If it cannot be supported by evidence it is not knowledge. Faith gives you delusion, not knowledge.

Faith is willingly accepting buillshit, and knowingly giving up reason.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

If something can not be confirmed or denied does that make it deniable realistically?
Can you prove that the mind is only the sum of it's physical parts?

You don't understand what knowledge is. And your statement is a non sequitur.

This has exactly what to do with the discussion? Consider

Until some evidence of something else is shown, the working hypothesis is that the mind is brain-based.

That's not the way it works. Why do you woo peddlers not get this?

If you make an assertion, you need to provide evidence to support it.

Unless and until you do so, your assertion remains in the "probably bullshit" category.


N.B. In the future you need to attribute your sources. Your first post was a straight cut-and-paste from Disclose.tv. That is very dishonest.

I don't even know what disclosetv is. More assumption to go with your near sightedness, aye.

Seriously, do you not understand the need for evidence? Facepalm
