quote:Just as some background there was a previous thread on this same topic, Genetics and Human Brain Evolution.
There is some serious deja vu going on here. The initiator of the previous thread (eggasai) is undoubtedly the same person as the initiator of the current thread (txchvs); both are Mark Kennedy, who is (as he wrote) a regular on Christian Forums, where he has argued about human/chimpanzee genetics and human brain development for years. I suspect he forgot he'd already debated the subject on this forum.
See, it didn't even occur to me that he's been through this here before. All I had to rely on was my 6th sense, or my instinct. And my 6th sense told me that this was a hit and run case. Like I said, I'm getting quite good at this prophecy thing.
quote:Its a shame if he has given up since from his OP it sounded like he had at least got past some of the most screwed up ideas he had last time, although he still sounded pretty mixed up.
I can't say that I've seen any change in his arguments over at Christian Forums (including his unusual interpretation of what "per nucleotide" means in a mutation rate). It doesn't much matter, though, if he isn't going to post here.
