Do species “learn” their way into existence?

Charles Darwin’s account of how new species evolve put randomness at the heart of the process. Creatures randomly change through mutations, he said, gradually altering whole populations, and eventually creating new species.

But researchers lately have begun considering some slightly different accounts, which strip a bit of control from such blindly random forces.

No, these ideas have nothing to do with “intelligent design”
