Natural selection precludes agency


Article reads: Evolution is the culmination of random and unplanned changes in organisms and the environment that promotes the survival of those best adapted to their surroundings. DNA gets mutated. Meteors crash into the earth. The first fish to leave the waters for land could not ponder how many more gill mutations would be needed to breathe air. Nor did they determine if the ambient oxygen would support them. The waters receded, and those with the best primitive lungs survived. True evolution precludes the possibility that you can be aware of it and plan for it. In other words, a politician who says he is evolving on an issue can’t be.
