Are pseudogenes really purposeless junk DNA whose presence of identical copies in different species is an indicator of common descent and an argument against Creation? Or is the conclusion of purposeless unjustified? Explores the details behind this issue.
Explains the results of recent work on transposons, DNA sequences which move around in the genome. Improved understanding is revealing that these mobile genetic elements are more important than had previously been appreciated.
Provides a little background on natural selection and genetic drift, then explains how recent work has not supported the position of the neutralists who believe that most evolution takes place through genetic drift rather than through natural selection.
