Well, I agree with you that you were not a puddle of amino acids many million years ago. You were that puddle less than 100 years ago and will eventually go back to that state again (as will I and all other people on earth). There are things we cannot explain and will never be able to. Intelligent Design is a creation of human ego and reluctance to recognzie that we are no better than any animal, tree, or a piece of soil. Who designed God? Another onmi-potent architect or a morbid human brain? Humans are both "blessed" and "cursed" with having abstract mentality, which plays tricks on us all the time. In this sense, human kind is a strange experiment of nature.
