Re: Is evolution really the central theory for all of biology?

In general I do not time to respond to long, rambling posts. About the UCEs
however, it is not true that UCEs have been found to be important for
development and gene regulation. What you are repeating is evolutionary
conjecture from normal science, which presupposes evolution is true. The
only scientific findings we have to date suggest they are functionless.
Massive knockout experiments on mice revealed no problems, though extensive
fitness tests were performed. This strongly suggests that from an
evolutionary perspective, the UCEs are not functionally constrained. It
makes no sense on evolution that functionally unconstrained sequences would
be identical in distant species. This is an unambiguous falsifier and,
needless to say, was very surprising to evolutionists.
