Yes, but we have to divert between micro and macro-evolusjon. Macro evolution has never been observed, and it is impossible to proof new morfological traits, or transcendence from one to another specie. NO science can prove this.
"But what is the point, where is it going?"
We can not tell. Obviously our creation myth may be a story about terraforming and sowing of life. Search tell us that creation myths has a core of common information, (van Ouver) inspite lack of knowledge between people in various regions of the world. Which indicate a common source.
SO... of corse it is likely that "those" who created us, may have a reason, a plan for evolution. May be it is like how we do breeding with domestic animals.
"Is it random? In the above scenario; no.
"Is it survival of the fittest?". That may be part of evolution.
" Or do we have a spirit driving us to perfect our bodies so that we can better understand and operate in the universe or multi-verse?
In that case; is it pre- programmed?
To think that our brain is a result of random chemical and physical reaction is really (sorry) stupid. There is no experience that complicated "machines" can arise as coincidences. There has to be a thought, information in the bottom.
