But it is. The big achievement of Darwinism (and the more complete version, moden synthesis) was to explain the origin of biological complexity without requiring some pre-existing, guiding intelligence. It follows directly from lower levels of abstraction (physics->chemistry->biology). You might disagree with Darwinism, and that's fine.
