Critics of the revamped Watchmaker argument assert that the analogy between machines and living systems is nothing more than an explanatory analogy, an illustration that provides a framework to guide research in the life sciences.

As I have written previously, work in nanotechnology provides a powerful response to this challenge, and in doing so, further strengthens the case for biochemical intelligent design. See the following resources for more on this topic:
