By that analogy, it makes us Humans no better than a Carpenter Ant....or a termite....
I must take some umbrage at that concept.
While it's true that Humans, as other creatures, use what is avavailable in the environment t serve their purposes...even going as far as using basic tools, as we see in various species....Humans far transcend those basics!!
Unlikely I, or even a few others, will find a way to convince you of the immensity of the timescales involved in the incredible diversity that our planet, and indeed, the entire Universe have, and how things that appear to have 'popped into existence' just a few thousand years ago actually required millions of years of evolution.....

It's not like nature could have had anything to do with creating humans using a slow biological process.. bacteria and plants maybe but humans are way too important to be just a product of natural evolution!
Now thats god complex.
