In the Theory of Evolution, two main factors take place:
One is random, which are the different mutations that organisms' DNA suffer. This process adds genetic variability to a given population.
The other one is not random, which is natural selection. It is not random because it will only select those organisms which are better capable of surviving to the conditions of their environment.
Most likely I am wrong and I would like to be corrected, but I was thinking that, since natural selection depends on mutations and the conditions of the environment, and since those conditions can be formed by random processes, wouldn't it make natural selection as actually random?
I mean, this is probably an over simplistic analogy, but take a group of mammals which suffer a great series of mutations in a short period of time, and separate into two species of mammals: one group of animals with hair and the other group has no hair at all. Suddenly, one day starts to snow. We could expect that the second group would most likely go extinct, while the mammals with hair would survive. Since the weather is based on random processes and since natural selection in this example would be based on the mutations that the animals suffered and the weather as well, wouldn't natural selection be a fundamentally random process?
