Evolution not a random process

Dave Wilson asks (Write Back, July 18): "Is there a scientist behind the scenes who designed and built a complex, multi-layered system that sustains life? Or did it all happen by chance?"

The answer is neither. Darwinian evolution, through natural selection, is not a random process - see any good book on the subject, or the Wikipedia article on natural selection.
