touche. very good counter-example.

nonetheless, activity and growth in the anterior cingulate cortex and amigdyala tend to be mutually exclusive. in fact, the amigdyla has a tendency to hijack the higher cognitive functions.

I would suggest your theory is holed by the prominent example cited.

But if one example is not sufficient, here are too many to name, among them Maxwell, Planck, Heisenberg, etc.

that's not how statistics work. the prominent example cited is an anomaly. i could cite another prominent example, too: einstein. but the examples are empirical evidence just as much as the scientific evidence that went into the papers i read are based on empirical evidence. the evidence that went into the papers is more numerous and more discursive, but on the other hand, those examples are large deviations. in any case, they are both true. as always there is simply more to be discovered about neuroanatomy and how the different parts of our brain interact.

Well, you're drawing a conclusion for a specific instance based on statistics, which seems similarly foolish. There is evidence for that specific case in question which refutes your statistics-based contention.

This is a very silly line of argument to have begun in the first place, imho.

there is no evidence for that specific case in question, and evidence does not refute.

also it is a very rigorous and practical to understand how how the mind works, what makes it better at things and worse. nothing silly about that at all.

Funny that the original Farnsworth was a Mormon IIRC.

Guess he was IQ impeded as well according to happyjack and didn't have the "mind for it" to develop anything successfully. Ah well.

I think Atheistic scientists are a relatively recent phenomenon. That link I posted up thread is a veritable "Who's Who" among World famous scientists.

Even so, Kiteman is right. If we are going to continue slewing into this topic, it should be in "General."
