The "Intelligent Design" Fallacy

If we entered a deserted Rome, knowing nothing whatsoever of its history, what would we make of it? Would we see St. Peter’s Basilica and conclude that it is so beautiful that only God could have built it? As naïve as this seems, this is exactly what believers in intelligent design do when they argue that evolution cannot have built the human brain.
