Yes, I'm sure that when irrational ideas must be held for emotional needs, it helps to get together with other deluded people and recite little mantras like this to distract yourselves from the reality that no gods exist.
I hate to be the one to break it to you, but that's rather a large and unreasonable claim.
I understand you have some solid ideas regarding the (im)possibilities of a creator-God (I may have grabbed the wrong end of the stick, but the gist appears to be that since "God" must have made a decision to create, then the logic gates which allowed that decision to be taken must have pre-existed in order for them to be a part of "God's" mechanical makeup, proving that He is not the first cause and erego not "God". Have I mis-understood?) however these ideas do not quite account for the (im)possibility of emergent consciousness, or, more particularly, emergent-consciousness-as-god that some philosophers (like Ward and Hegel) postulate.
To be sure, I can't say with any confidence that you are wrong, but I do think that you are overconfident in your claims of having detected a universal falsehood.
You are quite correct; however you will find that the claim I make is not of the form that emergent consciousness is a fact, it is of the form that Pcunix's declaration of ultimate certainty is premature and unjustified.
For the purpose of clarity, here it is again;
The response (to date) had been somewhat blasé dismissal. Since we both believe the burden of evidence lies with the claimant, and I assume you would concur that this rather grand statement ("the reality that no Gods exist") has not been adequately justified, then I'm sure you are as eager for an answer as I am.
I am perplexed as to the nature of the claim that unconsciousness proves the non-exstence of emergent consciousness. It is, perhaps, a claim that needs expanded on before it can be viewed as a serious contribution.
Can you put all the religious, theology, atheist, etc.. stuff on a separate site, give it their own tab/page or something so the rest of us don't have to be hit in the face with it every time we come to hubpages.
Its just like the topic says. I'm kind of a rookie in this whole Hub thing. So far, I like the Religion forum, but there's a lot of people you just wanna smack in the head. If you're non-religious, then what in the hell...
This is another religious topic, but unlike most that are posted. The basis of this thread is to gather the thoughts of atheists, evolutions or scientologists and christians can even chime in. Most evolutionists believe...
Is it possible to truly be religious as well as believe in the evidence of science with theories such as evolution, the Big Bang and dinosaurs existing prior to man not along side? (Please keep it clean and civil guys,...
