Neuroscientists still can’t explain consciousness, the awareness that we are living beings, among many. We don’t know the origin of life, either, except for the allegorical Bible account. It’s good to know there is mystery to life, that we are not the ultimate beings.
We hardly leave room for the Being who created us, the one who our reason tells us started that long process of evolution. We didn’t think evolution replaced creation; it just threw some light on the process. As for understanding the Creator, his son gave us plenty of material on this.
Awe is a human emotion, and one not the least bit inappropriate with this subject. That we have it makes us properly human.
