This question is addressed to ID and TE believers and anyone in-between. What role does God play in the history of man?

I see no other options. Sure, we could be ignorant of better
explanations, even Darwinism had to evolve although the main principle
of variation and selection remains.

ID's approach makes the conclusions and arguments rather weak because
it concludes design when we have eliminated known natural processes,
when a better conclusion would surely have been "we don't know". It's
through equivocation on terms like complexity, information and design
that ID confuses, misdirects.

Ask yourself, how does ID explain anything it concludes to be 'designed'?

Hint: It doesn't.
