Dawkins argues....that humans are conscious because chemicals complexly collide in the brain to proudce a phantom we ignorantly call the mind. ... Common sense finds it hard to take this argument seriously, however, because it leads to nonsense.  The brain contains an enormous amount of water and salt.  Are we to assume that water is intelligent, or salt is conscious?  If they aren't, then we must assume that throwing water and salt together - along with about six other basic building blocks of organic chemicals - suddenly makes them intelligent

The english language contains 26 letters.  Are we to assume that throwing a bunch of letters together--along with about six other basic punctuation marks--suddenly makes a coherent argument? (Sal apparently does)

This is truly a concentration of Tard so dense that it creates a black hole o' Tard, and by even quoting it you risk slipping past the event horizon and being thrown into an alTardnate universe.
