I quite like Michael E. Levin’s comment on evolution. Evolution at most explains why certain things don’t exist, it does not explain why things (as particular things) exist and how they exist. Natural selection does not make hearts, it only filters out creatures who lack them, and thus “explains” why everything that needs a heart and exists, has a heart.
