Darwinism cannot admit to purpose as in direction since the whole foundation of Darwinism is chance and circumstance.

As Gould commented, if the the evolutionary clock could be set back and rerun everything in the world would look different since there is no direction or purpose to existence.

For that reason the Darwinist philosophy is also nihilistic, no reason for being here beyond happenstance, no reason for continued existence beyond self survival and then nonexistence.

Darwinism is also a materialistic philosophy in that cannot contemplate existence except for the sake of existence and any ideas beyond that are just part of the necessity of existence.

So I think if Darwinists start using words like purpose they'll be quick to explain no intelligence is implied.

You nailed it! That is why Darwinian Evolution is inherently leftist. Sure there might be a few confused Darwinists who share a few conservative values with genuine conservatives, but the overall tendency is hard to the left.

Evolution could be God’s method of creation. Evolution could be unfolding according to God’s plan.

Why do you limit God ?

"Darwinism cannot admit to purpose as in direction since the whole foundation of Darwinism is chance and circumstance."

The purpose of "Darwinism" or natural selection and evolution (for you folks in Crevo-Linda) is succesful reproduction. Come on, try to keep up.
