Was intelligence, nature's plan from the very beginning? To clarify some points about this debate.
Since the start of life there have been many variations and grading of species. Some species stopped evolving millions of years ago and others have gone on to evolve when they would have been more successfull, not do have done so. Crocodiles and sharks are just two examples. It appears, after years of research, that the reason for this scaling down was to allow intelligent life to have a better chance of survival. This pattern suggests that evolution is not random, therefore there must be a natural explanation. The best way to solve a problem is by understanding it, this applies to the meaning of life as much as any other problem! Darwin's theory on primates is just that, a theory. Could it be that they stopped evolving because intelligent life had been accomplished? This would fit in with the rest of the pattern.
