Darwinists never give up. No matter how hard the question, natural selection did it. When it comes to ‘consciousness’ the same knee-jerk response is given. Let’s say at once that we simply don’t know how homo sapiens evolved. We don’t even understand homo sapiens. Any discussion of ‘consciousness’ should distinguish it from ‘self-consciousness’ and make some statement about ‘hyper-consciousness’ or so-called ‘enlightenment’. But biologists are incapable of this kind of sophisticated enquiry. The thumbsucking thesis of natural selection can’t be allowed any exceptions.
