I haven't seen anyone in this thread so far suggesting evolution as a blind, unguided process. No one who seriously understands the theory would assert such a thing.

Well Richard Dawkins called it the Blind Watchmaker and if it isn't unguided you are getting into the realms of teleology.

I thought Goethe had replied to your Monkey Flower example. As he would say, "they have been given a felicitous mobility and plasticity that allows them to grow and adapt themselves to many different conditions in many different places."
