ABSTRACT
The article reviews three principle arguments for intelligent design: the origin of life, the origin of species, and Michael Behe's functionalism. The author carries out this analysis by replacing God as the designer of the theory with extraterrestrial aliens. This heuristic devise is used to demonstrate both the limitations of design theory as well as the importance of religion's ability to keep science honest with what it does not yet fully know. The author also interacts with the opinions of other design theory researchers such as Stephen Meyer and William Dembski.
