Dr. Guliuzza gives key arguments of detecting design in sexual reproduction, in contrast to evolution and order caused by natural law.

Dr. Randy Guliuzza
. . .asserted that he was not making an argument about design based on the absence of information but from form and function. “If reproduction isn’t fully functional right from the beginning there are no offspring” and nothing for natural selection to work on, he said. The first half of the lecture focused on the male reproductive system and fertilization. “Fertilization is a highly complex and coordinated sequence of events that is solid evidence of design,” Guliuzza asserted. He explained in great detail how the male and female chemical and hormonal parts of this process rely on the functioning of the other. . . .
The lecture’s second half mainly covered pregnancy. Guliuzza questioned the evolutionary explanation for fetal hormonal control over the “maternal organism.” He also presented the “delicate balance of maternal [and] fetal immune responses” as evidence of design. He pointed out that the mother’s immune system does not destroy an embryo with just a few cells. This would cause extinction of the human race. He also discussed the “initial protection after birth” maternal immunoglobulins provide the newborn.
Guliuzza’s argument, which he presented several times, was that if one part of the complex reproductive process breaks down, the entire system stops working. Such an interruption does not have another chance to right itself.
