ID proponents have long predicted that functions would be uncovered for such non-coding DNA.
All of this calls to mind a comment from biologist John Mattick, a critic of the junk DNA paradigm.
Scientists watched microbes inherit extreme acid resistance in Yellowstone hot springs not through genetics, but through epigenetics.
Darwinist Jerry Coyne misunderstands design science. Intelligent design is two scientific inferences.
The design inference is obvious but often implicit, because explicit acknowledgement of design in biology carries with it substantial career risk.
