So if you had all of the brain matter in the world at your disposal, and you are tasked to create a conscious brain from scratch...and you shape and mold the matter into a brain..where would you get the consciousness??

If you made a sufficiently complex brain you could.

I said thoughts aren't physical...meaning they can't be weighed, measured, colored, etc..and they can't.

They are quite physical. They are the patterns of connections and the ongoing electrochemical activity of the brain.

You said it, you didn't prove it. "Proving" something tends to take one further than just merely "saying" something. Don't know why. Life, I guess.

You asked for an explanation, not a proof. I explained it.

I expect him to call that nonsense in 3...2...1...

Refuses to play the "my sources are better than yours game".

What sources? You haven't been explaining or delivering sources for your claims or sources for what contexts make you believe the particular x things you believe about a scientific, mathematical, or even philosophical idea that you claim to base your ideas on. You haven't answered where you base your understandings of these specific fields from or what your base for understanding them is.

This is the kind of shit that makes me fall in love with mathematics all over again every time I think about it.

And poor deluded CotW thinks he understands infinity.

Apparently, he does this even when he admits that he doesn't understand your position. This is the flip side of faith. Rejecting an idea before understanding it or the evidence.

If he's not a child he's certainly childlike. Someone here coined Wail_of_the_Child. I'm stealing it. errrr ... I mean "liberating it".

Well the Bible says that lest ye be as a child, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

Well, when I am wrong, I will take the "admitting im wrong" for a test drive. Until then, no use.

That one long sentence was more than about four of your two sentenced posts.
