Quote: 1. The inability to scratch one's own back. I want more flexible arms.
opposable thumbs allow you to build a tool for this
Quote: 2. Hanging the male gentials outside the body where they can get frequently banged about AND putting an enormous concentration of pain receptors there just to remind males of this flawed design.
sperm production cannot take place at 98.6 degrees. The genitals hang from the body so that they remain at a slightly cooler temperature.
Quote: 5. No body protection from the elements. Where is our fur coat? Our armor?
Humans first inhabited very warm climates. They slowly migrated to cold regions
From the right perspective, those things (nature for example)which seem to be incredibly complex actually only appear that way because they are exponentially numerous repetitions of simple things.
The grand design of nature which many people explain as "intelligent" is ultimately based on the very simple "golden mean", basically the ratio of 1 to 1.618..... This is non-terminating fraction which can be easily conceptualized by imagining a line AC, bisected at B. AB is to BC the same as BC is to AC. If that mathematical analysis is too linear to wrap your brain around right now, the same ratio is outpictured in the nautilus shell, in trees (which is perhaps why they are so cool whilst tripping), in the way seeds are arranged on a flower head, and in many of the proportions of the human body. Look at the digits of your hand. From your fingertip to your first knuckle to the second to the knuckle on you fist -- golden mean proportions.
The big "secret" to nature's "intelligent design" is that it is based on the most efficient blueprint. On a flower head for example, the golden mean allows for the arrangement of the highest possible number of seeds. By any other dimension, less seeds would fit.
So simplicity and efficiency are the key. Electricity and water follow the path of least resistance, yet people rarely consider them intelligent. Nature does the same thing, but in the multidues of repetition of something simple, humans come along and interpret it as though it must be ascribed to divine intelligence. Really because they are unable to see the macrocosm in the micro and the unity of all things. Also, the human machine is "designed" on the same simple principle of nature and since man often ascribes to himself supernatural attributes, he reflects the same megalomania onto humble nature
