A child can have a complete understanding of colours yet be a retard when it comes to science. So what a child (or even an adult) 'sees' is not distinctions between the wavelengths etc. of photons.

What do you even mean by "a complete understanding of colours"? The child may be able to see all the colours that a typical person sees (ie, ROYGBIV), but understanding has to do with concepts, not percepts, which in turn are mainly a function of wavelength (with some distortions possible, due to the colour optical illusions already discussed.

You seem to think that anything claimed by a physicalist must be wrong, but the opposite of physicalist is religious fantasist!
