I think its time we looked at ourselves instead of giving way to a "higher intelligence" belief.
If God created us would it not be possible that his intellect was passed on, otherwise we would be like a cow in a field, only have products from the flesh and you know when the Bible speaks of the “flesh,” it is often referring to our natural sin tendencies.
We are all born with a sin nature (Romans 5:12). Our natural predilection is to please ourselves any way we see fit. We can be trained to behave in more socially acceptable ways and even find enjoyment in being kind to others. However, without the power of God, we remain self-centred. We do what we do, even good things, because we receive some selfish payoff.
Anything not done from faith or love for God—any deed not empowered by the Holy Spirit—is a “work of the flesh” (Romans 8:8; 14:23).
