Humans are able to be aware of
themselves. A worm doesn't know its a worm,
and a bird doesn't know its a bird, but a human knows its not a worm or a bird. All the creatures on the planet have no idea what or who they are - but people know the are people. This makes us unique, and special, and significant.
eing self-aware is a great gift. It means we can feel
responsible for ourselves, and for other people. This
is so different from all other creatures, which run on
instinct. Instinct is like a computer program. Animals keep to their program from birth to death. They have no choice. Like any man-made machine, they
can do only what they are programmed to do.
But humans have freedom of choice - and with it comes responsibility for the choices we make.
This is why we cannot blame God for the mess the world is in. Humans live their lives in a human body. The pages ahead will explore some of the wonders of God's design of our body.
