Science cannot prove that intelligent design or creation, of the universe or biological organisms or their building blocks, are or were impossible.

Correct, but non controversial.

1) Science can't ever "prove" anything. It provides evidence in support of explanations, but that is never at the level of "proof". Thus it could provide evidence that abiogenesis is possible, and lots of people are doing that. What is the evidence supporting the notion of intelligent design?

2) Nobody, not even you, can prove a negative, which is basically what you are saying when you say something is "impossible".

Boring.

Well, Kris has shown us his knowledge, and been found wanting. And I was hoping for a sophisticated arguement.
