But they get to that point from the assumption that the entire universe is also designed. That's the basic assertion that must be disproven first. Nitpicking at anything less is avoiding the bigger question.

No, pure nonsense. They are the ones claiming it is designed, so they are under an obligation to prove it. We are under no oblication to disprove it. Of course, unless you positively assert that it is not designed. But in the absense of evidence for design, you have to remain technically agnostic... this puts the burden of proof on design claimists.
