The subtitle: How We Know What’s Really True
The tile iis wrong here: the term ‘magic’ is vacuous for reductionists. Magic should refer to ‘acts of will’ that perform actions (that might seem ‘miraculous’) or else to actions performed by agents who have realized self-consciousness and the will to conscious action (etc, there are many versions here).

The subtitle shows Dawkins’ arrogance in action. If ‘science’ got evolution wrong with Darwinism, it is futile to discover how science achieves certainty.
