Any particular morphology would be exceedingly unlikely, when seen from the point of view of its predecessors.

But any particular morphology can be seen to be a very likely ancestor, when seen from the point of view of modern man with experience of the species that evolved from that particular morphology.

Yogi Berra said “Predicting is hard, especially about the future.”

I’m certain that if we found a perfectly shaped, full size sailing ship, made from a single piece of quartz, on the moon, that no scientist would conclude it resulted form a series of random events over billions of years.

Yet, the argument that it was just a mathematical oddity, would be the same as what you just presented, i.e. It only seems impossibly complex, because you are looking at the end result.

You demonstrate an enormous amount of faith.
