Having integrity and having analytical intelligence have nothing to do with each other. Even if we accept your proposition that smart people are more likely to do evil, we would have to define what type of intelligence are we talking about. Is it analytical? Spatial? Memory? Emotional? Verbal? The question is too complex.

Maybe because your church has trained you to see intelligence as evil. A lot of religious organizations seem to spread that prejudice.

Morality is a form of intelligence and it isn't morality that grants intelligence but maturity - God began to increase my intelligence 4-5 years ago but it took 16 years before it happened.

Highly developed cognizant skills often lead to material wealth, political power, etc. But it seems that moral bankruptcy goes hand in hand with those attributes, witness recent events with wealthy Epstein and wealthy and powerful Trump.
