Designed to adapt

The past two days I've been thinking about some non sequiturs:

Cooking:

Just because a cookie recipe can be adapted to different tastes or available ingredients doesn't mean the original recipe came about by random processes.

Sewing:
Just because a pair of jeans can be altered to fit a smaller person doesn't mean the original pair of jeans came about by random processes.

Math:
Just because an equation can be fit to different parameters doesn't mean that the equation itself came about by random processes.

Biology:
Just because an organism can adapt to different selection pressures doesn't mean that the organism itself came about by random processes.

And what better proof of a very imaginative, efficient, and wise Designer than the built in process of adaptation itself.
