"Leibniz once postulated that everything the brain does might be emulated with gears and pulleys and other mechanical stuff.  And then he asked if you could wander about in such a machine would you ever see a mind or consciousness."

"Nothing special about "bioelectric" though. All chemistry involves rearrangements of electrons. Still just chemistry. It takes as much "bioelectric processes) to digest food as to think. Maybe more."

"Well, ... I guess you could be since atheism only refers to lack of belief in god(s).  Someone who had no belief in god(s) could still believe in other supernatural stuff and I have met atheists who do believe in other kinds of…"

Christmas on Wikipedia

I just looked at the entry for Christmas on wikipedia.  I don't remember it being so thoroughly sectarian as it is now, asserting flatly that the holiday is a commemoration of the birth of Jesus.  There is no mention of Mithra at all.  And, over on the Mithra entry there is no mention of December 25th being Mithra's birthday.What's next?  Will it be asserted flatly that "goodbye" means "God Be With You" with the implication that anyone who says it is at least a theist if not Christian?See More
