"... I am intellectually convinced that only an Intelligence (i.e., God) could have created intelligence,..."
The logical error in that quote should be obvious -- but I am wondering how it could be missed. If it were true that intelligence could not exist unless it pre-existed itself to create itself, then there wouldn't be any intelligence. Fortunately, intelligence does exist -- which means that it could not have created itself.
Intelligence is real, God is fiction.
