Examples of unintelligent design:


  • Defective vitamin C biosynthesis. One defective gene prevents the production of an enzyme which is required for synthesizing the vitamin C molecule.
  • Lack of photolyase. It's an enzyme that repairs damage caused to a cell's DNA by exposure to ultraviolet light. Almost all animals possess it, except for mammals.
  • Paedophilia.
  • Sadistic personality disorder. Some people are truly unable to feel remorse or empathy towards others.
  • Alexithymia and Agnosia in general. Some people are unable to experience love.
  • The structure of the human eye. Nerves and blood vessels don't lie behind the surface of the retina.

Other Animals

  • Flightless birds have vestigial wings. Sometimes they can still have a function, like in the case of penguins that use their wings as flippers, but in the case of kiwis the wings formed back to little, useless stubs.
  • There are cave crayfish which have eye stalks, but no eyes atop them.
  • Some wasp species are parasitic. They can only procreate by inserting their own eggs into the larvae of other species.
  • The route of the recurrent laryngeal nerve in the giraffe. See: a dissection of a giraffe on YouTube, where the extra-long nerve cord is shown.
