From a recent story on bird intelligence:
A researcher from Imperial College London and his colleagues have developed for the first time a map of a typical bird brain, showing how different regions are connected together to process information. By comparing it to brain diagrams for different mammals such as humans, the team discovered that areas important for high-level cognition such as long-term memory and problem solving are wired up to other regions of the brain in a similar way. This is despite the fact that both mammal and bird brains have been evolving down separate paths over hundreds of millions of years.
The team suggest that evolution has discovered a common blueprint for high-level cognition in brain development.
Birds have been shown in previous studies to possess a range of skills such as a capacity for complex social reasoning, an ability to problem solve and some have even demonstrated the capability to craft and use tools.
Colour added, of course.
“Discovered a common blueprint”? If “evolution” is that smart, we may as well just admit that it is design.
By the way, whose blueprint was it? According to the story, evolution didn’t create the common blueprint, only discovered it. So there is someone even smarter out there who actually developed the blueprint. But how was it put into action, down separate paths over hundreds of millions of years?
See what we mean, why you have to teach Darwinism early, before kids begin to theenk?
We could have put up a free photo of a bird, but we figure you would prefer to see this instead:
