Dawkins spoke of space aliens as if he was not aware that the space alien hypothesis only kicks the can down the road one block and does not solve the basic problem
If God is merely a hypothetical entity, then at least he is among good company with extraterrestrial intelligence, though the former makes a much better case. ;)
In any case, intelligent life existed somewhere prior to even microbial life, according to your citation of Dawkins, right?
To: Das Outsider
In any rational scheme of things, intelligence has to exist FIRST and create biology; the opposite, i.e. having biology arise from dust via a sequence of trillions of zero-probability events by accident (evolution), has been disproven repeatedly.
