Do you understand that repeating a falsehood does not make it any more correct?
Poor leadfoot, do you still remember that I said "you are profoundly ignorant in science"? Your thinking pattern confirms it once again.
Well, it seems that I have no other choice but to introduce some basic knowledge here, for you, and for your lot:
(1) Do you agree that the theory of evolution is a corner stone of biology
Most of today's sincere biologists answer this with a resounding Yes.
(2) Neuroscience is also usually called neurobiology. Traditionally, neuroscience is considered as a branch of biology.
(3) Among many branches of neurobiology, or neuroscience, there is Evolutionary Neurobiology
, which studies the evolution of nervous systems.
You said your nueroscientist friend "said evolution had nothing to do with the direction their research took." I hope his research is not Evolutionary Neurobiology. In what context did he say it?
And finally, Francis Collins, the director of NIH
, concluded in the page 96 of his The Language of God:
No serious biologist today doubts the theory of evolution to explain the marvelous complexity and diversity of life. In fact, the relatedness of all species through the mechanism of evolution is such a profound foundation for the understanding of all biology that it is difficult to imagine how one would study life without it.
