Are we not the same as most of the other Earthling's. Even the birds and fish - We're similar!!😊


I think you are missing the point.

The point is that DNA is a fundamental component of almost all living organisms, acting as the repository of genetic information necessary for life processes. There’s no way for it to gradually come into being in a step-by-step Darwinian way.

While DNA and computer code both serve as mediums for encoding complex instructions and information, they operate in fundamentally different realms—biological versus digital. The analogy is useful for understanding the complexity and organization of genetic information, but the processes and contexts in which they function are distinct.

DNA and computer code share several similarities, making the analogy between them quite insightful.

Bears hibernate. Herpes viruses lysogenize. Worms form a dauer stage. Insects enter diapause. Amphibians aestivate. Birds go into torpor. All of these are words for the exact same thing: a dormant state that organisms can reverse when conditions are favorable.

How the Myth of Junk DNA Hindered Science - Andrew McDiarmid


For decades, we’ve been told that only a tiny percentage of DNA is functional and that the vast majority is useless junk.
