Brain scan images… are not pictures of our brains in action, and so they are positively not images of our minds at work.

… unlike religious fundamentalists, scientific fundamentalists do not realize that their opinions are based on faith… committed materialists have made science into a kind of religion.  They believe that there is no reality but material or physical reality…  These materialist beliefs are often taken for granted by scientists, not because they have thought about them critically, but because they haven’t.  To deviate from them is heresy, and heresy harms careers…  there is still no proof that consciousness is merely brain activity.  Leading journals such as Behavioural and Brain Sciences and the Journal of Consciousness Studies publish many articles that reveal deep problems with the materialist doctrine.”
