If you look up the word "accident", one of the definitions is: "any event that happens unexpectedly, without a deliberate plan or cause."

Seems to me like evolution fits that description quite well. Maybe not the "unexpectedly" part anymore, but I think we can all agree that there wasn't anyone around to expect anything when it all got started!
