Um... why? I think they're both pointing to the same use of the mind to lead the body. If I'm wrong about that, then yes, there's something to learn.

Have you ever been pushed by a car? If so, you would know, that this has nothing in common with two living beings, pushing each other.
True enough. My point for Chris H was that even in the simplest case--pushing a dead weight on wheels--you don't want to use his preferred structure. You'd never push a car with absolutely straight arms. So even in the simplest case, his block man model fails.

Evolution doesn't prove God doesn't exist, any more than hammers prove carpenters don't exist.
