In regards to the first paragraph there was no death.
It would seem difficult to have natural selection if there is no death.
Also each part of creation was deemed good which means no improvement is necessary.
Variation of the species is given as a curse not a blessing. Gen 3:17
Thorns and thistles are a bad thing not a good thing.
Disease and death are a bad things not a good things.

As to the spiritual aspect of Matthew.
God did not send randomly mutated seed and then select the best fruit.
He sent the same seed to every one.
The ones who prepared themselves by making a conscious effort to comply with His directives have prepared the soil-of-their-minds.
Fruit is then produced based on the willingness of the mind to let it.
No one can improve on the perfect mind of God and so we are all inferior imitations.
That is why Jesus said in Matthew 10:24 the student is not above his teacher.
It is enough that the student be as his teacher.

This does not seem to fit into a natural selection theme.

I am curious as to the reason you would wish to restrict God from the use of supernatural ability.

In the past I have found there is a human trait which causes us to want to limit God to our ability of comprehension.
In other words ďif I canít understand it then God canít do itĒ.

If this is not so exactly what supernatural
(BEYOUND YOUR COMPREHENSION )involvement would you feel comfortable allowing God to have in creation?
