Lol. there it is again... "jumped to the conclusion there must be something divine?" Very narrow minded...
Keep in mind that you are speaking to someone who does not conform to any religion whatsoever.
That said, that doesn't mean I don't question the many things I can't prove.
And when you do speak of religion, it's all about the corrupt, the perverse and the war waging, mass genocide inducing extremes that you cite... far different from people just having their own personal belief system. Whether it's true or not, you telling them that they're stupid and clueless for their harmless beliefs is no different than the people you "claim" to be above telling you that you're clueless for not adhering to their beliefs.
Fine then, to answer your original question "how do you explain consciousness"
I believe this fully done in the brain where we have different area's and some of these area's enable us to question and learn things, I wish people used that more often. Electrones and pulses go trough our brain and nerve system and we are developed enough to have consciousness.
As I said before, I do not know all the answers to life, but why seek answers to that you can't answer... how would an answer truly help us? it wouldn't... the best thing we can do is to believe what we KNOW, what we can PROVE true so that we can further our knowledge and hopefully further develop our brains.
