I think natural selection is somewhat of a misnomer. Even natural processes can be God directed.
For example, the cold winters were planned and executed precisely and intently, down to the exact temperature and duration, to cause necessary intended changes to happen on earth…
Here is a slightly less vague example to help, before I dig up the details on the one given above.
I was in the Chicago Field Museum and was wowed out of my mind by the guide’s introduction of Lignans – introduction of new type of cells, buidling blocks of trees, that cannot be digested by anything on the planet at that time, and then all these were buried and turned into pressurized into coal millions of years later. That blew my mind. Imagine x years of trees grown all over earth rapidly then when they die they just accumulated pile high. Then the pressure and their own weight (plus maybe some geology and tectonics) made them into fuel that we use and rely on today. How did this cell lignan suddently come to existence and why? And why wasn’t there anything that could digest it??
Science can discover and observe but only history, philosophy, theology can tell us why. Even all the human disciplines added together cannot know everything, so how can One human discipline claim know everything and have the right answer?
