No option for me. I believe evolution occurs according to some laws of nature, much like how planetary orbits are guided by the laws of nature. What those laws are exactly I do not know, but I am confident that they will eventually be discovered.
I don't subscribe to the totally random theory (but not many scientists do, either) and I don't think that it requires sentient guidance (i.e. a deity which is implied by "higher power", although one could argue that higher power can include natural law I did not think that was the power that was intended by teh term).
I want to believe that Evolution is led by a higher power, but I have no hard evidence to back this up.
I find the incredible complexity of life on Earth to be almost impossible to see as being 100% random.
Therefore, I simply don't know. Human beings are very arrogant when we propose to know exactly how things happened 2 billion years ago. We is smart, but we ain't that smart.
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
