It's as much of a figure of speech as "natural selection".

yes, but you were using it to justify an ethical stance, so admitting that nature DOESN'T choose invalidates your argument.
Where was I doing that? What I meant was that Phlox's bottom line was let nature choose. On rereading what I said, I can see that I might not have been clear that I was speaking to what Phlox considered the ultimate issue to be.

Phlox never really took any other stance, is what I meant.
