the first article cites no evidence. its some unscientific hypothesis where its claimed that the ape men who started chewing on bones for the high calorie meat corresponded with larger brain size.I really shouldn't have to do research for you. There are countless articles and studies you can find.
"As we got more [meat], our guts shrank because we didn't need a giant vegetable processor any more. Our bodies could spend more energy on other things like building a bigger brain."
thats a lousy conclusion. why wouldnt large cats evolve into the thundercats, then? plenty of meat in their diet. second problem is that the expenditure of energy to hunt isnt economical at all when the failure rate (going with your darwin theory) of hunting was high. it would pay to eat fruits and vegetables and save the energy. following traditional routes like elephants, early man (your theory) shouldve had plenty of food-- ill grant you lower caloric in content-- but plenty of extra time to begin thinking. remember, its the early agricultural revolution that set man (sort of mainstream theory) free from worrying about his next meal and developing art, writing, music, and other pastimes through to innovation.
by the way, brain size has nothing at all to do with brain function. crows are very intelligent and have a proverbial bird brain. mainstream scientists say theyre about as intelligent as chimps.
the second article is the same person saying the same crap to a harvard audience. a big worded theory with no beef.
so wheels are a big deal for you, but screws, drill bits, glass blocks, and springs arent. with arguments like yours, i must be a real git to not have been won over yet.I suppose that's interesting. But unless they found a giant wheel I'm not really impressed. They say the wheel was invented in 3500BC. And it's one of the critical inventions of human history.
