When I a designer like myself creates an ID artifact there can be no doubt that in many cases there is CSI. It is the blueprint artifact methaphor.
To reiterate a comment made on the ARN board, an object does not have CSI merely because it was made by man. Dembski's definition of CSI requires that one show that a non-intelligent nature could not create the object, i.e., that it could not be an object resulting from regular and chance events.
Note that if a non-intellligent nature did create life and, eventually, man, then there has been a chain of regular and chance events that resulted in the objects that have been made by man. The probability of such a chain can not be smaller than Dembski's Universal Probability Bound of 10^-150, i.e., it cannot be "complex." One cannot deduce that man is the product of an intelligent designer merely because man is an intelligent designer.
