A: A critical function of our brain is to sort out what we should remember and not remember. God designed our brains so we can focus on the important things and not get lost in insignificant details.
Memories are believed to go from short- to long-term memory by reinforcement. Initially, the synapses involved in a memory trace are very weak. However, with repetition or a link to strong emotions, the connections become stronger and stronger.
God designed the brain’s synapses to help us by literally reinforcing our memories when we meditate on truly important things. What are you remembering?

The author of this week’s Q&A, Dr. David Dewitt, explores the supposed connection between apes and humans, including similarities in DNA and skull sizes, as well as considering the various supposed apeman discoveries.
Sizeable Sturgeons Set Evolutionary Speed Records? Are sturgeons living fossils or evolutionary fast-trackers? A new study proposes that these fish are evidence of rapid, observable evolution. But observable variation within a kind does not add new genetic information and is not evidence of molecules-to-man evolution.
Show and Tell: What Can Chimps Tell Us? Many evolutionary linguists believe a child learning to talk recapitulates the evolutionary steps that ape-like ancestors trod as they learned to speak and think abstractly. But only humans, created in God's image, are capable of communicating unique and creative abstract thoughts with language.
Cousin Achilles: The Little Primate That Could: Ten years of analysis of the tiny primate dubbed A. achilles has led some evolutionary researchers to conclude this animal is a missing link between two different types of primates. But this study is really a marvelous example of comparative anatomy, showing variation within a species. This prompts the question “what was it?” not “what was it becoming?”
Arguments Christians Shouldn’t Use
