Complex intelligence is only a bi-product of a complex brain, so a complex intelligence existing without a biological brain doesn't make much sense.
Expecting anyone to believe there is a complex intelligence that didn't come from a brain, is like expecting someone to believe you have a wooden chair that didn't come from a tree. I haven't seen any examples of any wood that didn't come from a tree, so it's not logical to assume that what the person is saying is true. There is no evidence that complex intelligence can operate without a brain, so to believe it is equally as foolish.

How did life start? Well, the early pre-biotic earth was filled with organic molecules (which are quite common in space), the building blocks of life. The pre-biotic environment contained many simple fatty acids, under a range of PH they spontaneously form stable vesicles. With naturally occurring simple fatty acids, we can have a vesicle that can spontaneously grow from consumption and divide. The pre-biotic environment contained hundreds of different types of nucleotides, all it took was one to polymerize, they can replicate themselves.
Continued: So, so far we have lipid vesicles that can grow and divide, and nucleotide polymers that can self replicate all on their own, but how does it become life? Well fatty acid vesicles are permeable to nucleotide monomers, but not polymers. Once polymerization occurs within the vesicle, the polymer gets trapped! In the ocean they will encounter convection currents. A vesicle with more polymer, through simple thermodynamics will steal lipids from a vesicle with less polymer, this is the origin of competition. A Vesicle that contains polymer can replicate, grow and divide faster therefore dominating the population. Self polymerizing molecules will kick off evolution, and we see things like complex sexual reproduction arise, basically where the fun begins ;)

God didn't create the universe. The conservation of energy states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, and every affect has an equal and opposite effect. Most cosmologists agree that the total energy of the universe = 0. The negative (-) energy of gravity balances out the positive (+) energy of matter exactly. How can a creator create something that cannot be created and that = 0?

You can have an account with $0.00 in it, or you can deposit $5 into an account with a -$5.00 balance, either way at the end of the day your account will have $0.00. If energy has always, does, and will always = 0 then the idea of a "creator" makes no sense. The Big Bang was most likely simply just a transition of one form of total energy 0 to another form of total energy 0, driven by the quantum vacuum.
