However, let me elaborate a bit on the "God is a screwup" angle. You may already realize this, but what's at issue here is the notion that 'God' is all-powerful, perfect, omniscient, omnipotent, etc, etc. If that is the case, then it doesn't make sense that he would design things with such obvious flaws.

I realize this is the issue, but how do you rationally answer someone who's only argument is personal incredulity?

You can't think of a reason why God would create humans with an appendix, so that's it? Even after a scientifically determined use for it is given, it's not good enough.

There is no way of answering such thinking.
