This is what we call the Rube Goldberg paradox. Goldberg was an old cartoonist who "designed" insanely complicated gadgets for doing simple tasks; the humor came from the fact that these contraptions were unlike anything an intelligent agent would design.
Michael Behe, in his ID manifesto Darwin's Black Box, reprinted a Goldberg cartoon to draw a parallel to the crazed, redundant complexity of biochemical processes. But he must have missed the joke, because he was trying to argue that such complexity is prima facie evidence of intentional design. The dizzying complexity of something like DNA or a protein cascade is more plausibly attributed to countless iterations of a mindless process than an intelligent designer.
