Junk DNA, the sin of ENCODE and the sacredness of Darwin.

ICR have a useful article that highlights the response of some Darwinists to the ENCODE findings http://www.icr.org/article/7383/. It is interesting to see how protests against ENCODE use religious language. Apparently to do good science that challenges Darwinism is a 'sin', which shows that evolution is really a secular religion.

"ENCODE's biggest scientific sin was not being satisfied with its role as data provider; it assumed the small-science role of interpreter of the data." (Graur, D. et al. 2013. On the immortality of television sets: "function" in the human genome according to the evolution-free gospel of ENCODE. Genome Biology and Evolution).
