But, you are so wrong it defies logic. The diaphragm contracts and expands the lungs. Your "belief" has nothing to do with the truth, but you're allowed to believe anything you want, I guess. If the diaphragm were nothing but a membrane, you'd be right (and there would be something else helping us breathe. But you're not right, the diaphragm is a muscle, and it contracts. Try holding your breath steady next time you hiccup (that's a spasm of your diaphragm).

The diaphragm can be consciously moved down to begin inhalation, but the feedback loop (seeing the diaphragm move) isn't there. It's like blinking - you do it all the time unconsciously, and you can consciously override it.
