“Junk DNA” is a term used since 1972 by scientists to describe DNA which did not have any apparent function.
Evolutionists believed this was clear proof of evolution. The logic builds from copyright law. When trying to determine if two authors of a work, by chance, wrote the same work independently, or if one copied the other, you look for spelling or grammatical errors which one author could have inadvertently copied from the other author in the process of stealing the work. Many shared errors in both author’s works indicate they came from a common source.
Evolutionists applied this argument to pseudogenes (DNA which is said to be defective, or using our copyright law analogy, the spelling errors). So evolutionists looked for errors in DNA between species, and when they found them, they assumed there was a common ancestor (a common source, using our copyright analogy).
But a recent federal project involving over 400 scientists around the world has found that the “Junk DNA” actually holds at least four million gene switches that control how organs, cells, and other parts of living tissue behave. At least 80 percent of this DNA is active and needed, according to the article.
