Some discoveries might be surprising from an evolutionary perspective, but not necessarily from a perspective of intelligent design.
Perhaps it won’t be long before everyone, critics included, looks at the “junk DNA” concept in the rear-view mirror.
This sea change in perspective is rapidly accelerating progress in experimental biology.
There’s more going on in DNA and cells than the old Central Dogma predicted. The time has come to look beyond genes.
Jumping genes used to be dismissed as junk DNA which in turn was held to be slam-dunk evidence for unguided evolutionary processes.
