Charles Darwin’s “Horrid Doubt” (Sickler)

One very strong argument against naturalistic evolution goes like this: if we evolved from a tiny inorganic molecule, how can we trust our own minds? How can non-cognitive, non-rational matter evolve into cognitive, rational matter? And if that is the case, why should I trust my own thoughts and reasoning?
