QUOTE: "'Without mast cells, histamine or OEA, we could not survive a marathon or a day-long hike without snacks, or any long period of time without food," said Piomelli. "What's fascinating to me is that a cell that was supposed to be the 'bad guy' in allergies, is the same one that allows us to survive prolonged lack of food or major physical effort.'"

DAVID: When hominins became bipedal running down animals became a way of getting food. The anatomy of our feet and this metabolic arrangement had to occur. Not by chance.

Yes, it’s amazing how cells and cell communities seem to be able to change their structure and their use in order to cope with changing demands, like the need to run on two feet, or the need to survive prolonged lack of food. Definitely not by chance. Of course it is possible than an unknown power preprogrammed bipedal feet and mast cells, histamine or OEA 4.1 billion years ago, or popped in to fiddle with the anatomy of a few individual hominins before they even started running after animals. Or maybe (if he exists) he simply invented a mechanism that enabled the cell communities of which all organisms are composed to change their own structures and functions. But for some reason you don’t seem to think that he would want to create such a mechanism, because although apparently we mustn’t guess what he wants because that would mean humanizing him, you happen to know what he wants (i.e. “total innovation control” via auto-piloting or dabbling).
