Either there is a metaphysical reality that provides a "spark", if you will, of reason to living organisms such as ourselves, or else we are not actually reasoning, self-aware beings, but merely beings which act as if we are.
So there are only 2 options huh? Please allow me to offer a 3rd:

Alternatively we may be computer programs ourselves in some alien video game. I could go on but I believe that I've made my point.
If so it would seem that you're the one who's lacking evidence.
it's artificial. It isn't real. You're never going to get a Turing computer to actually think
