Brain-Eating Amoebas and Intelligent Design

As I'm sure many of you have read, brain-eating amoebas enter the body through the nose, whereupon they travel to the brain to feed. Lately, they've killed several people.

Intelligent Design likes to claim that all creatures were created by a benevolent higher entity they call the the "designer" (which is a code word for the Abrahamic God).

Then along come brain-eating amoebas. The mere fact brain-eating amoebas exist disprove the idea of an intelligent designer.

Or, more accurately, brain-eating amoebas disprove the idea of a benign intelligent designer. [cue scary music]
