The reason I believe in creation, according to a book I’m reading on left-handedness, is because I’m strongly right-handed. Which means, for all people who are “strongly handed”, left or right, their corpus callosum (the internet cable that joins the left and right hemispheres of the brain and enables the transfer of information) is smaller than that of mixed-handed people (that is, people who share tasks between their two hands instead of giving strong preference to one.)
In summary, because my corpus callosum is smaller because I’m so right-handed, I haven’t apparently downloaded and installed the 1859 Darwin update on evolution, and therefore I remain a creationist. Whew! That’s a lot to process. Except I have downloaded the 1859 Darwin update. Many times. I just don’t like it. I’ve never found it convincing, and therefore I’ve never installed it. It’s one thing to observe variation among finches. It’s quite another to move that variation to the macro stage.
What I have downloaded and installed is a program from the Book which says this: “How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.” (Apparently that’s the bit of information that requires correction by the Darwin update.) The problem is, that bit of information for me was installed after the Darwin update was downloaded in Year 11 Biology. Maybe the fault is with the Darwin update, and that is said with as much even-handedness as I can cerebrally pull together.
