For years people cited the wiring of the vertebrate eye as evidence of “poor design” in biology.
According to Erika DeBenedictis, “one of the big limitations of biology are the basic building blocks themselves.”
Proponents of intelligent design would agree that biology is imperfect and biomedicine should be encouraged to cure diseases and fix problems.
I won’t recap the splendid work Emily Reeves has already done here in dissecting the TEDx talk from a scientific angle.
It truly matters that we follow the evidence to its logical end and base our research and applications on that end.
