Ahh, well even with chemical reactions, how could that create something as complicated as the human eye. And how could it make everything work together to replenish resources? That seem like an awful lot of cooperation between reactions..

However, I can return to the psychological argument I posed in that as you stated yourself, you cannot rule that argument out and so I can apply that to your biblical quote by saying if you believe hard enough in something, you'll eventually think it's there even if it isn't. In other words, placebo effect. This brings us back to where we started before when I initially stated my psychological argument so by posting your biblical quote, it's done nothing.
I believe that any information presented for this issue would lead to a circulatory argument..

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven
