Totally agree. It is important to remember that evolution is not a moral force or moral or ethical law or maxim . It does not care what the “best” outcome is, or the “just” outcome, or the “right” outcome for it does not care about anything. Evolution is a natural law that simply is the case. It applies to all living things and we “follow” the law with no choice in the matter. If it leads to disaster that is the way of things, it won’t “care” for it cannot care. It also won’t ever change for it cannot change. It can’t do anything except what it does, which is to be the case, to apply to all living things.
