No. It is known as "survival of the FIT" - a very big difference.  It is not
just the fittest that survive.  It is those who meet or exceed the minimum
requirements.  The fittest against one threat may not be able to survive the
next threat, whereas the barely able to survive the first threat may be the
best at surviving the next.

Define "fortuitous." In evolution it's known as "survival of the fittest."
article does not report anything that's new as far as *evolution* is
