Octopus Intelligence Poses Evolutionary Convergence Conundrum
Outstandingly bright — with eyes that strikingly resemble ours — yet their ancestors split from mammals and birds 600 million years ago.
What Is It Like to Be a Bee?
What, exactly, does “consciousness” or “feel and think” mean when applied to a bee? This usage is no remote outpost.
In Artificial and Biological Neural Networks, Intelligent Design Is Undeniable
Someday evolutionists might connect the dots. Right now, even simple nerve nets in jellyfish and hydra are remarkably well designed for what they do.
How Octopuses Got So Smart? “Junk DNA”
Jumping genes used to be dismissed as junk DNA which in turn was held to be slam-dunk evidence for unguided evolutionary processes.
If Octopuses Are So Smart, Should We Eat Them?
We have tended to assume that intelligence rose with the development of a spinal cord and brain (vertebrates), and warmbloodedness (mammals and birds).
