The “intelligent design” argument has always struck me as silly for this very reason: The human body has a waste disposal system in precisely the same place as its most pleasurable sex organ. What’s “intelligent” about that design?
Neil deGrasse Tyson brought up this point while debating a pastor on last night’s The Nightly Show.
“What is the intelligence of which you speak?” Tyson said. “Once again, an asteroid comes and it takes out 70 percent of all the species of life on Earth. Is there some intelligence you’re ascribing to it?
“I think of, like, the human body, and I look at what’s going on between our legs,” Tyson continued. “There’s like a sewage system and entertainment complex intermingling. No engineer of any intelligence would have designed it that way.”
