Could ID contradict the bible and render it false? Yes. If Super Bob the Builder and his crew made the universe... then it would contradict the bible making it false.
Soo.. I'm confused on how to read your closing statement. Because it could be is why its not a possibility? At this point we have nothing absolutely nothing on how it all began on how life began only one truth according to science.. that it couldnt be ID... because... it can't be.
How is inexplicable odds evidence? Does the world just seem to not make enough sense to you, that magic seems like a very logical conclusion?
What does ID study now? How is it really a science? Do ID scientists uncover anything new that changes what they don't already "know"? Seriously?
You do know that ID doesn't say that superbob the builder made the universe, and ID is not now, and never will be at odds with the bible, right? ID is set in stone, it's not going anywhere, and that is not science, that is a belief held in place by religion, with any new evidence contrary to what is already written be dammed.
Since you seem to know science, you are aware that you can only prove something "is", you can't prove something "isn't". Sure, you can deduce what is true and false, by proving what is true, but the burden of proof is on the party that proposes a hypothesis.
Someone can't just say "I say unicorns are real, and you need to prove they are not, or you need to accept that they either are true, or atleast could possibly be true, until you, not me, can prove they aren't."
That's got to seem completely asinine even to you, especially when the subject is about unicorns and not religion, right?
So what's the difference? Does the word "religon" itself deserve automatic respect, because it's...well "religion"?
BTW, Do you believe that Cromagnon man existed? What about H.Erectus?
