info.gif Argument from Mind: An argument for God’s existence that seeks to show that theism is the best explanation for conscious minds. For example, J.P. Moreland argues as follows: "Even if [naturalistic] evolutionary theory is someday able to adequately explain the origins of the human brain, it will remain fundamentally unable to explain the existence of the human mind..." since " is hard to see how human minds could result from the rearrangement of brute matter. It is much easier to see how a Conscious Being could produce the finite conscious minds we possess."
