But the idea that these 2 components were brought about by a person - where is your evidence for that?

Where is your evidence against it?

Answering a question with a question?

Anyway, I'll give it a go: Remembering that the 2 components are: (1) physical bodies
(2) the 'souls' of such bodies
An alternative means by which it was brought about would count as evidence against it. In respect of (1) I offer you evolution by natural selection. In respect of (2), I do not believe souls exist (other than as a figment of very many peoples' imagination), so they were not 'brought about', with the result that there can be no evidence about what or who could have brought them about.
