Do you believe that in this modern world, still the most incredible computer is still the brain? Why?

The brain is still the best compared to the most advanced computer ever made by human. Computer may compute too fast and precise but then all it can do is base on what program its being instructed by the programmers behind that master piece. Our mind is so powerful in a simple calculation, it can be compared to 1680000 MHz Intel Pentium processor. Unlike computers, it can perform several task that cannot matched by any super computers. http://library.thinkquest.org/C001501/the_saga/compare.htm

Yes i do think the brain is the most complex and incredible computer still today. The computer functions with data and numbers. The human brain can also interpret those, but also has the logical, rational quality that the computer will never have, and that is what makes us human beings, compared to dogs let's say. They don't reason, they don't even think apparently.

Yes it is! I like biology, and all the many designs we see around us.. amazing, all of them!

Yes I agree that our personal computor is incredible. The only problem is, it does not have a mouse to operate the system. If I get annoyed & frustrated with my mechanical computor, I can take it out on the poor mouse, as it's easier to replace than the computor. However, if I get annoyed with my own personal brain computor, what can I do without the mouse? Should I bang my head against the wall? Put my head in a bucket of water? Or maybe I should recite to myself over & over 20 times. "Patience... Patience" What do you suggest?

You're doing great. Yes, patience is the answer. And a bucket of water -- cold water. It should cool down your brain/motherboard. :-)

The brain is a very incredible organ .. but sadly more and more folks rely on 'computerised' brains and not their own brains .. Far too many folks can't even be bothered to add simple amounts together they spend more time getting out a calculator and letting the calculators 'brain' work it out for them .. or they really on gadgets and gizmo's to tell them where to go or when to go .. Come on folks we already have the finest gadget and gizmo in the world being carried around with us all the time .. OUR OWN BRAIN !! Use it or lose it .. !

Yes i can believe it, and why i can is because there is nothing that can compare to the human brain,because it thinks for its self and machines has to be programed..Every machines in times past or in the future will always have to be programed by the human brain...It would be impossible to invent a machine that could think for itsself without the assitance of the human brain..

Of course it is. How many computers can be breathing,keeping a heart going,controlling circulation, etc., smoking, reading and answering questions here all at the same time. It's free and recharching costs nothing and is enjoyable. It also allows imaginary things to happen, no computer will ever be better then the brain.

Yes, since the brain is able to see things in different contexts and react to them accordingly. It can't store as much information, or even process it as fast, but it can think sensibly about what to do with it.

We are in this world and not of this world. We get downloads from our creator. Incrediable is all around us and some not evident. Our brains are capable of so much more that we ever access. I think as time goes on being more natual will finally be acknowledged and preserved. Hopefully before it is too late and must be recreated. Wonder what results that will bring.

Yes, I believe that the brain is the most powerful processing center that we have, although maybe computers might rank a poor second. Our brains are capable of reasoning, like a computer in some ways. What the brain doesn't have in it's logical reasoning system is weighing the outcome of thought with compassion in mind. Sometimes when we make a decision it's not always based 100% on facts, but on subliminal clues, and other facts that play into the final decision we make. Computers only know what we program into it, the human brain knows much more about other factors that cannot be programmed in to reach a compassionate, fair, final result.

As of this time, no computer can equal the function of the human brain. Computer don't have the ability to learn by itself unlike humans. Computer can only process datas fed into them the way they were programed. In reality, still we canot compare computers to human. It's still a long long way.
