Intelligent Design is "not science"

According to the UK government.

As someone who believes in a six day creation (but who is not a young earther) I actually think this is the right decision to make.

The issue is not about fairness or ideologies, but a basic question of what science consists of. Both creationism and intelligent design result not from scientific inquiry but from a presuppositional faith. You cannot prove either creationism or intelligent design by scientific inquiry.

Science should only be concerned with what can be proved either empirically or through complex theoretical structures.

And that is what science is all about, in all its flawed glory.
