'Given that the mind is a product of natural selection it should not have a miraculous ability to commune with all truths: it should have a mere ability to solve problems that are sufficiently similar to the mundane challenges of our ancestors.'
Steven Pinker continues:
There are problems in the universe other than these; where the universe came from, how physical flesh can give rise to sentient minds,why bad things happen to good poeple, what happens to our thoughts when we die.'
Ironically Steven Pinker returns to Wallace's Paradox which he rejected earlier in his book How the Mind Works.
I believe Alfred did not limit the scope of the human brain although he questioned its origin.
In contrast Stsven Pinker has to limit the mind since he feels he can only appeal to natural selection.
You pays your money and you takes your choice, or like me, you sit on the fence of a dilemma.
Mind you the view from the fence is much better and a settled mind is often a closed one.
