Egg surely is now on Ken Miller’s face in light of new scientific developments. But first, what did Miller claim:
“Intelligent design cannot explain the presence of a nonfunctional pseudogene, unless it is willing to allow that the designer made serious errors, wasting millions of bases of DNA on a blueprint full of junk and scribbles. Evolution, however, can explain them easily. Pseudogenes are nothing more than chance experiments in gene duplication that have failed, and they persist in the genome as evolutionary remnants of the past history…
and now, what does real science have to say (versus Darwinist speculations):
But definitely, the so-called psudeogenes are really functional, not to be considered any more as just “junk” or “fossil” DNA. Surely, many functional pseudogenes and novel regulatory mechanisms remain to be discovered and explored in diverse organisms.

So Ken Miller says of himself and his Darwinist friends, “we suck”. Far be it from me to disagree. Indeed!
