"I think first before proving anything God must be defined as in the case of "ignosticism." It's also been said by those who've had religious or mystical experience that there is no longer no doubt, no ignorance, etc. of the…"
"@Gallup When Josh Westhoelter mentioned Bohm's "Quantum Mind" as hypothesis I had no quarrel, because it is, in fact, speculatory. When you asked for "evidence" for "Quantum Mind," I was under the impression that…"
