According to the hypothesis of front-loaded evolution, evolution itself has been shaped and influenced by the design of the original cells. Yet from the flip-side, this would mean that a very intelligent designer anticipated the inevitability of evolution and may have designed in such a way that the process of evolution itself is a biological function more so than a process that just happens as a consequence of imperfect replication among finite resources. It is thus my contention that our understanding of evolution is significantly incomplete, as it fails to truly appreciate the subtle design that permeates it. But I can make one general prediction here. Concerning the cell and its contents, Bruce Alberts once noted, "But, as it turns out, we can walk and we can talk because the chemistry that makes life possible is much more elaborate and sophisticated than anything we students had ever considered." I predict that in another few decades, another leading scientist will comment on our understanding of evolution as follows: "But, as it turns out, we exist because evolution has been much more elaborate and sophisticated than anything we students had ever considered."
