Yep, just like global warming. If it gets colder, that proof of global warming, if it gets warmer, that proof of global warming, if temperatures neither rise nor fall, case closed for proof of AWG,, climate change, global warming, the consensus is in..everything is proof.
Yep, big brain, little brain, no change, all change, all proof of evolution.

Lol... what an odd response. Who even raised any of this as "proof" of anything? I understand that not all of us have time to actually read and understand the posts we respond to, but sometimes it actually helps to make time.
If I wanted to talk about "proof" I'd be chatting up endogenous retroviruses, or the demonstrated increase in genetic information created by gene duplication, or ring species. But that was not the purpose of this post.
The purpose was to debunk a common false caricature of evolution as a progressive process that inexorably proceeds from simple to complex. It's not.
The change in brain size either way is evolution. And changes in brains even without changes in their size are evolution. The evolutionary difference between a horse and a zebra (which many creationists accept as having occurred) is far greater than the evolutionary difference between humans and chimpanzees.
Evolution does not take place according to some creationist caricature. It instead proceeds according to invariant natural law.
