“It is better to ask some of the questions than know all of the answers.”

Having recently joined this forum, I have been told that it is customary to write an introduction thread.
I’m an agnostic who’ve decided to take the concept of teleology in nature - or intelligent design, if you will - on an intellectual spin. Suppose the first life on Earth was intelligently designed with its future evolution in mind. What would follow from this conjecture? Does it open any interesting new areas of inquiry? How far can one take it before reality starts getting in the way?
I’m not interested in “toppling materialism” or influencing educational policy. I don’t consider my views as science, and I don’t think they should be taught in schools.
I don’t think I’ve got everything figured out, and I’m not here to convince anyone of the errors of their ways. I’m looking to have my views critically examined from unexpected angles and to be exposed to material I wouldn’t have found on my own.
This forum looks like a good place do to that, and I’m looking forward to participating.
