That is true and is a severe limitation of Evolution, a limitation a mind designed by a intelligence, like a computer, would not have. You seem to be saying that a mind made in a crappy haphazard way would be conscious but a well designed mind would not be; well I can't prove that is untrue but it just doesn't seem likely to me.

No, I'm saying it might be conscious in a very different way - which would be hard to determine if we were only watching its intelligent behavior from outside. But since I was hypothesizing an AI we might also know how it's intelligence was implemented and using that knowledge and some clever testing we might understand that its consciousness was different.
