Because humans have come to the conclusion that *this* is the chosen form, the pinnacle of our existence, the epitome of creation.
Ha - I wouldn't want to be a saviour born in today's world! Everyone would think you were a nutter unless you pulled out a bag of miracles.
I suspect the next breakthrough in human evolution will stem from our relationship with technology. We are definitely a work in progress.
