Your experience in no way proves "that consciousness is not confined to the emergent properties of an individual neurological system", but even if it did, of what value is this sort of precognition? It didn't help you or your wife avoid the problem, or to respond to it more quickly. Did it comfort your wife to know that you had had a dream where "something" happened to her stomach? Did it help the doctors? Would you have known how to correctly interpret the dream if it happened a day earlier, before you wife had any stomach problems? In what way would the situation have been any different if you had not had the dream?

Next time, post something in advance so we can date/time stamp it, and let us see the precognition at work. If you really can do it, apply to the JREF for the million dollar prize. It's there for the taking.

Chill out guys. Egor's no blushing maiden. He's dished plenty in his time. He's fully capable of taking flak and returning with interest.

He is misinformed. Science is not a belief, you do not need to have faith in science for it to be true, because it is based on research, evidence and logic. The goal of science isn't to give meaning to our lives, as Egor likes to portray it, but to explain our universe with the help of research. Also, Atheism is as much of as religion as, to quote Seth, "not smoking may be called a habit or not collecting stamps a hobby".

Unless you agree with his assertions, there is no way you can claim that he is neither wrong nor misinformed.

In comparison to your own maybe.

I dont think anything deserves mockery.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

So shutting someone up is preferable? Giving someone the extra push to close their minds, to lock themselves up? I remember a time like that. It was called The Dark Ages.
I am not advocating shutting someone up; mockery is a rhetorical tool as are irony and sarcasm.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Then your rhetorical toolkit is lacking.

The contempt associated with those three tools facilitates it.

Need I remind you of your avatar.

Now I was trying to illustrate visually how I internally see egor. Which is to say, bordering on the insane.
