Can't stop myself.

Do you know where this clever refutation of Darwin comes from?

It first appears in the work of William Paley, writing around 1800.
Darwin's evolutionary theory answered that objection, and it was intended
to: Darwin admired Paley's work when he was young.

If you don't understand the answer to Paley, it's pretty easy to find
out, but this isn't the place.
