Actually, evolution is quite rigorously proven.

And I think intelligent design is rigorously proven.


Intelligent design cannot be rigorously proven until we (a) prove the existence on earth of an intelligent designer during the necessary period and (b) prove the intelligence of the design.

And frankly, point (b) is going to be really tough - it would be easier to prove an insane or incompetent designer.

Evolution, on the other hand, is proven. We've seen it happen. Every facet of it. It does occur, it produces new species, it sends old species to extinction - sometimes because of rather subtle changes in the environment.
