There's just no evidence for one nor anything in nature which would demand one.
    I was trying to invoke a reaction more than anything. Agreed. The "need" for their to be a God and salvation along with everlasting life is very comforting ideas and I can also see why so many people believe. After being indoctrinated from birth most can't see any other way of thinking.

    It's possible, of course, that intelligence simply developed all on its own.

    Or, it's possible that intelligence created intelligence.

    There is no proof of either one, other than that there is no third alternative.

    and the general rule is that like begets like.

    G-d cannot be comprehended conceptually. G-d is only comprehensible through total subjectivity (which is not to say "God is subjective").
    The need to explain existence with God is no more true than the need of the Greeks to explain volcanic eruption with Hades...

    By that idea then life evolved just as life does in the womb and as intelligence evolves in the person from a single cell to a multi cell and fully functioning brain... like begets like is right.

    yes, just like in the womb, according to a plan.

    Then, there is the question of how life began in the first place. Anyone have a definitive answer to that one?

    What plan? A sperm can meet an egg for any number of unplanned reasons. What is important is the result. Life. Life that evolves from an unthinking cellular blob to an intelligent being capable of convoluting a simple thing into a search for meaning.

    No idea how life began in the first place... it may very well have been God, but I doubt it.

    The plan is coded in the DNA. The baby doesn't just develop at random, but according to a very specific blueprint encoded in the genes.

    That doesn't prove that god exists.

    Nothing proves that god exists, nor that god doesn't exist.

    The DNA code is the result of evolution, or the DNA code was deliberately developed through evolution. Man was created, or just happened. Intelligence was begotten by intelligence, or just developed on its own.

    Or, there is a third alternative after all: intelligence has always existed.

    Why can't intelligence result from non intelligence?
