Yeah, I’ll take a swing.
When you put in your mind the concept of “biological abilities”, and then you apply this concept as a viable explanation as to what is not only the “seat” of human thought (i.e., the brain) but also the power behind human thought, you are not being “rational” and “profound”, but “subjective” and “superficial”.
For reality is more than what your senses tell you it is. In your thinking you cling to your senses like a baby clings to his mother’s teat, then you spew out one “opinion” after the next that is leading you and those who hear you further and further away from what reality actually is.
Look at a coin. Try to see both sides at the same time. You can’t, because your eyesight is limited. Even if you get out a mirror, you will only see one side as it is and the other as a reflection.
So it is with reality. Our senses show us the physical world alone. We must use a mirror of sorts to see the other side of reality that is hidden from us unnecessary and limited beings. This other side of reality we refer to as the spiritual world.
Reality becomes supported and explained when both its sides are attended to.
The atheist/materialist is a simpleton of sorts, loudly proclaiming the world of the senses as the only world there is. (I believe Bruce calls them, very appropriately, “flatlanders”.)
The claim by these simpletons, and you, that the billions and billions of people, century after century, who view reality as two-sided are “arrogant, misinformed, and unintelligent” is what is “horseshit”.
The data (such as, the quality of the human mind) and human history (such as, the vast attendance to spritual matters) is on the side of a two-sided reality.
Modern thinkers look for smoking guns (such as, Arctic meteorites, manipulated life, and scientific theories) for an irrefutable proof that the physical world is all there was, so therefore is all there is.
But, not surprisingly (to me and many others), no such smoking gun has been found.
Atheist/materialists ignore these failings and rush headlong with agenda-driven zeal, leaving in their wake an insignificant body of work that will end up as mere footnotes of human thought in the omnibus of intelligent philosophical and scientific inquiry.
Futile attempt on my part, so I’ll keep it short:
The same way the bicep flexes, the brain thinks. Claiming this, or any of the sound evidence thereof, as subjective is wrong (although very common.) I’m always perplexed when people try to argue their opinion regarding cognition as if it is something intangible, therefore indiscernible (or triggered by something greater). It is very much measurable with the right understanding. When understood and applied, we have an irrefutable understanding of what is reality and what isn’t. The supernatural and god is neither reality nor a part of any alternative reality. They are, in fact, a product of our cognitions being applied in an extraordinary, but fictional manner. You, BM, either do not possess or are unwilling to apply this scientific knowledge. I’m going with the former. And teaching you would be pointless because I neither think you’re smart enough to understand nor deserving enough of that type of effort, mainly because as I would inevitably peel away layers to unveil the truth, you would just rebut with “well what about behind this door?” And when you’ve run out of doors, you’d decide to purposely misunderstand me. Thus, kiss my ass.
