And then how do you deal with the response "what about the people who can't get vaccinated due to medical reasons?"

So would me (or you) be the only person to experience while everyone else is a zombie? That's a complety useless model.

The part of me that feels pain is the brain, and it too is demonstrably a physical phenomenon, unless medical companies have a massive conspiracy to slip some "unseen" shit into painkillers.

What is your "ultimate authority of morality", and why must one exist?

What do you mean exactly by the "unseen"? Can you demonstrate an "unseen" anything, or is it something you cannot prove?

Again, not all, and you're talking to me right now, not all atheists. I can't absolutely prove right now that I feel pain to you any more than you can, but not only is it a reasonable assumption given our biological similarity, but we simply couldn't function as humans, as a social species, without making it. It doesn't matter if you believe in a soul or not, every single person needs to make that assumption. How does a "soul" that you can't prove exists solve that problem, anyway?

There you go again. Prove there is a soul. You say consciousness, thoughts, aren't material, yet we can analyze the material to replicate thoughts. You seem to be arguing for a "soul of the gaps", that because we can't perfectly explain everything about consciousness yet that there's some supernatural element involved, instead of giving the honest answer that we don't know- yet. And again, not all atheists don't believe in souls.

Why are you you and not me? That's a really fucking easy one. Our brains are different. We can see consciousness materially as well, btw. We can do pretty well at creating imagined images from brain scans, and we're only getting better as time goes on. You're the one making up bullshit properties with zero proof.

Sounds like the kind of shit you'd make up to avoid answering questions to me. I know I'm not one, and it's reasonable to assume you're not one as well. I'm not a sociopath, after all. How about you ask what people actually believe instead of just making shit up?

How about you prove there is a "soul" when everything about consciousness points to it being a natural phenomenon? Chemicals, electricity, and physical damage can alter your consciousness, which wouldn't make sense if it wasn't physically derived. Ironically, you are rejecting science because it hurts your feelings. It also says nothing at all about the value of things, but many atheists view life and consciousness as infinitely more precious precisely because it isn't infinite. You've got the one, that's it, when you die it's game over forever.

Oh, and you can believe in a soul of sorts and be an atheist, and most atheists are agnostic.

Show me all the cases of polio and smallpox now, then. I'll wait.

Point me to all the deaths caused by vaccines. Looking at India, their life expectancy has been steadily growing, to the point they're not even 10 years behind us now.

You get to watch a mexican child who lives with his mother deny the holocaust and t-pose in front of teenage girls in a fortnite hoodie

That's the point of a vaccine, to inject you with a weakened or dead form of the microbe that'd cause a serious disease (mRNA vaccines are a bit different but the same basic idea) to trigger an immune response without the threat of a serious infection. Also, smallpox was completely eradicated and polio is only left in 3 countries. And looking at Africa and India's population growth, I don't think fucking infertility is an issue. And a search about your claim about "depopulation through vaccines" shows it's bullshit taken out of context, as usual.

I'm somewhat wary about the covid vaccines because they haven't undergone all the testing they should have (and Trump is at least partially responsible, mind you), but that doesn't change the fact that vaccines as a whole are a sound concept.

If you were to fill up a whole spoon with any of them, yeah, but tiny amounts of chemicals that would be harmful in larger amounts in vaccines are very important antimicrobials. The last thing you'd want to do is inject a whole bunch of live, unweakened microbes that've been feeding on the organic matter in the vaccine instead of the vaccine.

No, there is "your god". Other people around the world (and even here, although in smaller numbers) have other gods, believe it or not, and there's differing views on your god even within christianity.

You said morals can't exist without a god. Islam follows a god, basically the same god as you, in fact.

Here's some verses, not even going into the abhorrent genocidal shit in the old testament for you:

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience.

Romans 13:1-5

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ,

Ephesians 6:5

“If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.

Luke 14:26

“Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a person's enemies will be those of his own household.

Matthew 10:34-36
