human brain must have developed in a different way.
Of course, criticising a solution is easy and only makes sense if you have a better solution to offer. That was the reason why the previous attempts to find a solution for the Münchhausen model failed or were not found.
human mind or culture was not the decisive factor in the development of the
human brain, what was it? Since, according to the theory, there is no targeted
evolution, the trigger needs to be sought in the population of early hominids.
In terms of the solution, I will rely on the research done by primate
researchers. I refer to the hypotheses starting with number 9.
the brain and the mind were not created together, another problem arises: What
prompted the human brain to take on the additional task of becoming the seat of
the human mind, language, consciousness, culture, in addition to its original
idea that Darwin himself presents in the Descent
that the growth of the human brain in evolution to its present size was stimulated by spiritual achievements of prehistoric and early humans, and that there is something like a co-evolution of the brain and culture, cannot be right, because these concepts are tied to a deterministic view of evolution.
one issue cannot be denied: Today’s theories of human evolution all follow the
wrong Darwinian concept. Not only Merlin Donald but also Michael Tomasello and
everyone else assign a decisive role to the mind, language, and culture of man
in the development of the human brain.
addition to language, the concepts of work, the production of stone tools and
cooperation in the prehistoric and early human social groups are regarded as
decisive factors on the way to becoming human beings.
According to Darwin, biological evolution is open-ended and not targeted. That means evolution cannot be understood in terms of its goal, instead in terms of its starting point. A causal chain of argumentation must be built up from the starting point. (Example: feathers were not created to allow the birds to fly.)
Mayr wrote about this in his great work, The
Growth of Biological Thought:
Darwin’s theory uncompromisingly rejects the existence of definitive factor in the cause of evolutionary change
