Think of it like a gumdrop factory that produces gumdrops of all colors, but a machine on the end selects only red. No one would call the process by which only red gumdrops emerge from the factory random.

I don't agree with what zi ko believes as far as evolution but if I we're advocating for him I would say if there was no factory it would be random no doubt. So let's just call the "factory" the designer, therefore, not random.

Re: beneficial mutations
I think zi ko believes there is a designer involved. You used a factory as an example of why things arent random. I just mean things aren't random because of a desinger (your factory).

Although this isn't the thread for it, but I took your analogy to infer a desinger when you mentioned factory.
