What's non-supernatural dualism?

That there is some extra factor that makes up our minds, that is more than just the activity of neurons. One example is the ideas of the philosopher David Chalmers.

By the way, have you considered trying your hand at debating theists, publicly and not in writing, i.e. on a stage somewhere? I think I would enjoy seeing that.

I would be very reluctant. Such debate are won by rhetoric, not by facts. It can be about who talks more loudly and faster.

The kind of debate I enjoy is like this:

you against al-Rawandi? Pick a topic. ;-)

I would not stand the slightest chance, either in terms of facts or energy!
