There’s more going on in DNA and cells than the old Central Dogma predicted. The time has come to look beyond genes.
Richard Dawkins predicted that “a large fraction” of our genomes has no function, because, “The true ‘purpose’ of DNA is to survive, no more and no less.”
Collins refers to the “backward wiring” of the vertebrate eye, characterizing it as flawed from an engineering perspective.
Some defenders of evolutionary orthodoxy would have us believe that we’ve only found a handful of non-coding DNA sequences that have function.
Information is the stuff of life. Not limited to DNA, information is found in most biomolecules in living cells.
