Swapping Awe

Interestingly, the biological community regularly sings the praises of natural selection and the wonders it has wrought while admitting that it has no comprehension of how those wonders were wrought. Natural selection, we are assured, is cleverer than we are or can ever hope to be. Darwinists have merely swapped one form of awe for another. They’ve not eliminated it. - William Dembski

I've thought about this fact innumerable times in the past. Listening to Dawkins talk of natural selection is almost a spiritual experience.
