I didn't say "I don't care to know".
Dismissing ID because we don't know the identity of the designer is like junking the proposition that an architect designed the pyramid simply because we don't know his name and identity.
Even with the lets find out attitude, Evolutionary scientists have only presented ideas on as to how it may have happened, but have been able to replicate the process.
For example, consider the question "how did sexual reproduction evolve?" All I have found on google searches are a number of what may have happened scenarios....none of which have been observed or replicated. If an unproven hypothesis can pass off as science, then the ToE loses credibility as legitimate science.
But you know that information is separate from the ink its written with. The same applies to DNA, where the information is a separate entity from the DNA that holds it.
Because they are delusional, they only want to pick and choose the warm fuzzy parts that justify their delusion, disregarding all the contradictions that expose the lie. Just look at the post above, the poster picks the warm fuzzy parts of scripture, parts that judge and condemn those who dare not fall for the delusion. Why not post scripture that approves of murder, rape, and slavery
Deuteronomy 22:25-27 New Living Translation (NLT)
25 “But if the man meets the engaged woman out in the country, and he rapes her, then only the man must die. 26 Do nothing to the young woman; she has committed no crime worthy of death. She is as innocent as a murder victim. 27 Since the man raped her out in the country, it must be assumed that she screamed, but there was no one to rescue her.
Deuteronomy 22:28-29 New Living Translation (NLT) 28
“Suppose a man has intercourse with a young woman who is a virgin but is not engaged to be married. If they are discovered, 29 he must pay her father fifty pieces of silver.[a] Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he may never divorce her as long as he lives
Only self evident in this topic is that someone has no idea what he is talking about...
Speaking of intelligent design... this is one of occasion when creator could not make up his mind...

Be prepared to defend. Don't give up and never surrender.
Good luck to you sir and god speed...
And just to stay on topic, my belief doesn't matter, because it's self evident
Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!
But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good bull# story. Holy #!
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed. Results like these do not belong on the résumé of a Supreme Being. This is the kind of # you'd expect from an office temp with a bad attitude. And just between you and me, in any decently-run universe, this guy would've been out on his all-powerful ass a long time ago. And by the way, I say "this guy", because I firmly believe, looking at these results, that if there is a God, it has to be a man.
No woman could or would ever # things up like this. So, if there is a God, I think most reasonable people might agree that he's at least incompetent, and maybe, just maybe, doesn't give a #. Doesn't give a #, which I admire in a person, and which would explain a lot of these bad results.
