They say - 'Evolution has no purpose'.

Why then, an organism has exactly what's required to survive - nothing less ( you'll say because of natural selection.. ok) and NOTHING MORE.

Can anybody explain this for me. And as the organisms 'co-evolved', a predator too good to fail WILL cause imbalance.

Yes, you along with a bunch of other believers here need to educate yourselves on the topic of evolution, that way you'll understand completely why organisms survive. We aren't here to teach you these things, that is your responsibility, not ours.

Humans and T-Rex could be classed in the 'too good for their own long term survival' category. Cockroaches and crocodiles aren't as clever but their here for the long term.

Then, is it a mere coincidence that -

1. Humans are intelligent enough to acknowledge the value the bio - diversity and how it sustains life on earth.

2. There was never a 'too good for survival' organism in the tens of millions years to create an imbalance.

3. Only two out of SO MANY organisms, really?

The answer is right there. Natural selection. For example in the case of Darwin's finches these birds migrated from South America to the Galapagos Islands. We found that these birds evolved in different directions to eat different things.

Some birds evolved very thin beaks in order to pick out bugs from holes. Other evolved very thick hard beaks to break the shells of hard seeds. The original birds did not have these extreme beaks, only a few birds flew in from South America maybe only two, and these beaks were created with mutations. natural selection selected the ones that helped these birds the most giving them just what they needed to survive the best.

A great predator will wipe out most of the prey. But then their population will decline from starvation. The prey that survive will have traits that allow them to avoid the predators and the future generation of prey will have these traits. This is how co-evolution happens.
