The interaction with Lents is of interest because it provides an opportunity to look again, in some detail, at a fascinating illustration of design in action.
As a systems architect, I’ve spent decades designing and implementing large and complex systems of information systems.
Avoiding serious discussion of design in nature (and of many other questions) fills a need.
Initially, I was pleased to find someone who might be an interesting new participant in the evolution debate.
In all of his “poor” design arguments, Lents inadvertently embraces the design inference.
