To pick a major nit here:

Just to be clear, ID does not propose a supernatural designer. It could as well be a space alien or whatever, it is not limited to the supernatural.

That is not clear. ID proposes that living things, are too complex to have evolved by completely natural processes. A natural space alien would, under this theory, also be too complex to have evolved naturally. ID necessarily requires a supernatural explanation.

Chris, you are not separating "features" of a theory from it's implications.

You are absolutely correct that the implications of ID get you to a supernatural explanation.

ID theorists are mainly focused on the molecular level . . . even so, I don't think a space alien would fall under the theory until we had one to study.
