"I thought it was YOU who first said that hands meant intelligence. How could my pointing out that you said that, possibly make ME a creationist?"
When you say: "To take your comment once step further, perhaps the intelligence that hand bestowed is still there also?"
You do realise that the ancestors of dolphins never had hands - they had paws.
"You haven't convinced me of the impossibility of dolphin intelligence being beyond human intelligence. I just thing that anyone must be pretty darned arrogant, who won't even admit that a being which evolved tens of millions of years before we came down from the treetops even MIGHT be more intelligent than we are."
Just the little details that there's very little evidence of any high intelligence; even the tests for dolphin self-awareness are inconclusive. And then there's the structure of their brains and the fact that their large brains are used for signal processing sonar, not any significant intelligence.
"But you've obviously made your mind up and are too intellectually inflexible to even consider the possibility as far as I can see. So no point continuing this discussion."
Just because I don't agree with the reality of your fantasy dolphins? You are on the wrong forum to promote your fantasy novel.
