The Bat

Consider the bat, which uses echo location (sonar) to locate prey.  The existence of echo location raises a question with two possible answers.  How does the bat interact with the sonar information it receives:

  1.  It is purely mechanical, similar to an onboard targeting controller on a torpedo equipped with sonar.
  2. It “senses” the prey, as a qualia.  A sense we can never know about, i.e. how it feels.  Similar to the fact you can never show me “blue” as you sense it.

This question is unsolvable, and it is IMPOSSIBLE to answer.  Pondering this will give you insight into the immaterial world, which exists.  The existence of the immaterial world is a fatal flaw for atheists.
