I think the implications of the word intervention may be a bit confused. We all, everyone on this planet have limited intellectual abilities, by design. I myself am guilty of this, but, that shouldn't stop anyone from trying.
Interesting comments! Are you implying purposeful intervention in the evolutionary process on earth leading to modern man?
I see the universe as a canvas that has been used many times. some successful, some left to dissolve back into the vastness of space, some new artistic galaxy forming, and a old one fading away. Why does it have to be them intervening into our reality, when the opposite may be just as true? Maybe its them who are evolving into us, in the form of a spirit inhabiting a physical body?
But what intelligence lies behind the design? Who or what would intervene in our evolution and why? Or, is the universe an entity in itself?
With science dedicated to proving that everything is an accident...
...As I said in an earlier post, the way the universe is set up--that is to say, the laws of nature--are such that the emergence and development of life are all but inevitable.
The unnecessary hypothesis is a Creator, but that is another argument--one I believe you said you didn't want to get into.
Do you have personal belief or inclination that may be helpful to me?

Also why isn't it still happening? They explain away the single cell start by creating this theory of a perfect primordial soup to answer why it is not still occurring.
Life, once started, has, as its purpose, evolution.
Life must try in a multitude of ways to reach higher levels of complexity and intelligence.
That there is a purpose in this struggle to achieve something that is, I think, far beyond where it is today. It appears to me, that the universe supports this effort.
I do not believe that we humans are the "end all" of evolution. In fact, I believe that we are evolving now.
Is it just the inherent characteristic of the universe that gives rise to life, or is the universe a form of intelligence using life/evolution/us to discover itself?
You speak of a "Conscious entity" you believe in. Is this entity within the living or from without and acting as a director? I believe you touched on this but I was not clear on your meaning.
Light is aware. Here is a video to prove that light is aware. It changes properties based on the fact it is being observed so it is aware!
Wow eh? I know this vid is sort of childlike with cartoon but it gets the point across:
The ending is the best part
