Thank hundreds of millions of years of evolution for the development of an enlarged brain and consciousness? Doesn't really roll off the tongue.

I forget who it was (may have been Pratchett) who was talking about atheists hitting thumbs with hammers and shouting 'Oh! Random fluctuations in the space-time continuum!' :haha:
