What do Evolutionists really mean by "Intelligent Design?"


For example: if you believe in Einstein's "Big Bang Theory" - then wouldn't the universe/cosmos had to be "Intelligent" enough in order to bring itself into existence? I've oftentimes heard Evolutionists say "we're here because of an accident," but I've never heard any scientist use the word "stupid" to describe our origins. What's your take?

    Great answer. Yes, this is why when we see a chicken and an egg, it is in our inherent nature to question which came first; however, we forget that the chicken did not design the egg, but just simply laid it.

    Precisely my point...then why do we even use the term "intelligent design?" Good answer.

    Human beings are bound to look upon the creation of the universe and the development of evolutionary life through an anthropomorphic prism. We have nothing with which to compare ourselves and make assumptions that follow our own small understanding.
