Declaring that the universe is mind only is not evidence. Scientists require evidence. Of course the assumption that mind arises from neural activity is metaphysical, but that's what the evidence suggests. The honest scientist admits he doesn't know how mind arises but it appears to be intimately linked to brain activity. Otherwise, why do we have a brain and body? Those who preach scientism will say that disembodied mind is "woo." They may be correct

Rather than sneering at scientific thought, why not build a case for considering evidence that is privately contained within your mind? Polemicizing will get you no support from the thoughtful scientific community.
