What do you think of Darwin's 'horrid doubt'?


Darwin wrote in a letter, "With me, the horrid doubt always arises whether the convictions of man's minds, which has been developed from the mind of the lower animals, are of any value or at all trustworthy." In other words, Darwinian Evolution leads one to conclude that we can't consider our convictions trustworthy because our thinking is just the result of chance and time. So how can anyone consider their convictions about Darwinian Evolution to be trustworthy or valuable?
