Evolution is not "random", religious folk try and make it sound as if there is no direction or initiative behind natural selection, but it's rather apparent for all to see.
I suppose I can throw evolution out the window and claim my copy of the Silmarillion offers a completely valid version of how our universe came to be, but I doubt many people would take me seriously.
It would be no different than what religious creationists are claiming though.
Could it have been random chance? Yes, undoubtably so. Could it have been some being you would call "supernatural"? Yes, also undoubtably so, unfortunately you like more than a few others demonize a concept called religion *which is largely a specialised definition to lump several things together and call it religion* so you apply deep criticism of ideas attached to said concept. Have you ever looked critically at the Big Bang Theory and seen all the obvious dishonest BS conflations they take to keep a starting point they have no real proof for while observation proves them wrong time and time again? I mean, for all we know we may not have truly existed five seconds ago with all the memories of the past being fabrication. We are all human, we simply do not know and both sides need to just friggin agree to disagree. Minus the criticism, politics and games.

P.s.: Observation does not back up the Big Bang. You do not know ciritical thinking entails right? But I digress.
