I find it weak too, for a different reason. His argument that
intelligence is not significative for survival doesn't work anymore
when the same intelligence gives a species some powerful technology to
change the environment: a moderately intelligent dinosaur may be not
much fitter than a dumb one, but a dinosaur intelligent enough to
detect the incoming asteroid and change its orbit is a hell of a lot
fitter than a T. Rex.
