Another thing:

The theists stated that the large gap in mental capabilities between us and other animals was a reason for believing in god. How much do we know about the earlier hominids in terms of brain capacity? I am thinking of Homo Erectus, Homo Habilis and so on. Presumably they were much closer to us in that respect? So I would think the gap is not so big after all. Or at least it is bridged by other (now extinct) species.
