living in fairy tale land

You make a valid point. I would argue, however, that the fact that the laws of Nature display a deep underlying beauty and “hang together” very well (as I explained in my post, Beauty and the Multiverse ), points to a single Intelligent Designer of the cosmos. I think that this would be a sensible default hypothesis for ID to adopt. Only philosophy can make this conclusion certain beyond reasonable doubt, however.


Beauty is not a "fact". "hang together" is meaningless. The two put together don't point to squat. There's nothing sensible in ID and never will be. Philosophy cannot make such a stupid, baseless, so-called "hypothesis" and "conclusion certain beyond reasonable doubt". It takes actual evidence to make something certain beyond reasonable doubt.
