Hopefully I'm on track here....
I would start with the human head/neck combination. An intelligent designer would not have made our heads to as proportionally large in comparison to our necks: whiplash is evident.
most all other mammals (biologists correct me if I'm wrong) have a head that is equal to or smaller in size compared to their neck. Human beings being bi-ped, this makes it even worse.
We can also look at cancer: our own bodies attack us. Our own cells attack us. I'm not too familiar with cellular bio, as much as someone like WK, so I don't know what else I could say to expound on this.
These two are all I can think of with even half an argument from myself, so I'll leave it there.

Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people

For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.
-Carl Sagan

Re: Hopefully I'm on track here....
One of my favorite examples is the flying buttresses above the eye teeth. Now if we were saber tooth tigers or even baboons, such support for the eye teeth would make some sense but for the wimpy little eyeteeth in the upper mouth of Homo sapiens such support makes no sense.
What? You lost me on this one.
