Intelligent Design Inscrutable Ontology Theory

Intelligent Design, or ID, is a "theory" which postulates that the universe and the things that live in it must have been created by an intelligent designer. However, the name "Intelligent Design" leaves out a critical aspect of the theory: Life, the Universe, and Everything are just too darn complicated for science to ever figure out the mechanisms by which they were brought into existence.

Therefore, I propose the name be amended to the Intelligent Design Inscrutable Ontology Theory, or IDIOT for short. This will cause less confusion as it better summarizes what the "theory" is all about.
