It is because, by definition science can explain a "why" for processes only a "how". You can only have purpose if there is an intelligence behind the act. Science says that since you can NOT prove that there is an intelligence or a designer it must be assumed that mathematical properties dictated the development of the universe including the emergence of life on our planet. G-d exist only for those of faith. Dennett addresses this issue with the metaphor of the lottery winner. The process by which the person wins the lottery is knowable, but why he is the winner is not. Humanity is the "winner" in a process that over 100's of millions of years has created a small bubble of 10,000 years of intelligent life. We are the only intelligent species humanity is likely to ever know. Faith is the rational attempt to understand the "why" of our universe.
