Well intelligence can be defined in many ways. Though if I'm gonna define it I would say it's the ability to learn. But it's really not as black and white as that, as I'm sure you know.

In what sense? Cells are not an intelligent form of life. They are not conscious; as I've said they react in the way physics determines their chemical interactions should.
If you're asking how they produce intelligence you really are in the realm of philosophy. To begin with I'll ask you to define intelligence.

I agree - but I just don't like people abusing the term by using it when there so much uncertainty which is always the case in philosophy.

That could be the same for anything. You can always doubt the conclusion to something, even in science. You just have varying degrees of doubt. Sometimes it's so low it gives you the idea of certainty.
(you, yourself even suggested it can be use when "sometimes it's [doubt is] so low it gives you the idea of certainty".)
