David's theory of evolution Part One (Evolution)

DAVID: Wow! None of your scientists talk about the equivalent of a cellular brain. They simply note the cells show reactions that appear to be intelligent, an impression which is never proof.

dhw: We know the theory can’t be proved, any more than you can prove that they are NOT intelligent, but if one believes that cells are intelligent and intelligence is linked to a brain, it is only logical to assume that cells have the equivalent of a brain. Albrecht-Bühler thinks the centrosome is the cell’s equivalent of the brain.

DAVID: I don't care what one hyperbolic scientist thinks. He has no consensus.

You said none of “my scientists” talks about the equivalent. I have named one. There is no theory that has a consensus – otherwise there would be no discussion. But your dismissal of “most scientists” as unthinking Darwinists, and of scientists who disagree with you over cellular intelligence as “hyperbolic”, casts a much darker shadow over yourself than over them. I hope these statements were merely the product of a bad day on the ranch.
