I am a very strong critic of Evolution....


You're confusing "strong" with "loud". Your "arguments" are somewhere between weak and non-existent. A loud "critic", like you, just yells, "No! No! No!" without ever explaining why not. That isn't even real criticism.

Just wait for my science article to be summitted to science journal.


Yes, we're waiting for that to happen. Why has that not happened?

I did submit but they did not get it.


You said, in Message 128, "Just wait for my science article to be summitted to science journal."

Why should I wait for something that you already did? Get your story straight.

I am not an ordinary scientist, I discovered intelligence and non-intelligence!


You've certainly demonstrated non-intelligence but it dates back to pond-scum, so you couldn't have invented it. Did you invent arrogance too?

You must first define "intelligence"...


Let's start out very simple: "Intelligence is the ability to learn."

MrIntelligentDesign writes:

... and why you use that definition in Biology.


Let's just use the same definition everywhere.

MrIntelligentDesign writes:

Support that definition with experiment...


It's supported by observation. Chimps use twigs to fish for ants and termites. They learn that stripping the leaves off makes a more efficient tool.

... and it is so easy to follow.


Are you following so far?

MrIntelligentDesign writes:

OK, do you really accept that your definition of intelligence is universal and correct?


I didn't say it was either universal or correct. I suggested it as a starting point.

MrIntelligentDesign writes:

Let us test that, answer these questions from your definition of intelligence.
Is biological cell intelligently designed or not?


You're jumping way too far ahead. We can't discuss whether or not something "is" intelligently designed until we can agree on what "intelligence" and "design" mean.

If you don't like my definition, suggest improvements.

The universe had a beginning. Most scientists today agree with that. As such, space, time and matter/energy all had a beginning.
There's a difference between "a" beginning and "the" beginning. There might have been many beginnings.
WookieB writes:
So the reasoning is that whatever creates the universe would be, among other things, spaceless, timeless and immaterial.
I don't see how that follows. Your logic seems to be: Premise 1, Premise 2, therefore God.
