You do not seem to be very bright.
I'd never heard of Asimov's article, but it took me less than 30 seconds to find the references.
That's not an article, but a book. You don't know Asimov and I who needs smarten up?
Orthogenesis, also known as orthogenetic evolution, progressive evolution, evolutionary progress, or progressionism, is the biological hypothesis that organisms have an innate tendency to evolve in a definite direction towards some goal (teleology) due to some internal mechanism or "driving force".
Great. I thought the Watchmaker was blind as they told me and evolution wasn't teleological. Now a "driving force". So amazing. Moved by what? Supernatural powers? So it was easy. "Driving force" joined the second amino-acid to the first, then the third and so on, knowing the final sequence right from the beginning. Nature produced hemoglobin teleologically because "driving force" told Nature animals would need it.
Everything is clear now. Evolution has a "driving force" that guides it (of course you'll tell I'm wrong, it's not guiding, it's something else, some sort of fallacy of mine because ignorance of words technically correct).
You didn't tell me if you prefer: supernatural selection or dumb luck?
We could win Powerball (of course I had to share a part with you). Can you tell me some details about "driving force"?
You're the most stubborn so far. Everybody gives up earlier.
You should tell me about your infancy, you were a terror movie for your parents, weren't you?
