Its smart of you to not go into dogmas and keep your mind open imo. I try to do the same thing. Also just thought this sarcastic video was relevant to your post. nah, i think it a good question, specially since many responses are "shit just happens" lol Sounds like mental gymnastics with a pinch of dualism to me. Anyway reducing everything to chemical processes is very reductionistic, and that is what poster i was talking about did.
