Corrected to what, you are saying that "we still do have control over our technological creations" ! No you don't. If you were, you would not be scared of technological results of anything. You have no control over anything, our civilization rely on what computers will say about what to do. When you enter any problem to computer and it says "you have to eliminate this amount of people" you could ask twice and control all inputs and ask for an alternative solution. And if you still get the same result, you would eliminate those "certain amount of people". We may not be doing this particular example now, but we do everything else computers tell us, including how we are going to fight against pandemics, what are we going to produce and how much. In theory you have control, and you can, for example, destroy all computers. But you can not do that. Just as nature can destroy us any minute, but it does not. Because, as you said, nature did not create us conscioussly and knowingly. So if nature wipes us out, it is going to be because of the change in some dynamics within the nature, and probably other species will be wiped out alongside our kind. We did not created computers willingly to help our problems, there were many different intention and minor developments, sometimes independent from each other, and this historical process made today's computers possible. No one in 1950s could calculate that in half a century computers would match the capacity of human brain and they would be part of almost every issues of in our lives. No one was calculating that this "problem solvers" would become a problem themselves. We can not even control ourselves, what are we talking about? We cause things and hope that they will help us, that's what we are doing.
