Intelligent design, as i define it, is the study of any organism or biological sequence, that is staistically incapable of ceating itself, or being the result of natural selection acting on variation(which some things are). If no logical pathway of evolution can be concieved and the statistical odds are largely against the organism in question forming itself, we can argue with reason that an outside influence was involved in creating this organism. that outside influence can be defined as the intelligent designer. the identity of the designer is irrelevant, the fact that the organism exists with help from an outside force holds that it was created. the higher intelligence could be some form of extra terrestrial, or could be a divine being namely God.
the mathematical odds of something not happening are 1 in 10 to the power of 50.the mathematical odds of DNA being the result of sponatneous generation( forming itself) are 1 in 10 to the power of 67(A.J. White, "Uniformitarianism, Probability and Evolution), thus we can conclude that DNA did not create itself, and the only other logical outcome is that it was created or the result of intelligent design
