AG: So, DNA will give us the answer, will it? Deoxyribonucleic acid is in every single cell of living organisms, so I would beg to differ. The answer, if and when they find it, will probably be in the signaling and storage biochemistry of Cephalopod neurons in which a similar matrix pattern to human thought exists, ...

That doesn't make sense.

DNA controls how all cells develop and work, so if the answer is to be found in octopus neurons' networks, then of course it is going to be due to DNA.


Perhaps it doesn't make sense to YOU because you are fixated on nature instead of environment in regard to the development of intelligence. Of course the code of the genetics will produce the general pattern, BUT, the pattern must be observed biochemically BEFORE embryology studies to find out exactly WHICH Gene coding sequence is involved in the process of commanding the manufacture of the neuronic network. It is quite possible that only a certain ENVIRONMENT will stimulate latent intelligence activity while the absence of said environment will not in two genetically identical octopus cephalods. THAT was what the neuroscientist was suspecting in the video.


The octopus is apparently ADAPTING to new environmental conditions from a PRE-EXISTING genetic code. THAT is NOT "evolution". There is NO NEW DNA. That is ADAPTATION.

Evolutionists have a penchant for deliberately confusing adaptation with evolution. That is understandable. They have great difficulties with DNA sequences that just SAT THERE (they used to be called them "nonsence or junk" DNA until they were embarrassed into no longer calling this fully functional, though not always protein coding, DNA as an integral part of the original organism) for no reason. This previously silent DNA suddenly begins coding up some adaptation when triggered by the environment.

"Dormant" DNA is anathema to evolutionists for obvious reasons. If there is no CHANGE in DNA = no
 mutation = no evolution = a package NOT the result of small mutations = intelligent design) the evolutionists would have to stop being atheists. We can't have that, now can we?
