Mindless Design?

Hardly. Secret behind squid beaks uncovered

"Nature takes care of the problem by changing the beak composition progressively, rather than abruptly, so that its tip can pierce prey without harming the squid in the process," Zok said. "It's a truly fascinating design!"

Fascinating finding, but it takes a mind to design. And it still ain't all that easy, just ask the scientists trying to put this knowledge to good use.

I love how they speak as though someone were designing these things and then claim no one did.
