    Is it the nature of intelligence to create intelligence? Is creating intelligence an artifact of intelligence?

    Creating intelligence is a type of radical rebranding for the Democrat party. It could take generations to gain traction.

    That is a very good question. In the Bible, it says that God created mankind in His Image. That thing itself could explain why God created mankind. He had to, as it was an instinct He had to follow.

    But then, that brings up the question that if God had to create mankind because intelligence mandates that intelligent things create other intelligent things, does that mean that instinct is greater than God?

    I hear what y'r saying...but I think of it in slightly different terms.

    Sometimes something just "is". even for God.

    It's a "universal truth".

    Like you can't have a front without a back.

    I don't tend to think of it as "greater" than God...rather...just the way it is.

    No. I don’t think it does.

    Not as long as we worship the creator instead of what he created.

    Trick question.
    Humans have no intelligence.
    An infant race with no real grasp of consciousness or understanding of what qualifies as sentient. Facing the infinite under the delusion of a false sense if self importance. Unable with limited senses to truly perceive the Universe let alone understand it or ourselves.

    In other words...

    Above my pay grade.

    And yet we are obsessed with creating smart things.
