Carl Sagan wrote “The Cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us — there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.” An odd sensation to feel for a dead, unfeeling, constrained by our brief existences, and created merely by chance. What about that would cause this stirring, this ‘faint sensation’? Certainly not the microorganisms from which man is supposed to have evolved from (again, purely by chance and the occasional water on our light sensitive cells that balances for thousands of years before the cells arrange themselves into a lens.)
