A Question Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! The human brain seems to be useless. Animals have different kinds of organs. Most of them it is easy to find the function of it. An octopus has large tentacles for grabbing crabs, and swimming. A sperm whale has a gigantic fatty head, that focuses soundwaves into a sonic ray gun to stun squids and eat them! (its true) Many organs are simple like this. Legs are for walking. Hands are for grabbing. Teeth are for grinding. Penises are for fucking. Furthermore, nature usually does not give an organ for no reason. If she did, a similar animal without the organ would do the same job, with less waste. That creature would have an evolutionary advantage. A significant portion of a human beings bloodflow goes to the brains. Shit, what is going on in there? Must be something important. Maybe the brain helps us process our waste products? Or maybe it stores excess fatty tissue that would otherwise go straight to our thighs. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! Even more dubious is the claim that brains are for 'consciousness' and 'intelligence'. I simply don't see that happening. Don't we have souls? And what about all those cute critters, don't they have souls too? And what about the universal consciousness? Aren't we a part of that? My mother tells me that god gives these things. Not only that, but that the soul is in the heart, and not in the head. Thanks for all your responses.
