What do you believe about how life arose in the universe? Did it always exists, is it the product of intellect, did it arise naturally(meaning without the aid of intellect)?

Meaning through undirected processes? I'll bite. How do you think your life-creating-intellect arose? Through undirected processes or with the aid of an intellect?

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

I don't know how it arose(I'm making a statement about my knowledge). I suspect intellect has always been part of reality(I'm making a statement about my beliefs).

God dumped his seed in the sock of life which he then forgot in the bottom of the hamper of Earth.

The processes ongoing in "intellect" (using YOUR argument from your prior thread, the ONLY ones we know about) require an intellectual *change* from moment "A" to moment "B". If you posit *eternal intellect* you must also posit eternal time. The only way we are aware of it, is space-time. Thus you deity requires an environment to operate in, consisting of space-time. Care to explain how your deity created the "priors" that are required for it's own activity ?

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.
