Therefore, we can see that the only probable explanation for the variety of life found on Earth today and all it's complex processes is evolution by natural selection, assuming one can comprehend it rather than simply dismiss it in favour of worshipping the gaps.
In other words, survival of the fittest would lead one to believe that at some point a dominant species would come and basically eat everything, thus surviving for the short term while killing the long term chance of ongoing survival because they're entire food source would be destroyed.
So how does the theory of evolution explain the survival of the balanced ecosystem? Or does it need to? Is it inevitable that the ecosystem as a whole will collapse because individual species are only concerned with their own survival, and not the survival of their environment?

Well, one problem I have with the probability of evolution is the idea of abiogenesis. I find it hard to believe that a cell, even an extremely simple cell, would appear by random chance, with the ability to reproduce, with RNA or some other genetic material, and with the ability to mutate fast enough to evolve into us in a few billion years and slow enough as to not die from a bad mutation.
Is Evolution Improbable?
