Now, look at the human body, our bodies are incredible machines which defy many problems with human inventions (energy efficiency, etc.) We can regenerate cells, build bones, and repair muscles. The processing capabilities of our minds and the engineering of our cardiovascular system is amazing. So can't it be concluded that there is a greater being who must have created us?
It is apparent that this philosopher has never heard of evolution.

If he had, he wouldn't have made such a stupid analogy.
