The reason I don't like "intelligent design" is because the term itself is actually code for "theistic evolution." ID advocates don't necessarily support the biblical account of creation. Many, if not most, of them accept evolution as scientific fact, but just can't shake the idea that someone or something is behind it, perhaps even actively guiding the process.
But theistic evolution is not compatible with scripture. It can be refuted with one verse. In Romans 5:12, the apostle Paul tells us that "sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned."
Therefore, since death is an inherent part of evolution, and death didn't exist until Adam sinned, I can conclude with certainty that evolution, theistic or otherwise, is false.
