I stand by my original comment though; if there was an intelligent creator then they probably didn't do it deliberately and never imagined anything like us, and we could never find out if it happened anyway; so it's probably a totally pointless conversation.
If we had been created as we are now by an intelligent species then they'd have at least some involvement and leave some record either with us directly or in the structure of our DNA, so the only possible 'creator' is maybe an astronaut landing on young earth and leaving behind some bacteria which spread and took over. Either deliberately or accidently. I think it could have to be deliberate to be 'creation', but even then there is absolutely no way we could figure out if that happened. It's like panspermia; interesting thing to have a guliver about, but I don't see how it could ever be known.

The accidental astronaut or panspermia ideas would only explain how life arose on Earth, not how life arose.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

That's probably why I vomit every time someone lists Panspermia among life origin theories
