No, it's not. Random means unguided and unpredictable. If a result is intentionally generated then it is predictable and not random. They're called pseudo-random numbers.Um, random is random "intentional" or not.
With the fundamental difference being where and when the screening takes place.The point is is there screening of what comes out. There is screening in natural selection as well as the other processes I mentioned.
Which is more of you claiming evolution works without the evidence. It's not fine to allow non-functional forms to propagate among a population if what you want is to even maintain the integrity of that population.As long as there is some kind of screening to throw out the nonfunctional from the functional, random changes are fine. That's what evolution does.
And it remains impossible to improve the integrity of a population by means of random changes regardless of how well selected they are.
