Basically, I don’t believe in a god because I don’t believe that there is an essence of some kind that created everything else. I believe in science and chemical reactions and all that jazz. Logically, there is no room for a god.
But in my philosophy class we’ve been talking about the mind and how its this immaterial, non-physical thing that we may or may not have some control over. I’m not sure what to think about that.
If I agree and say that the mind is non-physical, and it obviously does all of our thinking, than couldn’t there be other non-physical items that also think?
If I disagree and say that the mind has an actual location in our brain, than science should be able to point to the part of our brain that holds all of the concepts and beliefs we have, but as far as I know that location has not been found.
Trippy man, trippy.
