If ID is lacking in evidence and therefore through simple logic and parsimony deemed false. Perhaps the designer/designers (if there is one) did not leave any,(evidence) that is.

So your argument is that you prefer to ignore parsimony because you don't think your fish care one way or another? Being a sentient person with concerns more advanced than a goldfish I don't agree with your assessment, although you are welcome to model your philosophy after a fish with a brain weighing 0.097 grams.

And if such intelligence does look on us like fish, is it any wonder our primitive arrogance and self importance keeps them amused.

If that is the case it would be all the more amusing if, from our perspective, the fish chose to be "humble" and think like the scum on the walls of their bowl.

There is no excuse to act stupider than we are because other things "get by" with less than what we are capable of. There is a difference between arrogance and healthy self-esteem.
