Evolution deniers ALWAYS ask the same question about objects being designed. I never hear them looking at a new puppy, or a plant, or a human, where the characteristics are different from the parents, and answering the question "Who designed the puppy to have a white spot when the parents don't have any white, and why ? Why is the flower on that plant different from the others ? Why does that kid have red hair/blue eyes/freckles when his parents don't ?"

Nope. They never ask this question about living things, just about objects which don't reproduce on their own.
