Consciousness: and brain damage (General)

dhw: Being convinced that God exists does not give you exclusive access to your God’s mind. It is perfectly possible to believe in God and to believe that he purposefully created a mechanism which allowed for all life forms to develop as they have done, in an ever changing spectacle of wonders, including but not confined to the brain of Homo sapiens.

DAVID: God did create a mechanism of evolution that lead to the bush of life. We don't disagree. Where we differ is I see our brain as a purposeful end point.

I’m afraid our disagreement is far wider-ranging, since I propose that the mechanism runs autonomously, whereas you insist that every innovation, lifestyle and natural wonder has been preprogrammed or dabbled. Your view of the human brain varies from it being the sole purpose to its being “a purposeful end point”. If it’s the latter, please tell us what other purposeful end points you think your God had in mind.
