Code as an Analogy of DNA?

And you don’t get more than you know.

(Dale Cutler) #365

Aargh. And I just returned insult for insult. Again.

(John Harshman) #366

It’s your chief argument. Don’t throw it away now.

(Dale Cutler) #367


It’s a major strongpoint of yours, as well – don’t deny it. :wink:

(John Harshman) #368

See? It’s the “I know you are, but what am I?” defense.

(Dale Cutler) #369

At least we’re consistent. (…not a good thing, in context.)

Settle down, boys, or I’ll turn you into newts!


The press has often been guilty of misrepresenting all non-coding DNA as junk DNA, even though these are different concepts and not considered equivalent in the very studies they reference. All junk DNA is non-coding DNA, but not all non-coding DNA is junk DNA.

Im having a problem seeing the connection.
