"And God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul." Genesis 2:7

And the conspiracy was strong, for the people increased continually - 2 Samuel 15:12

The problem Percy is that the soul, entity, spirit, will, conscienceness, ego and mind are immaterial and outside of science.

But thats basically what the question being asked is. Why do humans have the mental faculties we have. Scientifically we can only talk about the mind naturally. No spirit or anything outside of chemistry is allowed.

Francis Crick says, "The Astonishing Hypothesis is that "You", your joys and your sorrows, your memories and your ambitions, your sense of personal identity and free will, are in fact no more than the behavior of a vast assembly of nerve cells and their associated molecules... The hypothesis is so alien to the ideas of most people alive today that it can truly be called astonishing."

Other scientists such as Richard Dawkins have said similar things. The question is, do these scientific facts apply to Crick and Dawkins aswell or just the members of the public?

So if Cricks and Dawkins theories are "nothing more than random behaviour of nerve cells and molecules", why should we listen to them?
