These claims represent a classic but false “junk DNA” argument against intelligent design.
According to Erika DeBenedictis, “one of the big limitations of biology are the basic building blocks themselves.”
Dr. Miller explores more problems facing the idea that life began as strings of RNA.
Any evolving system of RNAs would quickly include almost exclusively RNAs that performed no biologically useful actions.
Without all of the described investigator interventions, a system of replicating RNAs could never emerge or even sustain itself.
