Can evolution explain how minds work? Probably not.
Animal minds can be highly developed yet quite different from each other.
Recent findings suggest that crows fear death — many purposefully avoid places where other crows have died.
Reporting on research from the University of Haifa, New Scientist advises, “Bonobos use a range of tools like stone-age humans.”
If we can’t even define our own consciousness, can we say whether a different type of life form has consciousness or a mind?
Over the past couple of months, we have talked to the fossils and their surviving descendants.
Darwin explained clearly and eloquently the pattern we should find in the fossil record if his theory was correct.
Perhaps it is not individuals, but groups that are selected to somehow survive.
We are still stuck for a mechanism that replaces intelligence.
Things that can’t survive don’t. But why would that fact drive nature to produce anything as simple as a kitten?
