Dylan Hannon said "On another level, a reductive, materialist view of life denies any meaningful natural order. It posits merely random associations of molecules and environmental factors over time and space. How can this be reconciled with more traditional views, i.e., an intelligible natural world?" Dylan, the "more traditional view" you mention was overturned 150 years ago. Darwin's brilliant achievement was to show that the apparent order and design really is the result of random factors molded by natural selection and drift. That was one of the deepest insights in human history. And one of the most awe-inspiring.
