Are you sure your not confusing intelligent design with optimum design? Optimum design is perfect design which doesnt really exist. For example a car or computer is intelligently design but that doesnt mean it will never breakdown or have faults. The argument that "God wouldnt have done it that way" seems like a questionable way of proving that man isnt a machine.
And the conspiracy was strong, for the people increased continually - 2 Samuel 15:12
