Brain Talk

There is a huge difference between computers and the human brain, as we will see on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

While the computer transmits information using electricity, the brain communicates its information using powerful chemicals. Let’s say that you accidentally touch a hot pan on the stove. In less than two‑tenths of a second, millions of reactions take place while your brain performs a huge number of operations. As a result, you pull your hand away from the hot pan – very quickly!

Nor does the brain have set paths for messages, like a computer. If we can use computer language for a moment, the brain writes its own programs, doing many complicated tasks of which you and I are never aware.

We know that the computer is the product of careful design, but to argue that the much more complex human brain is an accident of nature makes very little sense!
