False inference; your use of the word “therefore” is stupidly invalid and arbitrary. Tell us, where exactly is the logical contradiction in no motor made by man being more efficient than flagella motors and those flagella having evolved without intelligence involved?
Your premise is also false: the most energy efficient motors invented by man are electric motors with the most efficient being more than 98% energy efficient and can even potentially be made to be 99.99% energy efficient with superconductors while those evolved in living things are generally less than 98% energy efficient. for example:
"....myosin (a type of a molecular motor) converts chemical energy (i.e. ATP) to mechanical work with 90 percent energy efficiency....."
-and 90% is LESS than 98%
