Martin

You've strung all readers of this thread along for days now, promising a new way of scientifically dealing with your ever-yet unevidenced proposal that there is an immaterial part of the physical brain.

You've reneged on that promise, and yet you seem to think that all your unpremised statements ought to be treated with respect. I think you should be grateful that any here have had even the slightest amount of time to respond to you after such a dismal showing.

I didn't wish to parade my personal life around just for the hell of it. I ventured to offer some details of it to contrast my loved ones' own wonderful attitudes to life and death with your own terrified, belittling and crippling notions of dealing with the end.

I don't see the slightest bit of integrity or honesty in you, Martin. Your religion - whatever it is, as you seem to delight in never being specific about it - has perversely made of you a small and bitter and unsympathetic man. There does not seem to be the slightest shred of decency or kindness in you.

Simply, though, you could still disentagle yourself from the entire mess which is Martin Woodhouse's status on these boards by doing the one thing you've promised to do and never have. Justify your claims of an immaterial mind and of how it interacts with the material.

Claw back some respect. It's not too late.
