Intelligent design simply says some things we see around us, especially living things, show clear evidence of design. Anything that could not have formed in the wild by chance alone, came to exist by design. Classic intelligent design theory does not try to identify the Design-er. But it does point out that some intelligent entity must have designed the stuff of life. (And maybe other things besides, though today intelligent design concentrates on biology, not astronomy or the earth sciences.)
