Can intelligent behavior exist without consciousness or can it not?

If it can then consciousness is not needed from Evolution's point of view
and so could not have produced it. So how did a conscious being like you
get here?

If you can not have intelligent behavior without consciousness then logically
you'd have no more reason to think a AI was a zombie than to think a
intelligent human was a zombie. As for me I don't believe in zombies.
