Revisiting language and brain expansion (Evolution)

DAVID: With these findings it indicates our cerebellum is a part of the brain far advanced from the cerebellum in other primates. The circuits described show how our cerebellum is integrated with the cerebrum. Once again our most unusual brain is demonstrated in new studies. The Difference of Man and The Difference it Makes still is a major point in the proof of God.

dhw: All agreed. These findings also support the materialist view of consciousness, and as we have seen throughout the history of this forum, the complexity of all life forms, including the single cell, is a major point in the argument for God’s existence. But just in case any casual reader should interpret this as a renunciation of the AgnosticWeb’s agnosticism, there are equally major points in the argument against the existence of the unknown, hidden, sourceless, omnipotent, omniscient, immaterial being that David believes in.

DAVID: Same retort: if design keeps you agnostic, who/what is your designer?

Same answer: if you can believe that a supreme, conscious mind can simply exist without any source, you might as well believe that conscious minds can evolve spontaneously from material sources. I find these two beliefs equally unbelievable.
