Re: If Intelligence Exists....

Good point. The inference is on a Creator, and we would like for such a Being(if it exists) to be well qualified in order to create a universe and be capable of knowing every living thing intimately. Infinity is a preferred characteristic of such a Being.

It is a Catholic teaching that angels are beings of pure intellect.
While humans through time develop our intellect, Angels are created with a fully developed mind. It is debated that this is one reason Lucifer's sin was so grave, he was fully cognizant of his choice to rebel against God.
