.
I am yet to encounter a mind without a brain.
Jesus Christ of the Nazareth...

How can a mind not exist without the brain?

Where do you think the mind comes from?

The mind is a nonphysical entity that is incorporated into the brain as soon as a fetus is born. But where does the mind come from when the fetus is born? Just because you dont know where it comes from doesnt mean it never existed before it came into the brain. This is my philosophy on this matter, this matter which is metempsychosis, or the migration of the "soul"/Ego/mind into a new physical body.

This is why scientists need to incorporate some philosophy into their reasoning, because they see everything as black and white and too linear, thus rendering them ignorant.

As an educated and worldly man of the world, so very hip and in the know, and a faithful devotee of science and the "real" stuff, tell us how these "feelings" can be initiated by a "mind" created by and in parallel with a physical body bound by the laws of physics?
What physical forces can initiate those "feelings"? Drugs are not allowed as an answer. People have had these without them. If it is chemicals in the brain, what causes the emissions of them? Particularly if one is in an idle state physically and mentally?
Infinite regress as applied to emotions?

I must say, your slow descent into lunacy does make for some excellent entertainment.

What is your question? Are you asking me how emotions work?

Lmao you really are ignorant.
This is why it is a good idea to not speak on something you know nothing about.
Irminists, or "Pagans" as the Christians call him, didn't look at their gods the same way Christians did. They did not sit back and hope. They believed in action and saw their gods as metaphors and representations of themselves.

Stop moving the goalposts.
Seriously though - bad analogy. The object would not be to show someone what jealousy feels like, only that it exists. Proving it's existence would be quite easy. Exhibit A - car door. Exhibit B - millions of gashes in car door. We can infer feeling from behavior, we can infer feeling from self reports, etc. The existence of jealousy is not in question.
Oh? So the debts in the car door demonstrate jealousy?!

WTF?

Explain the feeling of jealousy to me. Go.

You are trying to say the mind is content, but there is no content without the brain. The two are inseparable , unless you have met some headless people who are great conversationalists , I have to disagree with you. Even If I think you are a sweet person
(when you're not angry). But you see things differently than us ...that's ok you're not (insert word here) because of it.
You need to read about Gilbert Ryle's "Ghost in the machine".

To think software doesnt exist until it is incorporated into hardware is ignorant.

Sure we think differently, but you are trying to come off as like you know everything, and are afraid to admit it because you dont want your ego shattered.

Neural brain tissue and it's network , are the first thing that starts forming in a fetus, or more correctly before it's even a fetus in the Zygote.

Oh, I watched Through the Wormhole last night, that episode we talked about. I thought it was pretty stupid. Full of empty conjecture and false ideas with nothing to back them up. I always LOL when I hear a "scientist" make a prediction about something, like that first lady did - the one with the blocks - that there will eventually be no Y chromosome ..... "in 500 million years".

Stupid.
Yeah.

Because you're so much smarter and have done so much research.

I know there's no god.

Here's where you tell me I'm a liar.

Methinks outright banning wil serve the opposite of what we want to achieve. During my time as a Christian (yes, even Dounle Fine was a death denying cultist at some stage), I learnt how certain religions thrive under banishment. The reason, IMHO, is martyrdom. People feel they are being made martyrs and uses that to strengthen the faith of their comrades.

What do I suggest? I think that religion is dying. The theology is definitely weakening. Three hundred years ago, if you and I denied the Genesis account, we would have either been fitted with cement tennis shoes and taken for a swim, or get the noose.

Today, much of that has changed. Christianity is incorporating all the more humanistic ideas. The other day, I read a piece by a church leader in a prominent church here, saying that he believes there are many ways to 'god'.

Now, it is still wrong, but their theology is being diluted and I believe in but a few generations, it may die off completely.

Perhaps in your being mesmerized by that book you are losing sight of just what it says.
So you have not read the Quran. You cannot comment on something you have not read dude.

To read a few poems, and then to infer that all are the same, is just laziness. It's fine to be lazy at times, but then you cannot comment on something you are too lazy to read.
