True, you won't find consciousness in the atoms of a brain.



Then again, you won't find internal combustion disassembling an engine, either.

Bravo!

You might find infernal combustion disassembling a brain, though.






Too cerebral?

Unlikely. Doesn't fit with any current models.

What he said. There are plenty of online lectures that discuss this and are available to anyone who can type in a forum.

Wow , thanks guys for shutting me down as quick as possible after i'd not been on for about 2years , I was just trying to get the ball rolling & isn't this " Ask a scientist " section & how is a quantum particle that dissappears then reappears not sciency , & just because it doesn't fit with current models are you going to just brush it off many famous & important discoveries have been made off book or ( doesn't fit current models ) , if we can observe it here why cant they observe it there asking the same question .

The forum is "ask a scientist" but this thread is "Isn't a god theoretically forced (quantum physics)?". You are off on a derail. Start a new thread after some preliminary searches.

Burden of proof is the obligation on somebody presenting a claim to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing "side" to show the evidence presented is not adequate. If claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.

History isn't written by the victors. It's written by the people with the time machines.
