Yep! Went to NYC. I was contemplating the Island of Manhattan, which took human beings with all their industry and intelligencer and the resources of a great nation about 200 years to build. I had to keep jumping out of the way as new (little buildings) spontaneously erupted out of the sidewalk. And consider that Manhattan is FAR LESS COMPLEX than a single living cell, cannot self-replicate, nor repair itself. And does not produce products for distant cities it knows nothing about.
As I've said before you should steer clear of humour. Invective seems to suit you better.
Although your Manhattan analogy is nothing to do with biological evolution I would point out that Manhattan is perfectly capable of replicating itself (were such a bizarre thing to be required), it does repair itself, and it does produce goods for distant cities it knows nothing about. (to see this you have to see Manhattan as a complete system, including the people in it, and its internal and external communication and transport links)

(Conservative and Biblical Literalist are not synonymous)
My humor and invective are BOTH better than your understanding of physical processes, or you science. Something like a human city has everything to do with biology, evolutionary or not. A city is built by us, (biological beings). A city is designed (although most very badly)
A single cell within any of us is far more complex, purposeful, and DESIGNED than any human city. It does things beyond its own capabilities, or in organization with other cells beyond its own capacity to know what, or why, it would do such a thing.
A single cell in the eye knows nothing of quantum waves, or photons, but in concert with various other cells, working synchronously at amazing speeds and with the human brain it assimilates billions of photons per second, adjusts for color, contrast, brightness, depth, flips the image 180 degrees and constructs them into a real-time video of the external world, and this without a conscious thought all day long.
That anyone in this day and age could pretend that this SYSTEM is NOT designed is a fool. You can call that invective, but I think it is an OBVIOUS truth only lost on devotees to the temple of evolution.
Why should I be easy on any of you? You have accepted a lie, (for you own reasons). Fine...but you proselyte others into your doctrines and do not allow the truth to be taught, and you pervert and limit the biological sciences. You are the false prophets of this age.
