Luis,

>> You have made a faulty distinction. > You have equated “evolution is a completely random process” with “evolution is guided by principles about which we have no clue. One could as easily equate “rolling dice is a completely random process” with “the fall of a die is guided by principles about which we have no clue.” > Random simply means, “not having a discernible pattern.” > If we could free ourselves from “time,” then we’d be outside – or “at the end of” -- these processes some describe (to your chagrin) as ‘random.’ At this point there would be no randomness. All events would be “in the past.” This is one of many resolutions to the “dilemma” you have identified.
