"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

"It is clear that the minds are the most important part of the universe, and that everything was established for their sake; that is, in choosing the order of things, the greatest account was taken of them; all things being arranged in such a way that they appear the more beautiful the more they are understood."

G. W. Leibniz

Atheism Versus Intelligent Design: Another Dog and Pony Show

This so called debate here is inconsequential because both sides are looking for proof or disproof of some mechanism of divinity. Very sad. The human mind's historically verifiable increasing power over nature is a non mechanistic proof that that selfsame willful human creativity is uniquely sui generis. This is the truth in the biblical injunction that man take dominion over nature. Today that signifies the mission of colonizing space. Beyond that, all this dog and pony show of atheism versus intelligent design is so much unintelligible blather.
