NY Academy of Sciences peer-reviewed paper acknowledges ID proponents

Renowned DNA researcher Andras Pellionisz wrote in One Believer’s Junk Is Another Believer’s Treasure; Quest for Predictive Scientific Theories on the Function of ‘junkDNA’

The national debate about Darwinism (D) contra Intelligent Design/Extraterrestrial Intelligence (ID/ET) centers on the nature of predictive and thus refutable scientific theories.

Most Darwinists erroneously predicted that 98.7% of the DNA was devoid of function (“junk”), while the ID/ET theory correctly predicted some yet to be decoded function of junkDNA.

ID proponents have been participating in the research of “junk DNA”, and it is ID theory which has inspired these proponents to explore what Darwinists have erroneously deemed junk.

I’ve been delayed in reporting that a peer-reviewed paper in the annals of the New York Academy of Sciences by Richard Sternberg gives an acknowledgement to several ID proponents. In On the Roles of Repetitive DNA Elements in the Context of a Unified Genomic-Epigenetic System it says:

I also thank Drs. Paul Nelson, Stanley Salthe, Jonathan Wells, and Todd Wood (alphabetical order)for their very helpful criticisms of the manuscript.

Congrats to all those involved.

ID theory has provided positive inspiration toward scientific inquiry and participating in the reversal of “the greatest mistake in the history molecular biology“, a mistake inspired by Darwinist dogma.

I’d like to thank an unnamed colleague and our mean-spirited critics at Denialism.com for reminding me to report on this. See here.

Don't forget: William Dembski and 3 IDers cited in a significant OOL peer-reviewed article by Trevors and Abel scordova
Things are getting better, first we have a finnish ID peer-reviewed paper, and now a peer-reviewed paper acknowledges ID theorists. And on the other hands, books are getting out criticizing aspects of Dariwnism from academic publishers (e.g. http://mitpress.mit.edu/catalog/item/default.asp?ttype=2&tid=11165) Also Behe's new book is coming within two months (http://www.amazon.com/Edge-Evolution-Search-Limits-Darwinism/dp/0743296206/ref=pd_bbs_sr_2/102-8630373-1201701?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1176339929&sr=1-2), it seems like Darwinists are not going to enjoy their time :D IDist
