Cambrian Explosion: more early brains (Introduction)

DAVID: Committees of somatic cells make brains? That is your leap of faith.

dhw: Committees of cells, in which the somatic cells probably follow instructions issued by the “brains” of the community, which you say are situated in the germ cells, your version of the “brains” being a 3.8-billion-year computer programme for all innovations, lifestyles etc., which your God installed in the very first cells to be passed on to all subsequent cells and cell communities. But no, it's not my leap of faith. I offer it as an alternative to your computer/dabbling hypotheses.

I'm sorry but I don't see it as an alternative. It strains my credulity. A brain is too complex even in the Cambrian to appear without prior planning by a very developed intellect.
