Speaking of pathogens...a better re-design would include a more robust human immune system.

Then you would have to redesign the nose so that it doesn't get stuffed up. You would also have to make it bigger because thereare times during exertion that you need so much air, you breath through your mouth.
Exactly! You are already suggesting better alternatives to what we have now. I'm not very impressed with our current engineering specs if you ask me.

Either the sun is too close or our skin needs more hair or what I said above.

We already do have a mechanism in place. But, some of us are descended from races who spent centuries or more living in places where these mechanisms were not in much use (e. g. British Isles).

Curse you, Irish skin!!!

We should photosynthesize. Solves a lot of problems. Drinking Beverage



Of course, it's not easy being green.

Funny. Since I don't have a photo of a frog I shall present you with a photo of a Frogfish.

Camouflage. We don't have camouflage! Better yet chromatophores so we can change our coloring at will.

Wow you actually went there...now I've got Kermit the frog signing about being green running through my head. Thanks a lot.

I suggested a more robust immune system and here we have a young scientist developing built-in sensors that fight off infections! Now why couldn't god think of this?

RE: Intelligent RE-Design
I'd like better eyesight like that of birds of prey:

Some birds have ultraviolet sensitivity; others have infrared sensitivity. To boot, some birds can even see the Earth's magnetic field. Much of the credit for avian visual acuity goes to the extraordinary retina, which grows out of the brain during development, making it an official component of the central nervous system. Indeed, the avian retina is far more complex in structure and composition than the human retina, and it contains many more photoreceptors -- rod- and cone-shaped cells that detect light and color, respectively.
