I won't touch the "designed" part of that, but I agree insofar as I think it is fair to say that if we go out into space, anything we find that isn't already claimed by a sentient species is ours. And there's no particular reason to regret any supposed taint from humanity's touch (or whatever similar human-hating notion is involved) if none of it has any other purpose than what we give it, anyway.
