Daffy here you clearly stated mouth to mouth yet your scripture was breath to nostril. Do you know the difference between a mouth and nose?

Wow just wow.

More than Myths. Do you think CPR is a myth?
Have you ever been trained or given CPR?
Did you know the first example of mouth to mouth resuscitation occurred in the bible?
You probably don’t know much about fire science. But the first recorded backdraft also is recorded in the bible that resulted in fatalities.
Genealogy, songs, poems, history, military tactics that are still taught in West Point are in the bible.

I don't believe in the absolute infallibility of numbers. I don't run out of gas. Not after a couple of times a very long time ago.
Actually, all thinking, even yours, started off as a bunch of random chemicals and electrical impulses. Our brains even have to learn how to move all of our muscles, that's why infants often appear to move about randomly, it's the brain learning what impulses accomplish which movements. Even the regulation of the heart and lungs has to be learned, but due to the simplicity of those communications it is learned very quickly. The brain is a learning engine, not a predefined set of instructions, there is no JMP FFFF op code.

Well I certainly never did open heart massage but have done CPR many times and once to a baby. Your partner in crime claims the bible is all myth. Well thousands of years before CPR which includes mouth to mouth and mouth to nose resuscitation.
We find an example of a life being started by mouth to nose resuscitation which is a recognized method in the medical rescue community.
Genesis 2:7
King James Version (KJV)
7. "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."
"Mouth to nose" would never work for CPR. Also you are making excuses for your abiogenesis myth, it doesn't say CPR and it talks about two unproven things.

Ah yes, sad illness, one of many genetic diseases. It's rather ironic about how much we know about the brain, the brain is almost fully understood, and way simpler than we had originally thought. The problem is getting inorganic processors to behave like organic processes, if we could accomplish that then we could make true artificial intelligence.

There has to be a predefined code before it even starts to learn. That external stimulus has to be routed the right ways.

Something happened, we are here! Since there is zero evidence for a god, we look were there is at least some evidence.

How many times has some kid died because parent refused medical help, instead they tried to pray the sickness away?

I'll stick with science, it has gotten us to the edge of our solar system. Religion has taken us to believers flying planes into building, blowing each other up and murdering doctors they don't like.

Returning to base.
We have a young man in the neighborhood, who works for a different law enforcement group every month or so. His parents bought him an old scanner/radio, a nice looking badge, a toy night stick, an officer's hat, and a bright orange vest.

Often he would direct traffic in the neighborhood, threaten to write you up for some violation, but always let you off with a bit of a warning. Yeah, he heads back to the HQ every night, too.

Well, the overall pattern is genetic. The specifics are determined by diffusion of the growth chemicals that neurons follow. There are several stages where connections are severed if they have not been used sufficiently. So no, there is NOT predefined code: at first it is all hardware, but that hardware changes over time.
