Yet, as I said before, I cannot persuade myself that electricity acts, that the tree grows, that man aspires to loftiest conceptions all from blind, brute force. (Darwin 1985–, VIII, 275) To sum up: Darwin stressed the argument to adaptive complexity, even as he turned it to his own evolutionary ends. He made – or, if you prefer, claimed to make – the argument to design redundant by offering his own naturalistic solution, evolution through natural selection.
