Well if there is, he's made a bloody piss poor job of it.
If the designer made us, and we screwed up then it's a poor design.
If the strong force was just a bit stronger than the weak force, or if the electromagnetic force was just a big weaker than the gravitational force, or if the universal gas constant was just a bit larger or if the speed of travel of electromagnetic radiation was just a bit slower, or if the fresh water was not separated from the salty water, or if the earth was a bit farther from the sun, or (as the theory goes) if the collision that caused the moon never took place, or…etc., than helium may not have formed, stars may not have formed, solar systems may not have formed, galaxies may not have formed, earth may not have formed, the moon may not have formed and most importantly, life on earth may not have formed.But all these things did form, as well as trees of various kinds, animals and, through pre-determined evolution (Quranic understanding), eventually humans. And yet after successfully creating all these things, the designer somehow “screwed up” when it came to humans? Some how, I doubt this.
It is logically impossible to prove the designer's absense since there is always the counter-argument "you are only saying that because, as part of his design, He wants you to.
He could equally have ensured that evolution doesn't happen by simply ensuring that the rate of mutation was zero.
