    Hey Jack, Good to see you!

    I completely agree, God said, we are created to know he is God. That statement says a lot about the minds of men and likewise their minds in terms of rebellion.

    Absolutely, we are born with intelligence.

    Great question!

    God Bless You,

    Guess it depends upon how intelligence is evaluated or measured.   A crow is an intelligent bird.  They've been known to use a twig as a tool to get something they can't reached with their beaks.   A chicken has low intelligence, and will try to get through a chicken wire fence when all it has to do is walk five feet or so and go around the end of the fence.

    I'm not a fan of IQ tests.   I can recall doing a few 'self-evaluative IQ tests and coming up with answers ranging from as low as 96 to as high as 106.  (The average IQ is supposedly 100)    And as for people who get really high scores.  Well, it could mean they're really intelligent.  It could also mean they're familiar with IQ tests and have had a lot of practice doing them.

    But don't knock the accumulation of knowledge.   Knowledge applied well is a sign on intelligence afterall.

    What a great question!  Not only do I believe we are born with intelligence for most of the reasons already stated, I believe we are born with superior intellect that if properly nurtured allows us to do amazing things.

    I also believe that the manner in which our modern society teaches & trains stifles much of our creativity and potential, in effect, dumbing us down. 

    That is what has brought us to the economic crisis we face in a country run by crooks.

    Instead of teaching future generations what we think we know, we should teach them how to use their minds and think for themselves.

    We are born not with intelligence but with the potential to posess intelligence. It is what we do with our minds that makes the difference. I for one have interacted with people who actually couln't outsmart a chicken. And as far as civilization goes, perhaps that is a sign of our stupidity becuase it has only been as a society that we've killed millions of one another. Or perhaps its the fact that we refuse to agree to disagree. Either way, we view ourselves as being the most intelligent but who are we to make that decision?
