How Can One NOT Believe in God After Seeing This?

Hi there,

Alexander Tsiaras is an associate Professor of Medicine and Chief of Scientific Visualization at Yale University in the Department of Medicine (this guy seems to have contributed to the invention of the MRI machine). He carried out a detailed algorithmic study of fetal development and its sheer mind-blowing complexity. According to this Professor, small parts of this magical world are slowly surfacing and just these bits of information about fetal development have made it extremely hard for him in NOT attributing it divinity (this is despite the fact that we still know so little about it). In other words, how can you say there is no God, no Designer when confronted with such concrete and mind-blowing design?

The following video is his talk at TED where he illustrates fetal development through breath-taking medical visualization:

Even though I am a mathematician, I look at 
[fetal development] with marvel: How do these
instruction sets not make mistakes as they build
what is us? — Alexander Tsiaras
