    As I said, the only reason I can think of to assume "solely by chance" in
    biological evolution is to maintain theoretical reducibility of the
    biological to Newtonian physics, which is what I mean by mechanistic. If
    one isn't interested in maintaining such reducibility, why not be agnostic
    on the question?

    I'm not a believer in purposeful gods or in God. I am merely convinced on
    philosophical grounds that Darwinism (meaning that biological evolution can
    be explained solely through chance and natural selection) is materialist
    dogma, not science, so I see no reason for Darwinism other than to maintain
    a belief in materialism.
