THINK ABOUT THIS: Why Our Brains And Our Minds Aren’t One And The Same Thing

If the material universe is all there is, where do our non-material minds come from?

“If I asked you to close your eyes and think of an imaginary car and encouraged you to envision anything you could imagine related to that car, the resulting vehicle would exist solely in your mind.

Cold-Case expert J. Warner Wallace.

“If you are sufficiently creative, your imaginary vehicle would be like no other car on the planet, and only you would know precisely how it looks. Without referencing a physical car external to your body, you imagined the shape, color and textures of the vehicle; it exists only in your conscious thoughts.

“This particular car is not the result of optical input from your eyes. Your brain isn’t referencing optical data from an object in the room. Neurophysiologists cannot open your physical brain and locate the car, its shape or its properties.

“These characteristics cannot be accessed by surgeons sifting through the gray matter of your brain, and even though neurologists may be able to pinpoint a location within the brain where neurological activity correlates with a thought or sensation, this only confirms a casual relationship between two separate things and fails to identify one as the other.

“While physical states can be publicly known, mental states are only privately known. This characteristic of the mind is not shared with the brain; the properties of the brain and the mind are not identical.”

From J. Warner Wallace, “God’s Crime Scene: A cold-case detective examines the evidence for a divinely created universe,” page 125.

  2. If you read the Bible carefully, it’s pretty clear that we are spirits, and spirits live in/are the atmosphere (Ruach in Hebrew), and are only in our bodies temporarily and even then partially. Our body is not us and our consciousness is not in our brains. Spirits are oxygen atoms, that is why “life is in the blood”. When people die, they lose several ounces, this is their spirit/oxygen atoms leaving their body, permanently. This is why people report “out of body experiences”. We don’t need to fear death, because our memories have always been stored in the spirits/great cloud of witnesses all around us. Read my Facebook posts for further understanding. Our consciousness is software that runs in and on the hardware that is our body now, and will run on our resurrected and perfected body in the age to come.
