In New Scientist: Creationists Declare War Over The Brain

Here is the basic question: Is there a distinction between mind and body?

If there is, then it's possible that we were created (or "intelligently designed") and that the Flying Spaghetti Monster exists.

If there's not a distinction - i.e., the mind is a product of the brain or some other physical processes - then we have nobody but ourselves to blame.
