      Victor writes about Darwin on evolution:

      >his usage is closer to "slow and gradual" than to "blind and random".

      Correct. Mutation is blind and random. Natural selection filters the
      mutations. The cumulative effect is evolution, which is, because of
      this mechanism, often slow and gradual.
