2.1. Evolutionary intelligence

Evolutionary Algorithms (EA) and Genetic Algorithms (GA) are obviously algorithms. Algorithms are intelligently designed by definition 1, while intelligent design isn't supported by the theory of evolution. So, EA and GA can't be supported by the theory of evolution.

Evolutionary Algorithms are useful though for finding an optimum value. They are comparable to the PID Controller found in central heating systems, which optimizes the burning time to avoid undershoot and overshoot.

1 algorithm: “any set of detailed instructions which results in a predictable end-state from a known beginning
