I’m not an atheist like Pinker is. In fact I think he makes a “non-sequitur” when he argues there exists nothing “beyond” the brain, hence atheism, because of what we know.
However, I have argued before that “the brain is provably a bag of chemicals.” Emphasis on the word provably. According to the relentlessly strict rigors of scientific rationalism and empiricism. That’s what we see below.
