Faerie tale? Do you have anything original to say on the matter? I bet that makes you feel powerful doesn't it. I know it does. I was once like you,
oh so angry at those irrational illogical theists who couldn't understand that I WAS RIGHT and THEY WERE WRONG ZOMG@!BBQ. Then i actually grew up and
ditched the Us Vs. Them mentality and realized we have much more to gain intellectually by banding together to better understand eachothers
perceptions of our world, and thus growing closer to the truth.
So what if it is modeling a cats brain? How does that discount the existence of the soul or free will? All it is doing is modeling the physical
interaction of information. Information itself is not tangible in the same sense that an atom of plutonium or a graphene molecule is. even the data
on your hard disk right now is represented by magnetizing ferromagnetic material directionally. Does that mean that the data does not exist? That it
is simply Magnetized materials and nothing more? No, it does not.
