    Not even close and I consider the entire notion of God silly, naive and illogical in the extreme....

    Me too. Almost as silly, naive, and illogical as believing that intelligence came about from something besides intelligence.

    yet, one idea or the other must be true.

    I don't know if it's really silly or what have you. I can understand how some may draw the conclusion. There's of course sociological impacts and such as well for being brought up religious and taught it from an early age. In the end, I can see why people want there to be a god, how we could maybe even be better off in some aspects if there were a god. There's just no evidence for one nor anything in nature which would demand one.

    It is not necessary for the intelligent person to believe in any deity in order to do the right thing, just as it is not necessary to retain any conception of right or wrong in order to comprehend with absolute clarity the existence of G-d. The "fire and brimstone' stuff is just a device contrived for the not so intelligent, but nevertheless quite numerous, dunderheads among us who lack the necessary prefrontal connections to guide their behavior by means of rational perception and conscientious empathy. Primal fear of the unknown must be evoked in order to persuade the dunderheads to behave in a civil manner. This has less to do with the actual existence of G-d as it does with the need to maintain social order.

    The "notion of God" is not so much silly as it is a profound impediment to the comprehension of G-d.

    G-d cannot be comprehended conceptually. G-d is only comprehensible through total subjectivity (which is not to say "God is subjective").

    Not really... intelligence could evolve as species learn how to better adapt. Nothing silly, naive or illogical about that at all...
