@Rickoshay75,
There had been multiple cases of individuals that needed the remival of a huge piece or a complete cerebral hemisphere that remain functional. Although they are never completely neurologically healthy. We need both brains for our correct complete biological, social, and practical function.

Memories have nothing to do with the proper function of a brain.

The brains needs the memory cache as well as the processing system, in a similar fashion for computers. What use is a 1 Tb hard drive filled with information without the motherboard? And what use is the best motherboard available without at least a modest hard drive for information storage?

There are diseases that selectively damage areas of the brain that are related to information processing and judgment. Limbic lesions impair the capability to process new experiences into knew memories. Wernicke area lesions impair the capability of understanding words even if the patients already knew how to read and write.

The brain works as a whole. Every system and every area is important.

@Romeo Fabulini,
All. Open your eyes; it's obvious to the extreme.

@cicerone imposter,
Trying to make sense of god's capabilities is not only daunting, but doesn't make any sense. I remember a time as a child somebody said god knows how many hairs any individual has on their body, because god is all knowing.

I outgrew those fantasies. >>

You are fortunate that you outgrew your earlier brainwashing, Most are stuck with their brainwashing the rest of their lives.

@cicerone imposter,
Believing in a fictional character that can't be proved if he/she/it ever existed is a waste of one's time on this planet. Better to live by one simple rule, "respect and honor all living things." Everything else is dogma. >>

Tillotson says it best

"The truth of things will not comply with our conceits, and interests. Our belief or disbelief of a thing does not alter the nature of things” Tillotson

Hmm...Prof Gertrude Schindler ran some famous ' Sheep and Goats' ESP tests in which closed-minded people scored low, but open-minded people scored better, as if our mindset can influence the nature of things, as if reality is a dream or illusion-

"Some 50 years ago, parapsychologist Professor Gertrude Schmeidler ran a series of Extra-Sensory Perception experiments which have become famous as the "Goats and Sheep" experiments.
Basically she found that subjects who simply acknowledged the possibility that ESP exists (the Sheep), tended to score higher than average in standard card-guessing routines, but those subjects who pooh-poohed ESP as "baloney" (the Goats), tended to score below average.

Those results (since replicated by scientists many times over the years since) are fascinating at face value, BUT there's an even more fascinating aspect to it, namely that the Goats score BELOW average.
See? - The laws of chance would dictate that the Goats scores should simply be around average, but they're below average, thereby suggesting the Goats are "digging themselves into a hole" of disbelief!
No wonder Prof Schmeidler says -"This was inexplicable by the physical laws we knew, it implied unexplored processes in the universe, an exciting new field for research. From then on, naturally, my primary research interest was parapsychology"

Respect and honor are proof of God in the ancestor of all things, God the Father.

@Rickoshay75,
It's neither conceit or interests; it's fundamental common sense, factual, and not disprovable.
