Re: and yet you go there (yes I do)
quote:
1. the cell 2. the terrestrial environment of the earth (things such as life supporting cycles and radioactive isotopes) and our life supporting moon. 3. the solar system and its position in the galaxy which also happens to be a galaxy better suited to support life. 4. fine-tuning of physics of our universe such as gravity and nuclear force. Here is an example I found from physics:

The cell is complex - but what evidence actually is that of design? The same argument applies to points 2 and 3.

Fine tuning is more interesting - but it's an area where we have no idea what the origin of the constants of nature is. Penrose's argument is that we find a constraint at the beginning of the Universe that resulted in a very low entropy state. But essentially this an unsolved problem. There is no actual evidence that design of the universe took place.
