This superlative of yours would be quite useless in proving the existence
of God. For example, when we speak of terrestrial intelligence, man
is the superlative. But quite obviously, we didn't create other

Similarly, there might be creatures who are the most intelligent in
the universe, but that has no relevance to the existence of God.

Of course, there is also the possibility that intelligence is
not a quantity that is totally ordered. In this case, you
can have comparatives without any superlative.
