Brain Size does not Support Evolution

For quite some time, Darwinists have believed that cranial capacity indicates intelligence, even though that concept has been in disrepute. (Interesting that Neanderthals do not play nicely with evolution, since they had large brains, but after spreading their DNA around, pretty much disappeared except for artifacts, bones and suchlike.) Today, we have two related articles — a doubleheader.


Some evolutionists still cling to the idea that brain size is evidence of evolution and intelligence.

First, a big study was one on volunteers. Researchers learned that, just like people and other parts, brain sizes vary greatly. Although they tried to find evolution by twirling their Charles Darwin Club Secret Decoder Rings©, it still does not work. You don't need to be a brain surgeon to realize that some brilliant people have smaller skulls, and there are less-than-average individuals that have large heads. Biblical creationists realize that God made us with variety, but arbitrary classifications by scientists do not make anyone less human.
We’re all human, but some of us have brains twice the size of others. And areas inside the brain can vary, too. What does this mean?

P. K. Reardon and a team of neuroscientists, publishing new research in Science, studied the brains of 3,000 individuals and found a lot of variation. To evolutionists, this should be surprising, because we’re all members of the same species, Homo sapiens, and all humans are interfertile. We can all learn to eat the same food, we can learn each other’s languages, and we can make children. The same variability we see in body shapes and sizes, hair types, eye color, skin color and other outward traits extend inside our brains as well. Reardon’s team tried to bring evolution into the picture, but how successful are they?

I'm sure you've heard of child prodigies. One of the most famous was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who was mastering instruments and making compositions at an early age. Other child prodigies, whether in music, science, mathematics, and so forth, have been observed through history.

I suspicion that what some biblical creationists have said is correct: people with outstanding skills are distant, poor reflections of the genius of our first parents, Adam and Eve. Regular readers have seen how ancient people demonstrated knowledge that defied the stupid brute expectations of Darwinists, which is a kind of biological racism; secular scientists have no business assigning value to humans based on evolutionary assumptions.

While we do not know the cranial capacities of ancient people, we can use our own gray matter to cogitate on something very basic but possibly startling. Don't be fretting so much, I'll tell you. Ready? Children have smaller brains than adults! After you've settled your heart rates, think on it a spell. A child prodigy shows brilliance with less material to work with than adults. He or she is not less human, but is exhibiting God-given abilities. The idea that larger brain sizes are examples of both evolution and intelligence is downright stupid.
It’s not the size; it’s the wiring. Don’t we know that for electronics? Why are evolutionists still obsessed with brain size?

Measuring skull capacity as a proxy for intelligence has a long history. In his book The Mismeasure of Man (1981), Stephen Jay Gould recounted how Victorian evolutionists were obsessed with skull measurements (craniometry) in their determination to prove Europeans were superior to other races. As he shows, their a priori bias influenced what they “saw” in their measurements as they preferred only the measurements that supported their expectations.
