Design implies an intelligent assesment of future use. Evolution implies a slow process that only takes into account current use.

Speaking in God's defense:

If I were setting out to create the kajillions of species on earth, I probably wouldn't devote all my time to individually designing each and every one, particularly devoting loving attention to each of the thousands of particular varieties of intestinal parasites.

I would probably set up some simple rules that do the job, and then let the rules sort them out. Sort of like setting up a cosmic computer program and then just watching it work.

This, as I understand it, is probably the position of many theistic evolutionists.
