Yes, ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE. Not some programmed path. They won't spontaneously become sentient if given time, or in order to 'fill a gap' if other sentient species die out. That's nothing but creationist attempts to co-opt established fact.

There does not 'have' to be a sentient species. If one dies out, they won't get 'replaced' just because. Although two at once is less likely, there are still various scenarios where it could be a possibility, but they need pressures in that direction, they don't just reach some 'ideal' 'end form' given enough time.
