Hmmm, really. Dinocrisis, by simply "clipboarding" a whole section from the website "How Stuff Works" does not, in any shape or form, involve you "refuting" anything. Copying information and then pretending that it is your own is a very sad thing to do and it impresses no one, particularly the many highly qualified individuals who regularly contribute to this site.
Indeed what intrigues me even more is that you feel that you have, by posting this piece of plagiarism, in some way or other "proved" that deja vu "does not exist".
I can clipboard dozens and dozens of articles and monographs that "prove" that the Bible, specifically the New Testament, is a collection of unhistorical "fairy stories" written between 70 and 150 years after the death of Christ. This would not, in my opinion, refute anything other than evidencing that on the web you can find "proof" for anything.
I know, as do approximately 75% of all human beings, that the deja phenomenon does exist because I experience it on a regular basis. I suspect that that is a far higher number than people who have had direct "proof" that any one variation of "God" or "Gods" exist by personal revelation.
In your own simple way you have become rather confused. The deja phenomenon exists, what is questioned by Dr. Brown is not the existence of the subjective phenomenon, nobody with any intelligence will deny that, but how the phenomenon is interpreted. Many, including Dr. Brown, feel that there is a neurological explanation (which is, as I understand it, the position Anthony takes ... and you would know this if you had read his books). Others think that there is a supernatural explanation such as the phenomenon could be explained by reincarnation or some form of collective memory carried within the DNA. Indeed I find it somewhat odd that a "religious" person such as yourself is on the side of the materialists on this one.
However Brown's hypothesis fails to explain any of the regularly experienced precognitive elements of the deja vecu sensation. Again I know this happens because I have regularly experienced it. But then again I am simply a misguided idiot who happens to have a masters degree in biology!
