Isn't the word "consciousness" becoming an excuse to replace the outdated "god" word?.. the reason i am suggesting this is because the public whether educated or religious are agreeing that science is becoming a new form of religion. i have had debates on this topic. but even if science is becoming a form of religion, it is still way better than any known religion out there. and in my opinion, people still fear death so they start to add wrong ideas inside of the body of science by calling it a religion and that: since religion failed to proof god's existence and science does not give a damn about
god's existence, then god lives in each one of us under the new name: consciousness.
