Could those intelligent design folks be on to something?

I just ate a passionfruit and it got me to wondering how such a fantastic plant could be. It's hideously ugly when ripe, the pulp looks like snot surrounding weevils, and tastes unbelievably beautiful. How could something so delightful be a chance of evolution, and not the work of some devine hand?

Now if only said devine hand would make the vines hardy to -50C and produce in a short and cool growing season, that would truly be a miracle.
