This presentation is taken from the debate between Hamza Andreas Tzortzis and Professor Peter Simons. In his initial presentation Hamza argues that current biological and philosophical explanations fail to explain consciousness comprehensively. He asserts that no matter if we found out everything about the brain and it’s neurochemical activity we will never be able to grasp and comprehend inner subjective conscious states. He concludes that God’s existence is the best explanation for this phenomenon.
