Cognitive faculties of human beings…

Embracing the grand evolutionary view that the sensory organs and cognitive faculties of human beings are the result of random and purposeless natural process raises an issue of trust regarding that which is observed. Does one’s observations and thoughts actually correspond to reality? As a matter of reasonable practice, a person doesn’t typically accept the idea that information, knowledge, and truth can come from a random, accidental source. How can such rational enterprises as logic, mathematics, and science be reasonably justified when the human brain and mind are the result of a non rational, mindless accident? Naturalism, in effect, purports that life, the mind, person hood, and reason came from a source that lacked each of these profound faculties and qualities. This would certainly be an effect much greater than its cause!
