Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan (1897-1920) credited his substantial mathematical capabilities to divinity: "An equation for me has no meaning unless it expresses a thought of God." Profound x infinity!
I do believe in some manner Ramanujan was correct, about intellect being a gift from God. Humans, imperfect creatures, what we do with the gift is where the pedal meets the metal. Intercontinental ballistic missiles, weapons of mass destruction, war machines, devices of terrorism and a lot more tell me man has perverted God’s wisdom or is taking lessons from someone else. The someone else being evil, aka Satan.
As artificial intelligence takes over more of man's existence, the artificial – not God – instructs us. I suppose God is an artificial existence in some people's minds! I doubt it.

To all who have experienced a moment of insight or creativity: That was God speaking to you. I don’t know about God being anyone's co-pilot, but I do believe God is our teacher. It makes "school of higher learning" take on an entirely different meaning.
I expect some would say the computer is a creation of man inspired by God. That is a path I would tread carefully.
