well apparently you are an inanimate object and have no intelligence, because you are part of the Universe, and a process of the Universe.( by the theory of evolution)
your logic is faulty.

i am a living, breathing thing, which we know are capable of intelligence. inanimate objects are not. because i am part of a larger inanimate object does not give that object intelligence.

Do your toenail clippings have intelligence? no.

you do not get to make up stuff and say that is a fact...

why isn't there even one shred of evidence that even hints at the existence of any gods? not even one? why is that?
Do You Capitalize the Word "God"?

One of the most common questions people ask about religious words is whether to capitalize the word “god.”

The name of any specific deity is capitalized just like any other name, so when “God” is used to refer to “the one God,”(in other words, in any monotheistic religion) it is capitalized.
For example, you’d capitalize “God” in this sentence:

Some Christians give thanks to God before every meal.

When referring to gods in general, however, or using the word "god" descriptively, keep it lowercase:

The Romans believed a god named Jupiter ruled the heavens.
The Greek gods were always causing trouble for humans.
The same rule holds true for Yahweh, Allah, Zeus, and the names of gods in other religions. They are capitalized.

Oh!
You are forgetting the words, " image and likeness".
Ants or other creations, except humans are not created in the image and likeness of God.

oh that's right hominids on the Earth at the same time as humans, but your god didn't create them...hmmm

Were they created by the other gods that your jealous god mentioned ?

I'm not trying to insult anyone. don't expect me to refer to your god as divine just because you believe he is.

<quoted text>the evidence points to hominids branching off the great apes line 9 or both of us branching off a common line, to be more correct.)

but it is a fact that humans did not come from two created beings, and certainly not two genetically identical beings, both are physically impossible...we know that didn't happen.
Ya much more likely that we came from one single cell, a self life generating cell. A cell that self life generated when all there was on the planet was rocks and rain.

Wouldn't assuming to know why other people do things be considered a tad smug. why should anyone waste their time with someone like that? would you?

That's incorrect. When talking of an omni point God as in the one in the Bible or Quran or Torah then God should be capitalized.

Look it up you'll see.

<quoted text>what question did you ask me?
if it took this long for stars to create and planets to amass enough heavy metals to be minable and refinable..why would you think there are so many more advanced civilizations than us?
please elaborate on your incredibly vague answer of "experience"...
Does not matter, the human mind is already made its decision. Creation or evolution, two choices....pretty sad. If you knew of a third choice could you accept it....Does your mind have the capability to handle the truth? Most humans do not. It takes comprehension beyond current human levels.Reading and thought are tied together.Regurgitating info you hear or read is natural, being able to think beyond that is exceptional.

No, saying i can't have intelligence because i am part of the universe is making stuff up./

saying that because living beings in the universe have intelligence means the universe has intelligence is making stuff up.
inanimate objects do not have intelligence.

Actually, the theory of evolution in no way, shape, or form attempts to discuss how life came about.

i would be open to any idea about how life started if you had something to back it up with...
