"No, because no one on the side of sanity believed in ‘junk’ DNA, but the evolutionary religion sure did."

The definition of Junk DNA is "a section of DNA for which there is no known function"

Unless you can specify the function of every single piece of DNA, then by definition it is unknown.

I don't think you really understand the words you are using.

I recommend reading through this overview and trying again.

I don’t need to read anymore, actually, for a simple textbook definition can be rewritten by whoever holds the typewriter, and the use of the term has always been more than the simple phrase of “ DNA that exists that we do not know the usage for”, it has always had the context that it is an evolutionary leftover.

Just like the Appendix used to.

And Tonsils, too.
