The people who are pushing Intelligent Design claim that they don't have any theory about—and don't really care—what or who the designer may be. I doubt that this is true. Were there evidence, for example, that advanced beings from another planet planted pre-designed life on earth, including us—one the possibilities suggested by the intelligent design proponents—it's hard for me to imagine that they would accept it. Can you really believe an intelligent design proponent more readily accepting the notion that we are essentially manufactured devices than that we are evolved biological beings? I can't.
