Actually I've never needed to bring up religion to demonstrate evolution. I can do that without a single reference to theism, then you only respond by whining about atheists.<quoted text>
For example, University of Chicago geneticist Dr. Jerry A. Coyne :
"Perfect design would truly be the sign of a skilled and intelligent designer. Imperfect design is the mark of evolution... we expect to find, in the genomes of many species, silenced, or 'dead,' genes: genes that once were useful but are no longer intact or expressed. These are called pseudogenes... the evolutionary PREDICTION that we'll find pseudogenes has been fulfilledamply. Indeed, our genomeand that of other speciesare truly well populated graveyards of dead genes"
Coyne, Dr. Jerry, Why Evolution Is True, pp. 67, 81
Now, please tell me how junk DNA is inconsistent with intelligent design... You cannot defend your position without bringing up religion.
The fact of the matter is that you're attempting to argue against evolution with a philosophical/theological argument for IDC. Those arguments fail scientifically, for instance total genome function being compatible with "TEH FALL".
Of course dumb design does not necessarily rule out a designer, it just rules out the claim that it was intelligent. Good design? God made it that way. Bad design? God made it that way. Or it was all that talking lizard's fault! The problem being that IDC doesn't make any scientific predictions of its own, but rather depends solely on anti-evolution arguments which all have their roots in creationism.
Don't blame us if ALL you have to argue against science with is theology.
We do not care.
