The above ontological example models the zero premise to BB theory. It does so by applying the relative uniformity assumption that the alleged zero event eventually ontologically progressed from the compressed alleged sub-microscopic chaos to bloom/expand into all of the present observable order, more than it models the Biblical record evidence for the existence of Jehovah, the maximal Biblical god designer. -Attributed to Buzsaw Message 53
The explain to them any scientific investigation that explains the existence of things qualifies as science and as an explanation -Attributed to Dawn Bertot Message 286
Does a query (thats a question Stile) that uses this physical reality, to look for an answer to its existence and properties become theoretical, considering its deductive conclusions are based against objective verifiable realities. -Attributed to Dawn Bertot Message 134
Most biologists and anthrologists (?) believe that our brains got so large so that we could better understand and communicate with each other. This has obvious advantages, especially back when it first began to evolve. The cons began to outway the pros eventually, and our brain size caps off at about 1400cc (cubic centimeters). Other aps probably did not need it and it may have something to do with the fact that we are bipedal. Many late bipedal apes did have relatively large brains, as a matter of fact.

When I was in grad school some years ago my physical anthropology professor things larger brain size was a side effect.
He was of the opinion that the change to H. erectus involved a number of things, including more grassland adaptation, more bipedalism (and running), tool use, family structure, and that much of this came about in conjunction with persistence hunting.
Also included were loss of heavy body hair (for better cooling), much better memory and spacial sense (for tracking an animal and then remembering where you left the family after the hunt), and, to a lesser degree, communication (for the hunt and for explaining to the family if you were gone for days and didn't come back with anything).
Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.
