Atheists, will it ever be possible for thoughts and intellectual awareness to exist independent of an actual physical brain/body?

Be it in 100, or 1,000 or 1,000,000 years time.

Update:

I am NOT referring to "artificial intelligence". That type of thing requires natural human intelligence to program and design it in the first place.

    You seem to believe life and existence are as we know it today.

    Yes. it's called a spirit. when you sever the spirit bonds of your soul then you'll be a living thought person incarnate, ghost, spirit, revenant, wraith, spectre , shadow person or whatever else you want to call it!

    Thoughts are physical, not non-physical. But we can't currently physically detect thoughts (we can only detect the RESULTS of thoughts).

    When science finally discovers physical thought we will then be in a position to manufacture actual thoughts that will be totally independent of a body or a brain.

    That type of progress will herald in the total demise of all religious belief.

    I don't know.

    Do you have verifiable evidence which points to a better answer?

    We only think the body is an important part of our lives. We give the body purpose; it doesn't give us purpose.

    So we give it existence, but we don't have power to create so it's but a dream.

    We don't make mind,. God does.
