I’m just posting this to give people an update on what researchers are finding. More and more, so-called “junk DNA” is proving to be essential for life. Here, transposons, considered, generally, to be the “junkiest” of the “junk”, is found to have a rather central role in the development of a pond critter. Here is the write-up on PhysOrg. com.
If you look at the first comment at the end of the article, a blogger named “flag” writes:
“The label junk DNA is a testament to junk science.
It is obvious to anyone who actually understands evolution that no organism can ever contain 90% of useless DNA. It is simply impossible. Unused DNA would be lost in a very short time frame as it’s maintenance incurs huge costs.”
So, once upon a time, we were told that transposons show that the genome couldn’t possibly be designed because it had all this wasteful DNA around. Now, per ‘flag’, “it’s obvious … that no organism can ever contain 90% of useless DNA.” Life as a Darwinist must be fun: you’re never wrong. You only have to reverse what you say every once in a while.
