Quote# 86146

The strongest argument against the evolution of humans is that man's intellect which is not physical could not have evolved. Only physical things can evolve and since humans thought are not made of sustance. therefore they could never have evolved. This means that we of today are exactly like ADAM and EVE were created.

Take a basic course in neurology, or heck, google "brain chemistry" or hell, even just "brain" for that matter. I think you'll find very quickly that thoughts, like this lovely one that you decided to post on the internet, are indeed quite physical.

I thought it was human emotion that was arbitrarily attributed to the soul in the fundie dictionary, now intellect is as well? I wonder what he thinks the brain DOES all day..

Thoughts are not made of "sustance", yeah ok, tell that to brain damage victims who's thoughts and personalities change.

It's a mistake to imagine that the brain is the physical organ responsible for thought. Nothing could be further from the truth. The brain is simply a kind of refuge for visiting godlings who soon advertize their residency by causing the host to produce excessive amounts of drool. This is similar to placing a 'Do Not Disturb' sign on the door.

Let me screw with your brain and find out how non-physical your intellect is.

Well there are certainly no thoughts of substance here...

Physiology of the brain says you're stupid.

Too much stupid to reply so I will just recommend studying physiology and psychology.

In a nutshell, the healthy living brain (physical) is required for all of that intellect. Even specific regions of the brain have been found to be control centers for various aspects of personality such as intellect, cognition, sensation, perception, emotion, and memory (just to name a few).

Please get a fucking education. Please.

Yep, no doubt about it; the brain means nothing.

Remove your brain and see how much intellect you have.

On second thought, now I understand why you think intellect is not physical.

Human thought is made up of electrical transmissions in the brain. Very physical, stupid.

Only physical things can evolve

Physical things like...cerebral cortexes?

"Thought" is an action, not a physical entity. You might as well say that evolution is false because "run" isn't a physical body part. However, every action we take, including thinking, requires the use of a physical body part such as the legs and brain and both of those can and do evolve.

This is the worst argument in favor of creationism I've ever heard, and I've heard a lot of them.

I guess it never occurred to Raypare that man's brain evolved which gave him a higher intellect?

Ever heard of a brain? Of you haven't.

"The strongest argument against the evolution of humans is that man's intellect which is not physical could not have evolved. Only physical things can evolve and since humans thought are not made of sustance. therefore they could never have evolved."

The brain evolved. The brain is where consciousness, thoughts, and intellect reside.

Of course, you're posting on CARM so you probably think that they come from your stomach or heart.

"This means that we of today are exactly like ADAM and EVE were created."

You're a moron. Go away.

Dude, for real, take a drill to your head. Meat will be visible in the hole. You'll know that this meat is responsible for your thoughts when you can't think properly anymore. Because you drilled your thinking meat. Although reading your comment, I have to wonder if you haven't tried ultra-deep trepanning already.

Clearly THIS thought has no "sustance," but otherwise, of course they do.

Just because your brain has not evolved since it was pond scum doesn't mean the same applies to all of us.

Are you out of your mind? Human intellect is totally physical. Have you ever heard of a little thing called THE BRAIN?!

Oh wait, you're a creationist; you probably haven't.
