The author presents briefly Michael Behe's concept of irreducible complexity in biochemical systems. Next, he considers whether this concept has features which are characteristic of theories currently recognized as scientific. He examines whether Behe's concept is falsifiable, whether the design inference is permitted within science at all, and if so, whether design could be inferred from the findings of biological sciences. Finally, he shows that the theory of intelligent design isn't science stopper, and points to researches which can be conducted on its basis.
