there is no way to prove that brain = mind because there is no way across the epistemological gap. you can't get outside your own perceptions and check them. When they try to make that kind of augment they start using bait and switch. The substitute brain function for conscoiusness.
That's highly ideological potion anyway. The whole naturalistic world view depends upon that bait and switch. you are ideologically compelled to deny the basis of reality as mind.
asking an atheist to think fairly about that is like asking a John Bircher to think fairly about the Communist Manifesto.

O yea that's the way ideological propaganda works. when it's there stuff thinking about it and paralyzing it is real improvident. criticizing it is that's skepticism is about. it's all good to do that as long as it's agaisnt Christianity.
when it's against atheism then it's unscientific and it's wrong.
free thinking means slave thinking. when it's against them it's fine when it's against us then it makes you a lunatic and new age wirdo and it's unscientific.
