Yes. We can be certain Evolution won't produce something that does not
enhance the probability an animal's genes will make it into the next
generation or is a side effect of something that does. And we can be
certain that even if the thing was not produced by Evolution but by pure
dumb luck Evolution will do nothing to prevent genetic drift from erasing
it in a very small number of generations.
