This is something that can not be currently answered. The answer relies on a leap of faith, that i and many others are not willing to make.
I always ask who created the creator. The Religious will argue the creator just i"s". But this defies the logic that you must have a creator, you will go round in circles until you are prepared to take the leap in faith..
If I'm not religious but believe intelligent design has possibilities am I therefore religious or scientific
what starts from nothing?

You sound like a Deist.
What type of deist you will have to find out on your own. you may be a Christian Deist, modern Deist, or Classical deist.
The best part about deism is there is no one that can give you a hard time about not fitting mold of what they think you should be.
There are few sins in deism.
And no hell and damnation.
Some deists see design in nature and purpose in the universe and in their lives (Prime Designer). Others see God and the universe in a co-creative process (Prime Motivator). Some deists view God in classical terms and see God as observing humanity but not directly intervening in our lives (Prime Observer), while others see God as a subtle and persuasive spirit (Prime Mover).
