I agree with everything you said except this, "It's not a god, but it's more closely akin to a god than it is to snow on a television screen."

Snow in a tv screen is not random, but in fact a fractal image made up of multiple intruding signals, the strongest ones having the most to do with the seemingly random image. So that seems a lot like evolution to me.

Fell free to correct me if I'm wrong, just throwing out my two cents.
