Humans make internal combustion engines, digital computers, space rockets, wheels, light bulbs, electric motors.  Lots of the things that we make are things that are also arguably 'irreducibly complex', in other words they can't evolve - which is probably why we don't see them in nature!

(1) Light bulbs, etc., don't reproduce; they don't evolve in the same sense that biological systems evolve. That is at least one reason we don't see them in nature.
(2) It's the IDists who say that irreducibly complex biological structures can't evolve. See: CB200:Irreducible Complexity
