Consciousness an illusion created by feral neurons Naturalist worldview - Grammar of the material; a material way of saying being; c-101 pp. 1-2 Grammar of the material; a material way of saying being Critique evolutionary neuroscience of consciousness is by its own conclusion an illusionary projection for adaptation cf. course 101 , p. 17 Dialog and Contrast

neuro-effects Proverbs 21:2 Both of our constructs acknowledge an interconnectivity of communities with grammars of faith Acts 2:42 Hearing God Grammar of Evolutionary Biologists Individuals aggregate into religious groups

with similar neural networks that have selfishly interconnected to adapt to their environment by 'hearing ' the (metaphorical) voice of God in order to do His will.

Response in Humility Are many ways of saying being Aristotle

Science has a place of saying in the world of materiality Religion has a place in the world of transcendence Where there is cross over, both can learn in the dialog Saying outside scope raises Lyotardian critiques of grand-narratives where the speakers Logos is really another mythos (i.e. scientism cf.
