Richard Dawkins, Climbing Mount Improbable. 1996

81 Darwinism allows for the possibility of vitalism: "Darwinians wouldn't mind if such providential mutations [non-random in the sense of "biased towards improvement"] were provided. It wouldn't undermine Darwinism, though it would put paid to its claims for exclusivity...."

Although, currently, no evidence for "beneficient mutational mechanism" has been discovered.
