So why is it flawed you ask?. First, Yes it's simpler than the transmission theory but just because it's simple does not mean we should favor it. We know for example that reality is not simple and the universe certainly is mysterious. So I got a challenge to the materialist's if they can rebut the evidence that points strongly in the direction that consciousness survives death. Not cherry pick either but rebut it where it makes sense and cannot be countered by evidence.
I am certain a lot of materialist's assert that dualists are creationists and believe that the universe is only 2,000 years old. Sorry, to give the materialists bad news but that is not the case.
