Headline: No Such Thing As 'Junk RNA'

New research has found that very short RNA strands, as small as 15 nucleotides, are not junk as evolutionists had expected but instead perform regulatory roles. As one writer explained:

Tiny strands of RNA previously dismissed as cellular junk are actually very stable molecules that may play significant roles in cellular processes, according to researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute.

Many of these so-called usRNA molecules interact with proteins that in turn interact with other RNA molecules that regulate cellular processes.

All of this was a big surprise to evolutionists but since evolution is a fact they know that it blindly arose, one way or another. The only remaining question is how it evolved, but that is less important than knowing that it did evolve. That's what scientific progress is all about.

  1. Cornelius, it is interesting that you would be trumpeting molecules (very short RNAs) that are the very antithesis of the "high-CSI", extremely low probability fable that ID supporters cling to.

    You should run some numbers sometime, and estimate how many genomes it would take to find one of these usRNAs.
