Yes, but that knowledge is not needed, so someone who didn't know it was created, would still be able to describe it's functions, and the interactions of it's various parts, just like scientist do with biological entities.

Sorry, but no. If one does not acknowledge that it was created, then it would have to be a naturally occurring object. In which case, one could not discern any purpose.

I'm not sure what appealing to counter-intuition here is about? Are you suggesting that the human existence, that universe was product of a cosmic accident, a fluke, while true, is counter-intuitive?

If so, what would be the false intuitive assumption?

Except of course in what he reveals in his work. The question of God is more about the story, than the author.

Please give examples of "what he reveals in his work".

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