    Well, if that's what you really believe about consciousness, then ok, we are worlds apart, since I know trees are living, but last I heard, they don't do much thinking. At this point, have a nice day. :) It's been an interesting conversation, but as I said, we are worlds apart in recognition of what "I" consider reality. :)

    They do and they act. Yeah, we are worlds apart. Have a nice day or night, whatever. :)

    Lol if a tree hits me I don't think it thought about it. But anyway... it's been interesting.

    Not yours? (but anyway, that's the insurance company's figuring usually, either way -- you don't believe in God anyway, so out goes your argument that trees think. :) )
    On the other hand, if a tree or boulder hits you -- are you saying God did it? You don't believe in God anyway -- so I'm beginning to think (consciously) that you are playing a nice big game. (Have another nice day.) :)

    um...in your consciousness, do you decide when you are an atheist, or a Hindu? :) To the best of my knowledge, Hindus are not described as atheists. Just wondering from your self-description. :)

    No, I am a strong Hindu atheist. I will attribute it to probability and uncertainty.
    No again, I won't say that, I am a strong Hindu atheist.
    Yeah, it is a nice ball game. Have a good day or night, whatever it is at your place.
    Does your God think? Does he have a brain?
    Yes, I am a Hindu and a strong atheist. There have been some views in Hinduism which do not accept existence of God (Nireeshwaravada of Samkhya; Vaisheshika, the Hindu atomic philosophy; and some flavors of 'Vedanta'). I believe in a strict form of non-duality, 'Advaita Vedanta', which does not recognize any difference between any two objects in the universe and believes that they are constituted by the same entity. For example, an emperor or a sage and a pebble in the river. Therefore, there is no place for a God or Goddess in my belief - Gaudapada - Wikipedia, Khyativada - Wikipedia.
