fact - the sun is a yellow star.  This is not science.  This is a fact.  It is provable.

Hypothesis - the sun is yellow because it is made of melted yellow crayons.  This is science.  It is a testable hypothesis.

You, like most non-scientists, are confusing the two.

Evolution is a fact.  It is observed in the wild and in the lab.  Speciation is a fact.  It is observed in the wild and in the lab.
Evolution is also the mechanism for the fact of evolution.  It is a testable hypothesis.

ID is not a fact.  There is no proof of a designer or a designer affecting ANYTHING in the universe.

ID as a mechanism is not a testable hypothesis.  There is no evidence that will convince an IDist that ID is not true.  There is no research program.  There is not even the beginnings on one and every leading light of ID admits this.

Every statement is decided on its own merits.  Just saying, Science has problems does not in any way shape or form mean that ID is correct.  ID must be decided on its own merits... if you can find any WE WOULD BE THRILLED TO HEAR THEM.

I know you probably don't get this.  But every single person in this forum would be thrilled if someone would come up with a testable hypothesis for ID, because then we could do the work and figure it out once and for all.

So, so you have anything like this?

Ignored by those who can't provide evidence for their claims.
