Intelligent design can never be tested because it involves the idea of a higher being or a 'designer.' Science and testing can only include the natural and a non-specific designer is most definitely supernatural and therefore untestable. No matter how intelligent design is looked at, the theory includes a higher being so ultimately it can never be fully tested.

But even the parts of ID that can be scientifically tested are based on the idea of a designer. The bacteria flagellum is used as scientific evidence for ID, while at the backbone of the argument lies the fact that it was 'designed' by a non-specified 'designer' which, once again, can ultimatley not be tested or proven.
