In Earth's genetic natural history, the most complex thing generated is the human mind. Once critics said that mind is rare, an epiphenomenon, a freakish accident. Scientists now realize that anomalous events can be quite relevatory. What we humans have cognitively become, and what we morally ought to be, reveals more than does our origin in matter. Perhaps this primate rising from the dust of the Earth, on becoming so remarkably spiritually informed, still bears the image of God.
