The mystery surrounding the nature and origin of consciousness is the last toehold that non-rational thinkers have in the debate about human origins. If you accept everything that is known about science in general and evolution in particular, we are still left without a broadly accepted answer in the scientific community. And this leaves lots of room for illogical religious assertion. I have written a paper which places the origin of consciousness squarely within modern evolutionary theory as articulated by Dawkins and others. I am looking for a Phd or doctoral student in evolutionary biology or psychology willing to provide feedback on this paper.

Hi Mark:  I am a practicing cognitive therapist in private practice.  I am very interested in the origin of consciousness, etc.  I would like to read your work.

I'd like to see this discussed. I enjoy seeing the cracks and crevices, where icky things hide, sealed up.
