The preeminence of design in nature and the utility of mimicking natural designs is a concept championed by the intelligent design community.

Between cells and humans, there are millions of “ugly duckling” species that are beautiful in their own way.
What drives natural selection? Evolutionary forces. What are evolutionary forces? They’re what drive natural selection.
The question posed by considering evolutionary theory versus intelligent design is whether a marvel like the femur could have arisen by chance-driven processes.
