How does the activiation of one gene cause the fingers to slowly elongate over many generations?
Intelligent design maybe. Who knows?
But that's an easy one ros.
Imagine you are in a pub quiz.
An intellectual one in a posh area. £2.75 a pint is minimum in posh areas.
A question is asked.
Now- you have to answer out loud.
Your answer is a vibration in the air which the quizmaster can decode.
It is an object. A thing.
Right? Got that? It's simple enough.
So here's the question.
Who is the President of the USA.
Where was the answer before I asked.
I could have asked the % of the earth's surface covered by water. But that's too difficult for most.
Now- was the answer stored?
As an object, as the materialist theory of mind insists. An arrangement of bions, ions, prions,frions, drions, piconanocticals and whatnot totally redundant until the question reflexes it back into operation.
Or was it something immaterial as IDers allow for without being dogmatic about it.
Once it's an object the question arises can a head get so full of useless objects such as when Auntie Bessie's birfday is, like a filing cabinet, that there's no room for any more.
Or is it limitless?
Would a limit result naturally in stubborness.?
I don't see finger elongation as being all that difficult to explain.
Sexual selection seems the obvious suspect.
