That's like telling a 15th Century cartographer that he's very dogmatic about his maps of something he can't view from aerial distance.Also you seem very dogmatic about something you "can't" observe.
The Church fathers (and St. Paul) are clear that humanity has a nature similar to animals and a nature similar to angels, two natures in one. The Bible teaches us we were made from dust, just like the land animals, while being breathed into. The "Image of God" according to St. Athanasius is the special something we have that are different from animals, not the whole of humanity.
