"In any lump of rock, there is implicit mystery"
"If you cannot understand the Creator, how do you feel so comfortable defining the creation?"
I don't, but I do feel comfortable making observations of the creation. Viz mathematics and physics, and also of more complex subjects such as the question: what is life? Rocks, by observation are not life. A lawnmower by observation does not have consciousness, therefore it cannot 'fancy itself alive'.
By speculation rocks and lawnmowers may be alive and have consciousness. But every observation has proven otherwise.
