Amazing Anatomy, You Say, Cannot Result From Trial And Error

Unfortunately for you, me, and the world,
too many folks decide what they believe and
then argue forever in its favor. They
keep hoping to be vindicated personally,
regardless of the truth of a matter, if someone
will buy their clever argument.

You argue that, because the bird's anatomy
is integrated as to function, it cannot have resulted from a "sorting via trial and error process over thousands of generations."
Yet you will be making the intelligent design argument about human city construction where,
similarly, advantageous structures are well-integrated AFTER many generations of less
well-constructed versions of the same cities.

So far, it sounds like the human attention to
professional construction was the deciding factor
allowing improvement in integrity. Yet...
DNA coding accomplishes the steps which professional constructing humans had to do -- which was 1) continuity: recordkeeping about professional standards and training the next generation; 2) quality control, correcting small errors and 3) with DNA editions, there are far more mathematical units (individuals and generations) for the small
changes to "catch on."

So actually, the better constructed an individual, as a result of a small mutation,
the better chance over time that its descendants would be reproduced and pass on that "design."

DNA is certainly divinely auspicious.
