Example: how/why did our senses evolve? What is their physical manifestation? What if the basic drivers could be replicated without the actual physical sensation? For instance, why do we enjoy music? Why does certain food taste so good?
The day is coming quite soon when we will have the ability to directly manipulate these sensations via artificial means. Why devote millions of acres to growing foodstuffs when crops can be genetically altered to produce the most nutrients/calories & combine this with genetically altered humans so that they think they are eating steak?
Ditto music; who needs sound when the same response mechanism can be artificially triggered? Science isn't progessing at a linear or geometric rate; rather, it's practically exponential.
These are exciting times - wasting it on debates with people who you would normally never even know existed, as they operate completely out of your sphere, is a futile excercise.
I'll take it further - in less than five hundred years further developments in quantum physics may help us understand consciousness well enough to evolve beyond the need to occupy a physical body. We'll be able to send our consciousness anywhere in the Universe, with just a thought. And some of us on FR today will still be alive to experience that transformation.
We don't do it for them. The entire mission of these science threads -- aside from the unexpected delight of having met scores of bright, talented, and conservative scientists and engineers working in academia and industry, plus a huge number of others who are highly educated and appreciative of science -- is to demonstrate to the lurkers (there are 669 views of this thread and only 23 posts) that there are conservatives, loads of them, who aren't anti-science idiots.
Maybe those people don't exist. Perhaps you are arguing with a biogenetic computer. Perhaps you are, too.
