|But I do mention intelligent living things likely having been here for several billion years, so that the time scale used for all else in between is what is already used in science.|
Were there "intelligent designers" around billions of years ago then?
What do you consider to be an "intelligent designer"? Do they have to have a beard and be a he who magically zaps stuff into existence with their finger sort of thing?
Why are you asking us? You won't even take responsibility for defining the terms you use?
No wonder no one takes you seriously.
And the title is "Theory of Intelligent Design" not "Theory of the Intelligent Designer" hence you are expecting a whole other theory, which is easier for you to argue has a religious deity in it than the one that the premise of the theory specifies. I'm setting a good example, but not getting muddled by it, then off chasing a red-herring.
The theory of intelligent design holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection.
