I'm not going to get into a theological pissing match, but I subscribe to the theory of the Grand Architect.
There are so many things that have to be PERFECT to allow the diversity of life. Water doesn't sustain life if frozen or gasious. The moon is in perfect alignment and gives us the tides that are essential for life. We are the perfect distance from the sun that is the perfect size. A climate change of even 5 degrees would wreak complete havok on the planet. That's how much of a pinhead we dance on.
Even the slight tilt off axis makes the seasons possible as Earth makes it's yearly orbit. The atmosphere blocks would normally would be deadly gamma rays. There are species that have absolutely no history of evolution. We could just be someone's aquaium or God's little experiment. All I know is that billions of things had to align perfectly for things to be so perfect.
One finally comment before I refuse to comment further because it's just not a topic quite appropriate, but animals like cats and dogs don't really have near the self awareness. The only "concience" they have is that if they poop in the bed they will be punished. There is no sense of guilt actually, it's just a sense of punishment...they understand they can't do certain things, but don't really know why IMO.
