Who ever said anything about INTELLIGENCE? Again, you are putting words in people's mouth.

Here:

Insects may have consciousness and could even be able to count, claim experts:

Insects with minuscule brains may be as intelligent as much bigger animals and may even have consciousness, it was claimed today.

Having a brain the size of a pinhead does not necessarily make you less bright, say researchers.

Computer simulations show that consciousness could be generated in neural circuits tiny enough to fit into an insect's brain, according to the scientists at Queen Mary, University of London and Cambridge University.

Ummm....insects don't have a brain. they have a nervous sytem and that is all...

yes, we know insects can measure. that is not intelligence.

do you realize that you just said insects may be as intelligent as much larger animals after asking "who said anything about intelligence?"

No. We never mentioned intelligence, but you like to put words in our mouths so I found a link that proves your statement wrong, that insects don't have intelligence, since you brought it up.

So what about this quote of yours?:

"Insects with minuscule brains may be as intelligent as much bigger animals and may even have consciousness, it was claimed today."

must I once again chime in to this argument? yes I must.

Evolution and Creation are 'both' true. First there was Creation and then everything evolved from there.

Now. Simple to understand isn't it?

The "Divine' spark which was given to humanity has a well documented evolutionary path. Yet first came 'the spark' of conscious awareness' in order for Mankind to rise above the animal instinctive impulses and be self conscious..........with the abilty to preface in speach the "I"
I think.
I do are do not like this.
I seek to make this a better world.

CABISH?

now the hoodmeisters such as Alex Jones will take former posts by Stellar KNight in this thread where he set the stage in a boxing ring....
"and in this corner it is Creao the Creationists"
and in the other corner EVO the evolutionist!"
lol
and ole Alex the rip off artist of others research actually went on the road to Florida in an RV and set the stage like a boxin match with opposing parties being
"In this corner the new world order"
and in this corner those who love liberty.
or something to that effect.

And in a most profound Biblical sense. In the New Testament one finds The Christ saying.."I am the I Am'
This divine spark of "I" when we speak is not evolutionary rather poignantly both purposely and instuctionally brought to humankind or humanity in a most interesting way.

As a gift.

Only man can say " I" in fact only we can speak to say I to begin with.
And where does the gift of speech derive its origen?

The Gospel of John Chapter 1.

"In the beggining was the word and the word was God and the word was with God. So it was in the Beginning

Clearly , the beginning was of divine origen. It's evolution our human journey from there proves we evolve as well.
The question today since the advent of the machine and the materialistic conception of the world is are we 'evolving' or de vovling?

The materialistic conception of the world was heralded in in through the Church Synod Constandinople 869 ad.

where mankinds 'spiritual' component was struck from him by a stroke of the pen.

You spelled Capish wrong.

No, sorry dude, but creation is a non-starter. It doesn't fit into what we know from science.

There is no creator.....

I was responding to xxxoooxxx's comment about awareness. We never mentioned anything about intelligence until you brought it up. What's wrong with you? I think you are the one who had too much to drink.

No, no. He spelled it right. Capish is for those times that you don't feel like going the full Batman with your cape. He is running around in his room with a short foot and a half to two foot cape.

Why he wanted to get that point across to us I don't know.
