Undirected evolution has a goal?

The Elegance of C. elegans: Classic Design in Miniature is the title of an interesting article. It mentions that the DNA expression of each cell division from the first fertilized cell to the complete worm (~1,000 cells) has been mapped. This means that in each cell division each daughter cell while having the same DNA as every other cell has specialized a little more. The complete map from start to finish is known.

The question that arises and dealt with in the article is that the finished goal is always the same, but how could this have been known with standard evolutionary hypothesis of nondirected evolution?

The video embedded there explains everything best. Definitely worth your 10 minutes to read and watch.

Psalms 19:1 WEBA "For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David. The heavens declare the glory of God. The expanse shows his handiwork."
