...Jacques Monod (Nobel Prize, 1965) calls evolution a 'gigantic lottery' or 'nature's roulette' and concludes: `Chance alone is at the source of every innovation, of all creation in the biosphere. Pure chance, absolutely free but blind, at the very root of the stupendous edifice of evolution: this central concept of modern biology is no longer one among other conceivable hypotheses. It is today the sole conceivable hypothesis, the only one that squares with observed and tested fact. And nothing warrants the supposition - or the hope - that on this score our position is likely ever to be revised... The universe was not pregnant with life nor the biosphere with man. Our number came up in the Monte Carlo game.' (Monod J., Chance and Necessity, New York, 1971, pp.121-122, 146)
