well i guess it would be nice if there was a nice afterlife, and i guess it would be bad if there was a bad afterlife.

The only desire i have at all regarding truth is that i want my beliefs to be as close to truth as possible.
Afterlife seems quite probable and its absence seems improbable, logically speaking. Energy doesn't disappear - the energy which leaves this body upon its death goes somewh

Consciousness and energy are different things.
Okay - where is consciousness seated in the body - what part of the brain will I find it in if I dig with a spoon?

You can parse all ya want, but when that "consciousness" (energy, spirit, soul) leaves the body, it's meat. What leaves it - choose a name that warms your cockles - IS NOT MEAT.

consciousness is an emergent property. This is like asking what part of a piano a chopin nocturne is stored.

Im sure you dont recall any memories before your birth. Thats because your consciousness did not exist yet. I dont see why it seems to be difficult for you to imagine a state that you have already basically 'experienced'.
Well, now - that's a load of crap from facts not in evidence.

You have no more knowledge of the pre-life than you do of the after-life, yet you live in a sad pretense that you do.

My only thesis is that I am more than meat - and that when the energy we call "life" leaves my body, energy does not - as you impute - simply cease to exist.

I fully support the pragmatic notion that some humans probably require religion for them to act civilized. I have no issue with that.
I espoused no religious view.

When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail, kid.

Good luck with your simple formula for "winning" - next time. It failed you this time, meat boi.

Who is requiring religion?
He is. It's what his arguments, provided by others more clever than himself, are geared to address.

When someone confutes his talking points WITHOUT advancing any religious view, he becomes like an adolescent making his first reach for boob - a tad awkward, a tad unschooled.

He made a real mess of trying to confront me as if i were making an alter call for Jesus, or trying to convert him to Islam. Poor kid - the cool kids don't prepare ya for a man with a cannon.

You ever read 1984 by george orwell? I guess its a closed mind that will not accept that 2+2 = 5.
It's a long way from insisting that math always works, to making affirmative statements to the negative about an unknown which you cannot prove.

You speak from pure, unadulterated faith, son - about both any potential after-life and any potential pre-life. The objective truth is that you do not know and you cannot know. But the feces from your mouth is that you DO know and CAN know.

You compare that drool to 2+2 is not equal to 5?

Kid, you are one HELL of a lot closer to 2+2=5 than is the person to whom you condescended with that puerile can of ready claptrap.

You in college? Second year? Don't let Ayn Rand fuck with your head, kid - someone is gonna turn you on to her soon. She was a desperate, man hungry lipstick whore - don't let the tortured intellectual act fool you.

the 'nail' here is that you are apparently unable to really grasp the concept of an emergent property.
No, son, the nail is that you answered a religious objection, even though I didn't make one - revealing an acute case of short man syndrome. You have some grudge against religious types, clearly - and you have constituted yourself as a fight about religion, looking for a place to happen.

I'm not that place, kid. I give two shits what your faith is. You are welcome to cling to the cross of atheism, and Nothing bless you.

Gonna stop ya there, kid.

You have insisted that you have specific knowledge of our pre-birth condition.

You have insisted that you have specific knowledge of our after-death condition.

You have presented zero evidence, asserting each of these as articles of faith.

You are in no position to call anyone a superstitious savage - though I'm sure you have plenty of lurid fantasies about "savages."

The dick, son. You're gonna wanna get off that dick.

Just let it go. One last la la la up the shaft and over with - walk away.

Yes. When exposed, he merely laughs and keeps on sucking. He is a flyover poster whom no one reads.

No one looks at your tiffs with him. We take for granted that you are destroying him, and getting a retard's gratitude for your troubles.

If you want to be nice to retards, volunteer for the special olympics. It's a real fart fest.
