Which parts of the human body could you design better?
A story on the denialism blog asks which parts of the body could be designed better. In a narrow sense, this is a response to intelligent design nonsense (or at least evidence that the intelligent designer wasn't particularly concerned with us). It's also a fascinating way to think about the future of surgery and medicine -- if we actually could refashion the body's organs at will, what might we change?
