Back to David's theory of evolution (Evolution)

DAVID (re leaf-biting): You have your brain sitting in Miss Bee, but not acting as a human brain would have to act to see the relationship.

Axiom: two events separated in time cannot be accepted as related without multiple examples recorded (mentaly or written). This is how observational science works[/i].

Tony: Quantum Physics undermines that axiom quite nicely, but at our scale of existence, sure.

Dhw: It’s not my brain sitting in Miss Bee, and she is not an observational scientist! She simply noticed that a fortnight after she bit a leaf, the plant flowered. So she told her buddies, they tried it, and it worked! You seem to believe that in order to perform the trick, bees should think like humans, can’t do so, and therefore God had to do the thinking for them!

Except that we know the signaling and reception pathways in plants, bees, other insects, and even some birds had to be arise together or there would have been no reason for any of them to develop those pathways because there would have been no benefit.

Lastly, it [is] possible to have both a hard coded program and a set of rules that are not written directly in the program, but referenced by it. In programming this would be known a Rule Engine. What comprises that rule engine is a bit unknown, but given the fact that nature CLEARLY follows rules and laws,that 'rule engine' as it were, is definitely something.

What is the purpose of living? How about, 'to reduce needless suffering. It seems to me to be a worthy purpose.
