He also holds that the universe is teleological. Humans and value are somehow the goal of evolution. But once again, he doesn't know how this works or could be detected. He drifts back and forth between claiming that he is just engaged in a thought experiment, ie lets assume that evolutionary theory is incomplete, what would that mean, and claiming that evolutionary theory is false in the sense of incomplete.
If he would have explicitly stated that what he is doing is a thought experiment and consistently stuck to that line of argument, without claiming the evolutionary theory is false, the book would have been stronger.
