Who's to say it can't have evolved elsewhere... And I'm not talking about aliens either.. there's a universe of endless space and endless time out there with absolutely limitless possibilities. There's no rule that says conciousness can only form from organic matter.
I have no doubt in my mind that there are higher forms of intelligence out there, maybe existing between dimensions. It's just impossible for them not to exist if we can exist.
I just think we can't comprehend their existence..The same way ants can't comprehend our existence and bacteria can't comprehend an ant's existence and singlecelled organisms can't comprehend bacteria and so on all the way down to sub atomic particles and beyond.
And let me guess: You think that these esoteric quasi-theoretical super-entities are in fact the god or gods from the particular religious tradition in which you were raised.
