We know that there is such a thing (and therefore that such a thing is physically/metaphysically possible) as intelligent life, but we do not know there is such a thing as a creator of universes. This is again an evidence based distinction.

This is too vague, Thommo, because it depends what you mean by "creator of universes". You might either mean "god", or "the hyperspace continuum and the law of quantum gravity" (which gave rise to this and other big bangs). Which is it? Or, perhaps you believe that this universe has always existed, in spite of evidence for the big bang creating it.

The big bang is a theory about the origin of our local representation of the universe, not the universe as a whole.

Yeah, sure, but that is just an admission that the big bang theory does not make sense as a cosmology. It needs my cosmology.
