So-Called Junk DNA and Ageing

Up yonder at Deception Pass, the hands at the Darwin Ranch have been caught several times doing sloppy science and lying for the Bearded Buddha about DNA. Their viperine tactics fooled many, especially those who are willingly deceived.

Remember the now-debunked claim that the chimpanzee genome is 98 percent similar to humans? It which was stitched together and contaminated. This refuted statement is still being proclaimed. Our main topic today is the duncical declaration that humans are saturated with "junk" DNA.

Using science and reasoning that thinking scientists should find opprobrious, researchers decided that parts of the human genome did not code for proteins and such. Therefore, DNA parts were useless leftovers from our alleged evolutionary past. This was based on their preconceptions, not exhaustive research. Like vestigial organs, "junk" DNA concepts have been quirted into submission for the most part.

A recent study on the process of aging examined telomeres (the ends of DNA strands), and found that yet another bit of alleged junk has an important purpose. Secularists, in their rush to promote evolution, have harmed medical science again. Fortunately, some researchers want to dig deeper instead of accepting the pronouncements of others. Their work is promising, but not yet complete. It would be mighty helpful to all if scientists would realize that our Creator put things in their places for reasons.
Telomeres are large parts of DNA that average anywhere between 5,000 to 15,000 bases long in the human genome. (Bases are like the letters of the genetic code.)

Zhu and his team have been studying a DNA region previously deemed “junk” called VNTR2-1. Its function seems to drive the activity of the telomerase gene. This is interesting because it is this sequence that prevents aging in certain types of cells and might help us understand how cancer occurs.

Because of this, it was thought that if a person had long telomeres then their aging was slowed down and they’d live longer. But this was found to be overly simplistic.
