"The evidence for unintelligent design, as I have stated, would be the absence of organized matter and the absence of predicatable laws governing the same."
That's not true. I already stated that the test of my theory is the existence of organized matter that behaves according to predictable laws. If we find that, then my theory has been verified. If we don't, then it has been falsified. You don't get to say what my theory tests for a priori.

People keep forgetting that Fester Chugabrew has previously stated that he starts with the assumption that he is correct, and concludes that any observations must be in line with his correctness. He has openly admitted previously that he holds a position that is completely non-falsifiable, yet refuses to accept that non-falsifiable explanations are fundamentally worthless.

When an object is intelligently designed, it by necessicity entails the organization of matter for the purpose of having it perform consistently and according to the purpose the designer intended. One might find an argument for unintelligent design in the works of certain modern artists, but even these, though they may attempt to demonstrate unintelligent design, nevertheless fail, for by their attempts to denote the unintelligent, they have by default engaged an element of design.
If you are attempting to convince someone of the sensibility of your arguments it does little good to posit a fake theory that makes a mockery of conventional meanings and has no basis in reality. The presence of organized matter that behaves according to predictable laws is a reality, and it is best explained by intelligent design.
