ENCODE Project Finds Mass Functionality for “Junk” DNA

Intelligent Design The Future show

Summary: On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze and Casey Luskin discuss the recent findings of the ENCODE Project, which has declared so-called “junk” DNA to be anything but. Much of the DNA that was previously supposed to be useless genetic material, left over from random mutations that have been acted upon by natural selection, has now been found to perform several vital functions—just as intelligent design proponents have been predicting for years. What does this mean for intelligent design, and for Darwinian evolution? To learn more, pick up a copy of Jonathan Wells’ Myth of Junk DNA.
