this is a spin off from my last 'Reasons for Doubt' thread

Now i want to pose a questions that, theoretically, the ToE should be able to answer. I dont really have a premis for this discussion except to say that denying the existence of a Creator does not still man’s quest for a meaning to life. If we are simply animals along a long evolutionary chain, we are no different to them and should not exhibit the traits we do.

And to start it off, in The Brain Book, Peter Russell writes: “The more that is learned about the human brain, the more its capacities and potentials are found to go far beyond earlier speculations.”

In regard to memory, for instance, our brain has an enormous capacity. They have discoved that Memory is not like a container that gradually fills up, it's more like a tree growing hooks onto which the memories are hung. Everything you remember is another set of hooks on which more new memories can be attached. So the capacity of memory keeps on growing. The more you know, the more you can know.

This brings us back to my earlier question, Why does the human brain have such a vast intellect? What purpose does it serve in evolutionary terms.

As a believer in creation, i believe that it was designed to last and learn forever as God intended...how does ToE explain it?

Blotched effort to spin a message 3 off as a new topic
I thought the new topic would be under Peg's name, not mine.

Shall we all just pretend this never happened?
