Evolution and Human Consciousness

Believers in particle-to-protester evolution have struggled for a mighty long time to cogently explain the origin of consciousness. Not just awake or asleep, but the way that humans have far more ways of exhibiting the ability to think and having a mind. This is obvious when comparing us to apes.

There is an insurmountable gap between the minds of humans and apes, and this has been a serious problem for evolutionists ever since Darwin.

Ever have an ape make a snide remark disparaging your intelligence? Of course not, that was a silly question. The Bearded Buddha scientifically evaded the problem of the divide between human consciousness and the lack of it in apes, and engaged in wishful thinking. When evolutionists use what is essentially "maybe someday", that's not science, old son.

There are some criteria that seem reasonable that show how humans think on a much higher level than apes. One of these is the use of tools. Sure, chimps can bang rocks against walnuts to open them up, but they cannot design and build tools of any complexity. Another example is artwork. Even the ancient cave paintings showed surprisingly intricate detail. Then we have written language. Parties involved have to both understand it when they communicate in writing. (Incidentally, a new study claims that Hebrew is the first written language.) There are more criteria, but these three are insurmountable to Darwin's disciples. That is because we were created in God's image, so we have minds and intelligence.
One of the most significant gaps, actually a chasm, between modern humans and their putative common ancestor is mind, often generally called human consciousness. The research reviewed here reveals an unbridgeable chasm exists between animal and human minds. Some animals have certain senses that are superior to humans, such as eyesight, but no animal can work algebra or trigonometry problems, write poetry, monographs, or even a short thoughtful letter to a friend. Nor can any animal calculate a Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient (PPMCC), let alone understand the meaning of statistical results.
Nor can they calculate stress loads on bridge trusses, or a thousand other problems that are a common part of school, business, and life, in spite of the fact that the lower primates have allegedly had a lot of evolutionary time to achieve some of these skills. The most recent estimate by evolutionists is that “modern humans appeared quite abruptly in eastern or southern Africa sometime between 150,000 and 200,000 years ago and went on to conquer the world.”
