I am beginning to become conscious on consciousness.

Ordeal1000 says:

Care to update yourselves for the sake of being human. We took all the troubles by doing dangerous Experiments, not Mr Hawking. We have created Human out of Giant Ape Orangutans for Real. You can repeat our Process in your lab at any moment of time, you will still get Human outs of the Orangutan 100% confirmed. To Make Human exist in the Nature is done via Revolution not Evolution. It is Reversible as well. Then “Who” made us all Humans in the past ? Read the Experiment at godsurety . org

Ordeal1000 says:

Mr Richard Dawkins Rules NOTHING, They Rule , Visit Website, type godsurety . org directly on your browser, in flesh. Science has proven that “God” does exist, yes, the One who made decision to put everything in order so that we see it as it is, and we are meant to have a freewill to make any “Individual Selection”… Spread The News to all Your Friends.. get F.O.C Update of Science, Mr Dawkins is sooooooooooo out of date, backward, stupid, as Old saying: little knowledge is dangerous..

Marty BoneIdol says:

Welllll. Its all about love really. So why get so angry at those that don’t get it. If we all respect each others beliefs and continue to care about humanity (which is the central remit of most “religions”) then there is not really any need to be angry and fight.

learn to spell, you dont have the intellect to call this man a douche.

this guys a dooche

StephenRoddy says:

Couldn’t Science be considered a bonafied source? I mean if God Does exist that means he created Science, so in studying science you are studying Gods creation to further your understanding of what is.
And if he doesn’t exist you are still furthering your understanding of what is.

It’s a win win situation?

StephenRoddy says:

I think people are missing the point here. Whether he’s right or wrong isn’t what he is ultimately communicating here. It doesn’t really matter either.
The real issue us that this is a man who has dedicated his life’s work to bettering the world around him. Whether you agree or disagree with his theories doesn’t matter.
He sets a great example for how any person theist, religious, atheist, anyone should live their lives.

UninstallingWindows says:

religious nuts of course. those who where mentally molested as a child and cannot separate facts from fiction by themselves.

paul glenn-jones says:

To be honest I am just a struggling soul working on my own spiritual life.But when I hear this man it sometimes is just too much.

paul glenn-jones says:

I appologise if i insulted anyone it just frustrates me the way He poses as a man in knowledge and misleads so many innocent people Thats my imperfection all over I get mad at peolpe like Dawkins for misleading people.He doesnt know the first thing about REAL religion and he is on a crusade to destroy what little we have.

paul glenn-jones says:

There Are qualifications for leading people into higher awareness.And one is that you dont try to be Guru unless you have accepted a guru yourself.You shouldnt try to tell the truth to people as though you know it unless you yourself have heard the truth humbly from a bonafied source.

paul glenn-jones says:

Dawkins and his like are wolves in sheeps clothing they pose as spiritual and “good” but in fact they have their own agenda.They are not really interested in your well being.I appologise for the existentialism it always bums me how he appears to be trying to liberate people from their ignorance but he himself doesnt even respect your spiritual existence .WHO is he tring to liberate

paul glenn-jones says:

i also accept your right to tell me I,m crazy Dawkins believes we a re robots nothing more

paul glenn-jones says:

his idea is that if we are exposed to various information inputs then we have no choice but to follow that ” moral Zeitgeist”Like as i said a computer sort of if you hear the argument then you have to accept the new programme.I totally accept insight and freewill and that a person can choose whether or not he accepts something.And its my right to say that youre wrong its a free market place

paul glenn-jones says:

I am not trying to convert anyone just humbly pass on what was passed to me.Even if say for example I have a higher argument then yours i still accept your freewill to not accept that .I also accept the fact that a person can have insight from God yes this is true and I accept that the soul is a sentient being.Dawkins let me assure you does not believe in freewill.

paul glenn-jones says:

Not following ” religion” blindly is one thing as I said if Dawkins knew what religion really was then his intelligence may be of some help.He is a matter only theorist who believes your awareness of your own existence is caused by some random firing of neurons in the brain.Free will is a contradiction to his philosophy as to have freewill there mus be a person in the body who has a will let alone freewill

paul glenn-jones says:

many people dont understand what real religion is.This is unfortunate as they think it is like joining a particular team.Actually we are ALL spirit souls and not even these bodies so we cant be labelled Christian ,Muslim etc.
Dawkins mission is to try to break the faith of many of these people he does it in the name of raising consciousness but he should use his intelligence to help peolpe understand what real religion is.

andy2asde says:

“if you are dumb enough to believe in this cretins ideas”. Great… you just insulted every person who watched this video and found his arguments persuasive… Not that great of an idea when your trying to persuade others that your argument is correct.

andy2asde says:

And what is it that makes him “not qualified” to speak on issues such as consciousness? There are many things that people do not understand yet engage in discussions about it (take the LHC for example). Does that mean these people have no right to speak as well? It doesn’t matter if he doesn’t know how to “raise it all the best” (w/e you mean by that). The thing is that he is able to do it and has been successful to getting his points across to many people.

andy2asde says:

Enslave us? Where did you even get this? And what are you trying to get at by including existentialism into this argument? To me, it sounds like you are including it to sound very educated, yet, the nature of your responses prove otherwise.

andy2asde says:

 Assuming I translated your argument correctly: This has just basically turned into an all out attack with little basis what so ever. Where did you get the assumption that there is no free will in his world view? If you watch his videos, you can see that he does not want people to follow religion so blindly.

andy2asde says:

So what does it mean when someone tries to convert me. If what you say is true then this can be applied to any religious preacher or person who tries to convert another person to his or her religion.

andy2asde says:

@noddyguitar @noddyguitar Um, I think you are over critical of Dawkins argument here. He is just trying to raise awareness of certain oddities in religion.

paul glenn-jones says:

join the Atheist revolution well make everything alright yeah yeah well set things right we have all the answers yeah yeah trust in us we care yeah yeah

paul glenn-jones says:

incidentally freewill is a fact and even if you are dumb enough to believe in this cretins ideas you still have a choice as to whether you accept them or not

paul glenn-jones says:

the fact of the matter is people like Dawkins are not qualified to speak on issues such as consciousness he doesnt know what consciousness is and he doesnt know how to raise it all the best

paul glenn-jones says:

these are just a few ideas no space to write properly here dont be fooled by this guys fake piety he doesnt actually believe you have freewill to choose anyhow .his idea is that if you just instill more of the correct information then your Brain will have no choice but to accept his conclusions

paul glenn-jones says:

because if were the brain like you say the IN FACT i have NO CHOICE it is simply a matter of programming.I mean according to him thats not you making a decision your brain already has and you are in the illusion that you exist and are making responsible decisions.

paul glenn-jones says:

any intelligent person will see through the false humility of these no self philosophers who dont want to free you but enslave you.i mean come on Richard do i exist therefore do i have a choice or not its pretty simple

paul glenn-jones says:

I mean if my brain is programmed to believe in God then what are you trying to do unprogramme it so it believes in richard dawkins is this the idea?Its kind of like instilling information into a fucking robot.Yet he poses as a freethinker whilst denying your freewill

paul glenn-jones says:

you see what this fool is trying to do is to “raise the consciousness” of a self whom he denies the existence of.I suppose our brains are supposed to be thankful to this false messiah and make believe we can make decisions whether or not to follow his advice.Of course to be consistent with his world view there is no free will anyhow so its impossible to do that.

paul glenn-jones says:

i am not a robot

paul glenn-jones says:

by the way any of you guys who think they are the brain or an illusion created by the brains complex activity can please not get upset by my questions after all i dont exist either.
