Sure looks that way, since most everything and most every species is set up to be at cross purposes to and with one another. And yes, we are also artificial intelligence.

You always put 'del if u wish' at the end. It almost seems like an apology. No, you're not always the most agreeable smooth-talker but none of us are. Discussion of opinion (& fact) are rarely unruffled & we already know we 'can' delete.
It is quite strange here as one would think delving into this would be so complicated. But it gets simple when you ask that Atheist vs. Believer question of creation. But it did hit me that I have a box with fancy rocks in it -- have I created??
Sure, you have 'created' a box of rocks.... now create those rocks from nothing and you are really creating, for now your just rearranging the 'furniture' :)
Right on -- except I created the arrangement. And all matter and energy are just different forms of arrangement - same elements. I hope you do not think I tricked you into that.
When we can create matter and energy from nothing, that's when we can disprove a Creator (who did do that)! :)
Wait a second that is backwards. All our creation would prove is that it is created. I think the God concept gives us ability to act like God. Why not if God is in each of us.
1 Corinthians 13:12King James Version (KJV)
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
We are 'images' not replicas, 'in part', not 'fullness' :)
These hundreds of versions. Is it really translated: Part of God, Part of us is God, Part of God is us?
God is love - all the love or just some? If I love am I God or just a part of the love which is God? AI?
We indeed 'see thru a glass, darkly' UNTIL we realize who & what we are. No one gets that thru religion, but religions cause us to ask spiritual questions. Eventually, we 'get it' or we don't - doesn't matter, cuz there are no rejected defects.
No, we're not artificially created - it was a long, slow process that started with a THOUGHT. Our consciousness & bodies BOTH are made out of energy. Who created the creator? What came 1st, the chicken or the egg? Most atheists believe nothing.
No matter how plausible that sounds, it's still a wild and unscientific extrapolation. I would say try to define consciousness versus intelligence first.
Its becoming more scientific by the day; and so is consciousness - do a search. Since intelligence is part of consciousness I'm not sure why you need a definition between them. A mind is a mind and it naturally thinks.
Earth isn't a planet? I've only heard that from conspiracy theorists - you're not a flat-earther, are you Eric? LoL! I agree, we're not experiments nor AI. That doesn't mean that our existence isn't an exceptional mystery yet to be unraveled. :)
America is FOCUSED on politics at the moment & very few of us are happy about it - plus ALL of us are RIGHT! If we would stop focusing so much diverse & opposing attention to it, the country would balance itself out. Easier said than done, Lo
