How Would Living Things Be Different If...

...they were intelligently designed by (non-divine) aliens, as opposed to a deity of some kind? Why is it not possible to confuse divine design with alien engineering? Why can't the intelligent designer just be a Martian?

A (serious!) question for ID proponents, of course. A good way to see the flaws in an argument is to take it more seriously than its own adherents do.
