If by GP you mean genetic programming, then natural selection coughed up
human intelligence starting with considerably less sophistication (and
certainly less direction) than at least some modern-day GP frameworks.
But I suppose that two out of three ain't bad for the objective calibration
of absolute certainty. It's more or less the standard experimental result
on tests of human overconfidence.
