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.

interesting article...never really question whether they were aware or not...it has always seemed obvious that there's an inherent consciousness of some sort, in all living creatures...
The real mystery to me, is why there would be any question of them being conscious in the first place.(?)lol

or would indoctrinated be the correct word...
So your argument is that is not by design... but that it's a random combination of events that produce structure. It has no intelligence, but it produces intelligence. It has no form but it produces form.It has no cause but it produces cause...

That it creates itself out of nothing.

And if you can buy that...I have some ocean front property in Arizona that you might be interested in.

The truth is,you have no proof...only a claim of proof. On the other hand, I have a whole universe full of proof...you literally have nothing...lol

what is that proof of yours? wouldn't the universe really be proof of the scientifically learned ways that it formed? it certainly has zero proof of any intellid=gent creator.

in fact, as I clearly and truthfully stated, there is tons of evidence to suggest that yes, tht is just the ways our world formed and evolved.

Speaking of blind people..

A pastor, a doctor, and an engineer were playing golf. ahead of them was a group that was taking forever and didn''t seem to know what they were doing.

the ranger came by and the three asked about the group ahead. the ranger told them it was a group of firefighters that had lost their sight fighting a fire at their clubhouse, so they let them play for free...

the pastor said "i willl pray for those brave men."

the doctor said " I'll have my opthemologist friend see if he can help them."

the engineer said "can't they play at night?"

are you suggesting that self proclaimed monkeys, have the ability to distinguished between truth and fiction?

After all, you are only monkeys.

I really don't think that it would be wise, for people to listen to monkeys on such profound issues, such as the creation of the universe and concepts of God...

Do you?

It's true.
I found it on several sites.
From wiki:
Ribs
There have appeared claims that human ribs could regenerate if the periosteum, the membrane surrounding the rib, were left intact. In one study rib material was used for skull reconstruction and all 12 patients had complete regeneration of the resected rib.[41]
I'm as surprised as you.
Both that ribs can grow back and that Lango was right about something.
I don't know which is more shocking.
I saw that too, but I could find no cases where it actually happened. Also it would seem that something would be needed to keep the ribs shape. This sort of claim also appears to be true for almost any bone.

No, monkeys are atotally different species from homo sapiens and they do not have the intelligence level that we do.

these are pretty basic facts. why don't you know them?
