I’ve heard that before and seen it discussed many times. What do you know about ‘junk DNA’, the historical original of the term, connections to neutral theory, mutational load and the long discussions in journals about it? Knowing that would really help in understanding if Intelligent Design theories really provide something differentiable.
And how does one predict what proportion of a genome should be ‘junk’ from a design perspective? I’ve never seen a quantitative argument from design but some proponents have suggested near 100% functionality. Do you agree? Why?
I guess when I say I’m looking for a positive idea of design, I need to clarify that I’m not asking about inspirational thoughts but rather concrete tests and ideas.
