Wouldn't you say it's a good thing that science does not get mired in dogma? The science behind DNA was in its infancy in the 1970's.<quoted text>The proposal that a random segment of genetic code could be inserted and result in functionality is absurd. It was assumed by all evolutionary biologists in the 1970's that ALL ERVs were nonfunctional... Until they were proven wrong. Now you're pretending that evolution predicts functional ERVs.
Do you think it would be harmful or helpful if religion could break free of dogma?
