It quite ruffles my feathers when I hear some scientist say "science knows nothing about consciousness". What is really going on here is that no one knows what it is that they are calling consciousness so it is a bit premature to ask science for it's explanation. My title for the thread the opening is about that problem.

Philosophers do not know jack shit about consciousness. If they did the abundant science we have today about the brain and biology would be quick to tell you what exactly it is.
