Perhaps It is not God we are speaking with, but the divine portion of the human consciousness! That is the point of the young lady's conversation. Godly thought is that which considers what is and is not, and is unique to humankind, because humans are DIVINE. Divinity is a tangible thing, friend. Divinity is what makes a human better than an animal. Thought and Mind are Sacred and Divine. To explore anything with that in mind is to proceed with authority.

I am not sure how we can discuss things if you do not understand divinity.
Divinity is an aspect of the Intelligent Mind. An Animal is the biological mass that Intelligence uses to exist in the world.
The question becomes: Which is greater, the Mind, or the Body? The ignorant will consider them to be the same - That is what an animal is.
Divinity is the process of thought by which a man becomes greater than an animal, and becomes a god. Divinity can be the thought of goodness for a people, or a person, or an action done to another for the cause of good. The increase of Love and Peace and Wisdom is the prospect of divinity. Animalistic people make no allocation for divinity, they reguard it as a myth, they sneer at it and cannot discuss it.
Look at the foundation of civilization itself. The ideas and forms that brought mankind out of the wild is from DIVINE THOUGHT, which said "I will create a verdant bounty, when before there was only rough places."
The sciences and the arts of mankind are DIVINE in origin, they do not issue from the mouths of animals and trees. Not all men are equally foul, nor are all of our brothers sons of light and reason.
Divinity exists, is alive, and is crucial to the functioning of the Human species. Divinity is the part of us that keeps us from falling back into dust, and our thoughts into oblivion. To say that we are merely "complex animals" is wrong. That describes our bodies and biology only. Is a human being only his form and biology? What then, is thought? How can it continue to exist, even after the man who began it is returned to dust? How is it that his idea lives on?
Divinity is the part of a human mind that transcends the matter of our bodies, and takes up conversations with God. It reveals what was not known before, and guides mankind better than his basic senses. Divnity is Mind, and the Mind of man is divine.
Those who live in the body, rather than the mind, ARE animals, and deserve to be called such. Which are you?
[Edit: Afterthought] You mentioned the Nazis before. I do not know any standard by which the National Socialists could be called "divine." Deception, Violence, and Propaganda are not the traits of divine masters, nor is it even the sign of enlightened social reform. Nazism was a effort of the unworthy few to sieze control over the many. It was a made-up thing to convince a people to do things they othewise wouldn't. They may have thought themselves divine, or given special authority, but Hitler still had to burn the Reichstag and break the windows of the Jews. Those things are not divine, nor could anyone who did them think themselves divine for it.
