It would be like me saying "Well, human beings are nothing more than their biology, and so if I use beachballs for each atom, and glue them together until I've got a torso in exactly the same physical proportions down to the atomic level, even if it's the size of the solar system, I've accurately emulated a man." And if that's what you want to do with your life, then go for it. But don't you dare claim your view is more accurate to the nature of the thing, whilst insulting others because they don't agree with you. Because it's not true accuracy at all.
I'm made from beachballs .....

..... DAD?
