Consciousness: and brain damage (General)

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.

dhw: 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.

DAVID: Of course our disagreement is wider-ranging. To review: life did not start by chance. Evolution cannot procede by chance changes, and the human brain is the pinnacle of life's evolution. That brain is God's main end point as it can relate to Him. I've never deviated from this view.

dhw: I would still like to know what other, less important end points you think your God may have had.

Beyond the brain, providing a broad bush of life to provide the necessary balance of nature to support an energy supply so the evolution of life could continue until sapiens appeared.
