Proving evolution is also impossible

School Board member Eileen Roy said intelligent design is a religious idea that doesn't belong in a science class because, "It's not derived from the scientific method. It can't be tested, proved or disproved."
It is equally fair to believe that the theory of evolution cannot be tested, proved or disproved. In fact, when people take into account the true facts about evolution it is scientifically impossible. There are multiple arguments against evolution such as irreducible complexity as discussed in the book, "Darwin's Black Box," by Michael J. Behe.
Therefore, believing in evolution takes the same amount of faith as does intelligent design. If people want religious ideas out of a science class they will have to remove evolution as well.
