What utter bollocks! Science has provided the evidence of how the brain appears to be necessary for consciousness, rendering earlier speculation about souls and dualistic existance as unnecessary. As a result of that better understanding, and in the absence of any example of a consciousness without a brain, it is the rational conclusion that a brain appears to be necessary. The question is not whether it is "possible" for consciousness to exist without a brain but whether we have any reason to believe it is.

It takes courage to face up to this delusion and realize it is possible for consciousness to continue after death.

More bollocks. The idea of life after death is a comforter, a security blanket for those who find the idea of their existance coming to an end upsetting. It takes no courage whatsoever to give up reality in favour of a comforting delusion.
