These are always fun tidbits to have during a religious conversation. I only have a few, please feel free to add any that you have.

Reproduction: Why send millions of soldiers to do the job that only one is needed for?

Human Body: Fragile, very hard to repair, cannot live without water or food. We are also very slow on foot, compared to most other animals.

Construction: I think that any natural disaster is evidence that god doesnt exist. Why build a planet to house your children, and let them die when your creation malfunctions.....

its messy because of sin
What causal links do you draw between specific sins and specific design flaws? Even something that may be construed as a divine punishment for sin, such as natural disasters, does not establish logical causality. If the messiness of natural disasters is due to sin, why do so many of these disasters occur in uninhabited areas where there is no effect on humanity?
Well, according to religious people "God" creates natural disasters to punish sinners. Of course, there is usually quite a bit of collateral damage. "God" has pretty terrible aim when it comes to punishing individuals.
God allows natural disasters for his higher purposes. check out "job" in the bible ,also "job"was a believer,also im not religous but spiritual, theres a difference Peace!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Excerpts from Epicurus lead off "The Portable Atheist" I love reading seriously old thought .
One has to wonder why organisms are so susceptible to disease and death. Oh, wait, that's right, when the rib-woman ate the fruit from the tree with the talking snake, God put an ancient curse on people which made them die... 70-90 years after being born.

For taking only six days to create the universe, he sure does dilly-dally on his punishments.
Placement: Why would one put a waste disposal site right next to a playground???
And the system to shunt air/food/water to one or the other often misfires.
You all really need to check out http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/ce/4/part2.html for a wonderful and extremely long list of poor or malevolent designs from "The Designer."
And let's not forget the human eye. ID theorists LOVE to point out the human eye as an example of God's perfect design. But really, if we were to design a camera like the human eye, it would have all the wires and electronic components criss-crossing in front of the photoreceptors with special software to edit that stuff out of the picture on-the-fly. The engineer designing that shit would be looking for a new job!

Not to mention the myriad of problems with the eye. How many people in the world need glasses because their eyeball is too long or too short to properly focus light?

I have a rare visual disorder that, because of one little gene screwing up makes me completely colorblind, extremely photo-sensitive, and legally blind. I dare a religitard to tell me God's design of the eye is "perfect!" HMPH!
Being made in the "image" of god, his "likeness," he didn't really do any planning. He just copied himself.

I have had some believers say that the Genesis line where this is contained doesn't mean that god made a literal copy of himself. I argue otherwise. The verse uses two synonyms, which is an obvious effort to drive home the point: Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness... If it wasn't meant to mean that we are beings with bodies pretty much exactly like god's, then the writer wouldn't have used such a a common technique to emphasize the point. They wanted us to think we were like god (or the gods, but that's another issue).

So, no real design was used or even pondered, really. Just an existing template. Which raises the question...does god shit? or pick his nose? or scratch his ass? or clip his toenails? or brush his teeth? or have B.O.? shave his balls? or....well, you get the idea.
hahaha!!!! I think that God is pretty much made in OUR image!! Since it was humans like us (well not exactly) that created God.

This is awesome!!! :)
