This is something I thought! I stopped thinking about it when my mom asked me (and continues to tell me ) why there are people climbing mountains even if it is so perilous. "If God has wanted to give us the possibility to climb mountains He would have done them with stairs... (I want to specify I'm not a climber). We humans want to explore the Universe (after our planet) cause we want to be more and more aknowleged of our Universe... Curiosity is something we have in our heart we cannot decide or delete this.I keep thinking about the old phrase (tweaked), "If mankind were meant to fly, they would have wings." Is not the progression of metal wings to spacecraft to hypercraft (maybe someday) mere manifestations of the human spirit, if not design?
