A New "ID is Science" Tactic

At least, one I haven't seen before.
ID is not a theory, it is a simple chemical, biological and mathematic test which will in future years relegate evolution to the dung heap of history.

...It appears the Discovery Institute has an even better way of claiming ID is science; change the meaning of "science."
Attempts to locate methodological “invariants” that provide a set of
necessary and sufficient conditions for distinguishing true science from pseudoscience have failed.10 Most philosophers of science now recognize that neither verifiability, nor testability (nor falsifiability), nor the use of lawlike explanation (nor any other criterion) can suffice to define scientific practice.

What is this "science" of which you speak?
