"Junk" DNA Similar to Computer Memory?

One trait that atheists and evolutionists have when encountering information regarding intelligent design (especially from biblical creationists) is to ignore it and attack. For example, a recent post about the follies of secular astronomical predictions was ignored by an uneducated tinhorn who wanted to be smarter than everyone else in the room — he wanted to talk about an asteroid instead. Similarly, we get challenged at The Question Evolution Project by atheopaths who ignore the content of the posts, change the subject and (wait for it...) attack. It's who they are and what they do. As we shall see, this kind of thing happens in professional circles as well as from social media nitwits.


Evolutionists attack but are given the inconvenient facts and are refuted

The book Contested Bones dealt with, well, bones. Three pages of it involved other failures of evolution. What's a fundamentalist Darwinoid to do except ignore the majority of the text and attack those three pages? Sure, that's how scientific discourse works in the secular world nowadays. The complaint was yet another bit of dysteleology (we looked at this concept regarding the panda's "thumb"), where "We reject the Creator, but he wouldn't do it that way, therefore, evolution. Here, the risible claim is that there is too much redundancy in DNA.


After this nonsensical argument based on personal preference, ignorance, and prejudicial conjecture, I would have moved on. Well, maybe I would have added that even if the claim was true, computer systems have redundancy, and we're talking about life here. That's my opinion.

However, in the spirit of Proverbs 26:5, the challenges were answered with some devastating material. Seems like secularists would learn to clam up instead of getting mouthy with their uninformed personal opinions about things like DNA, which are not fully understood. Turns out that this "junk" DNA works like computer memory. Uh, oh. The Master Engineer is vindicated again, and evolutionists are refuted as usual.
Chris Rupe co-authored the book Contested Bones with John Sanford to tell about the inadequate evidence for human evolution. The book is almost entirely about bones and the fossil record, but there are 3 pages in that book that refute claims by evolutionary biologists that the human genome is badly designed because of repetitive DNA elements known as Alus.

Some 10-11% of the human genome is composed of repeats of a specific 300-base pattern called an Alu. Evolutionists claim this is bad design. Their reasoning goes something like this: ‘You only need one copy of a phone book in a house, maybe a few at most, certainly not millions of copies. Therefore the 1 million copies of Alus in the human genome is worthless junk. It doesn’t even code for something. Therefore Alus are bad design. Since it’s bad design, there is no reason to believe there is an Intelligent Designer.”
