Evolution: more genomic evidence of pre-planning Part One (Evolution)

DAVID: The excess cells are part of a tool supply for our brain to complexify itself tailored to our new needs.

dhw: You have repeated the core of my theory, except that once more you drag in "excess". The new cells do indeed “tailor” the brain to enable it to fulfil our new needs. New cells are necessary and are acquired as the brain “tailors itself”

The new cells popped up 315,000 years ago, and little used until recently, as in language theoretically 70,000 years ago. I view 'acquired' in your statement, should be 'required'.

dhw: All new cells will obviously enhance the range of complexification.

Of course.

DAVID: The way the excess helped is it allowed for precise tailoring of needed networks by the complexification process. It is obvious the remaining neurons played an active role in the process, and more than likely the excess cells were mainly passive. So much for your distorted view of what I theorize.

dhw: As above, if the new cells allowed the brain to meet the new requirement(s), they can't have been "excess", and they would have continued to perform the same essential function. I don’t know why you think new cells that continue to perform the function which made them necessary in the first place should suddenly stop functioning (“mainly passive”).

You don't understand the concept of light use of the first sapiens frontal lobes. How much abstract thought occupied them? Zilch.

dhw: It seems to me more than likely that the new cells added to our capacity for design, new thoughts, new ideas, and it could just as easily be the new cells that remained and some of the existing cells that proved to be redundant.

With so many excess neurons it could be either/or.

DAVID: We use our brains without God's current help, because of the way He set it up for us. What are you smoking?

dhw: And what is the way he set it up for us, if it is not by endowing the cells with the intelligence to do their own thinking? I don’t smoke.

Yes, the cells had intelligent instructions as to how to complexify according to new needs.

DAVID: Autonomous brain complexification is because the brain follows God's implanted genetic instructions exactly.

dhw: What do the “implanted genetic instructions” consist of? Please tell us what you think your God's instructions tell the autonomous brain to do.

How to complexify to fit new uses. Our frontal lobes have a construction like no other living brain as a result. God designed our brain, giving it marvelous facility.
