Main topics on Gene regulation, chromatin, nucleosome and histone regulation

The word design is often considered taboo within the biological community, given its close association with the term intelligent design—the notion that living systems were purposefully constructed by an intelligent force rather than through a random, evolutionary process. We argue that there is an important scientific role for considering design principles and how they influence biological systems.

They attribute  a

" molecular implementation",
" exploring",
" achieving particular functions ",
" processing information ",

" nature having preference ",

"  network design ",
"  critical structural patterns ",
"  molecular first principles ",
"  preferred biochemical solutions for particular tasks ",
"  links by chemical paths and branch points ",
"  enzymes regulation by a network ",

 to evolution, admit that there is a " huge size and large space of possible networks ",  and conclude that

" After all, biological systems have evolved under selective pressures to perform certain functions that increase organismal fitness.",  
" Prevalence of Particular network motifs because of  historical evolutionary accidents that locked in these types of solutions ",
" prediction of evolutionary convergence ",

My comment: The problem above is that they attribute a terminology which is clearly teleological to evolution, which is by definition a process which does involve no distant goals or purpose, but a mindless natural process of development towards more biological complexity. There is a clear disruption of logical flow from the evidence to the conclusion.
