Q1: What is meant by "supreme" in this context?
Q2: Why would such a "being" (vs. entity, force, etc.) necessarily need to address any of our own uncertainties?

I agree that the acknowledgement of uncertainty is a noble attribute, but I wouldn't call it "spiritual". I call it "reasonable". When I first entered graduate school (mhlmlfhmf years ago), my department chairman gathered the starting class into his office and told us "Having a Ph.D. doesn't mean you're supposed to know everything. Rather, having a Ph.D. means being able to say I don't know...but then you goddam better know how to find the answer!". Obviously, that's pretty simplistic since a true scientist knows full well that the warm 3-pound bag of water, fat, and protein sitting between our ears has some pretty stark limitations regarding what can be perceived and believed.

And that should have no bearing on the "truth".

Any adversarial relation between the two is abstract, contrived, and irrelevant. It is conjured up by ideologues, but it has no bearing on reality as we experience it.
There is absolutely no reason that the concept of "God" should in any way conflict with the concept of "Evolution" except to the extent that narrow minds go out of their way to contrive a conflicting distinction to serve their own insecurities and agenda.
Many studies conducted over many years have shown that biological scientists are among the most religious people on planet Earth BECUASE they realize that only something like "God" -- way beyond our ability to comprehend it -- could create such a complex masterpiece as life and the universe.
