Evolution and inherent Design
Evolution has left us with a “kluge” – an ill-assorted collection of parts assembled to fulfill a particular purpose. These collections of parts are often far from ideal suited to accomplish the tasks we face.
1.To achieve a working whole by putting together kluges, each kluge in itself needs to be formed. The formation of kluge can not solely be dependent on selection of possibilities created out of random variation.
2.Design is evident when a number of separate , interacting components are ordered in such a way as to accomplish a function beyond the individual components. The greater the specificity of the interacting components required to produce the function, the greater is our confidence in conclusion of design.
3. To call evolutionary design “intelligent” carries an unnecessarily connotation of an agent.
A more appropriate description of that design is “inherent”.
Acknowledging the inherent self-organizing processes that form attractors, stabilities far from equilibrium , enriches evolutionary theory;
Inherent design plays an important role in the science of evolution.
A complete theory of evolution needs to be based on the contextual interrelatedness of all parts of living beings and the interrelatedness of living beings themselves.
A self-organizing diversity and refinement in design is continually being created by these relationship.
