Exactly, like with the theory of evolution and intelligent design. If the same amount of time was put towards the proof of intelligent design as with the theory of evolution, the atheists wouldn't have a leg to stand on.
Well the Intelligent design people had a couple of thousands of years working on their story. The scientists only ~160 years since Darwin wrote his 'On the Origin of the Species'. So I'd say we should give the scientists another 1900 years before we make any conclusions.
