God created humanity in a way that is very different from the way God created the physic world. He made us in his own image and likeness; with a mind to think, emotions to feel and a will to make choices. We are the colorful and intricate detail that the Lord added to His first great brushstrokes of creation. The fact that we were formed into his likeness, shows how much he loves us and wants a relationship with us, hence why were breathed into existance. So cherish every breath you take and remember that you are special.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the reath of life; and man became a living being. (NKJV)
