Oh joy. Denton. He had an epiphany since the 80's, but creationists still quote his early religious apologetics despite the fact he doesn't agree with them any more.Subby some more. I have to head to work now but I am dying to hook into this ribbish you posted on Sanfords refute.
From your link..
"These shared functional and nonfunctional DNA sequences help us to trace the common lineages of diverse organisms. Considering the striking physical variations among living things, it was a surprise for some scientists in the late twentieth century to discover the degree of commonality among genotypes. This was a key factor in changing Michael Denton’s mind on the viability of evolutionary theory."
ERV's having function is not a problem for evolution. Evolution predicts DNA changes can lead to function. Creo's claim otherwise. Therefore ERV's support evolution or ERV's are not ERV's and creationists still call them ERV's for... what reason? And do they have any other mechanism other than Jewmagic to account for them?What does this idiot have to say now that at least 80% of the genome is now known to be functional?
ERVs have some vital functions. This is going to turn into another vestigial organ fiasco.
