Turn Darwinian evolution upside down, and you’ll get a theory that best explains the data we have. Based on our uniform experience the existing highest form of intelligence is human intelligence.
We have no verifiable evidence that non-human intelligence superior to human intelligence exists, or that human intelligence is the product of a lower form of non-human intelligence.
Without any verifiable evidence that human intelligence cannot exist prior to the universe, and generate the cosmic system for the production of human intelligence in its own image, there is no reason to believe in the origin of the universe and life from nonlife. Put simply, the immortality of human intelligence has never been falsified, and the principle of its immortality remains valid until human intelligence exists.
