Intelligent Design By Any Other Name Is Still Intelligent Design

No one seriously thinks Brian Greene -- he of multiverse fame -- is an intelligent design proponent. I'm fairly certain he doesn't see himself as one. Yet he is speculating on the possibility of scientists being able to create their own universes . . . so maybe he should be called something like a proponent of intentional formation of natural universes theory. Regardless, NPR's All Things Considered recently had a story on all the speculation about this:

One day (far off, no doubt), it may be possible to go into a laboratory on Earth, create a "seed" -- a device that could grow into a universe -- and then there would have to be a way to get that seed, on command, to safely expand into a separate, infinite, unexplorable but very real alternate universe.
I wonder, how far off is this ability to intelligently design universes?
