"Now the die-hard evolutionist comes and says, order and beauty only exist in your head, in truth it's just a big disorder out there. But the die-hard evolutionist misses the simple, logical fact that if "beauty" and "order" only exist in our heads, then so does "disorder" and, for that matter, "heads" themselves. In trying to undermine the believer's position, all the skeptic manages to achieve is to undermine his own.

Charles Darwin wrote
"With respect to immortality, nothing shows me [so clearly] how strong and almost instinctive a belief it is, as the consideration of the view now held by most physicists, namely, that the sun with all the planets will in time grow too cold for life, unless indeed some great body dashes into the sun, and thus gives it fresh life. Believing as I do that man in the distant future will be a far more perfect creature than he now is, it is an intolerable thought that he and all other sentient beings are doomed to complete annihilation after such long-continued slow progress. To those who fully admit the immortality of the human soul, the destruction of our world will not appear so dreadful.”
