now the earth is about 70% oceans, and lakes right, and most of the ocean is unexplored right, so there is a chance that there is life that is life almost as smart as us , or as smart as,or possible smart than us, possible  a squid, mermaid, etc?

Judging something as intelligent depends on how you define intelligent. The view most humans share is that humans are the most intelligent, simply because "We can make tools, we can build houses, we have civilization & religion, and we talk." Just because this or similar is the most common belief does not mean it is right.

The human is an animal. We do not believe the majority of other animals to harbor a great intelligence, although some animals are widely recognized as openly more intelligent than the rest of them, namely the dolphin, parrot, crow/raven, dog, and several others.

Just because the listed and several other animals display signs of a higher intelligence does not mean that they are not on par with other animals or even humans. The only acceptable difference between a human and an animal or insect that I can come up with is that a human actively asks "Why, How, When, Who, What?" and then applies it to real life situations constantly. Other animals have this capacity but do not use it as a human does, the most acceptable reason being that other animals have natural defenses such as tough skin, claws, etc while a human only has this ability to apply answers as concepts.

Other animals may do this and more. Other animals have a means of communication between one another, although it is not very similar to our own as we know it. Other animals may have philosophies, religions, etc, but we are unaware of this because they do not actively display it as the human does.

So the answer to your question is YES, there may be animals or creatures that are as intelligent or more intelligent than us, especially in the ocean. It all depends on how you measure intelligence, because intelligence itself is a man-made concept, therefore being a prime subject to our bias and need for dominance.

I agree. But it might be possible they are as inteligent just have been unable to aquire the technology because they have only rescently gained this intelect or the variables of there inviorment have kept them from making technological advancements. Many of the necesities we use for our advancements are unavailible underwater such as electricity,wich can only be created in dry areas, and fire aswell. So i guess it's possible but unlikely.
