You insist that machine guns can only come about through "the historical progression of technology." Great. Why? Because we've seen the historical record implying that machine guns come into existence through technological changes that rely on purely physical laws and processes -- that is to say, the behavior of human beings, who operate in the material world. We have never seen an example of a machine gun that didn't require such a thing

Why is this not an exercise in question-begging, when you assume that humans are the result of purely natural laws and processes? That no intelligence was required to produce them?
