somebody tried to use this argument on me, except the said china and not brain. FAIL.

I saw this too. Only it was much more long-form, set in a college classroom, the teacher was a professor, and the student was claimed to be Einstein. I laughed my fat ass off.

The teacher isn't answering the questions correctly...the answer to both the brain questions is actually yes. You can see your brain, all you have to do is cut someone's head open and the vast majority of times, you will find their brain. Consequently, you can also touch the brain.

The first set of questions is ridiculously inane in their lack of relevancy.

@Craig Nomazlab got it just right. I'll use, I'll tell: "..I can't touch mine, but lets go to the morgue and see if we can touch a brain. Now take me where we can touch your god."

I have not seen a lot of things! The inside of my body is the closest territory of very limited travel experience, and I hope to keep it that way! LOL

Big Bang? No plane flights there or back! LOL

Sub-atomic particles? Experimental access mostly!

God? Not talking, anecdotal may be?

Soul? Nice idea, metaphorical at best?

The state of common ignorance? Sad, blundering, with excess certainty?

Right on...so...the next question the teacher should ask is"Can you MRI god?"
