1. If I can paraphrase the argument it seems to be; how can we trust an organ (the human mind/brain) that developed by random chance plus some kind of vague selection. (In deference to Dawkins we might call this a selectionoid.) If evolutionary theory were true, the purpose of man's thinking would not be the search for truth, but the quest for survival... Why then should we believe the ieas of this creature called man? (Apparently there would be no reason at all.)
