Philosophy Wire: Russel against Theory of Evolution...

Alfred-Russell-Wallace-po-011Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2013-04-18]: The true founder of the Theory of Evolution was against the application of his theory in humans. He claimed that human mind makes us immune to evolutionary change (we can think of how to go to Antarctica without waiting evolution bring us furs). He claimed that every human has a sort of pre-installed idle intelligence somewhere in his brain/mind (which allows us to examine new notions for which we should not already have the logical structures for their examination and which would allow a primitive man coming in the 21st century to understand concepts like mathematics) - even though we know that evolution does not act proactively. [see book “Phantoms in the brain” of V.S. Ramachandran and Sandra Blakeslee] Old thoughts... long gone... Forgotten... Erased... Imposed "consensus" in the scientific community has decided on what is "correct"... Humans not using their mind will prove it...
