Evolutionists have long cited pseudogenes as a type of “junk” DNA that demonstrates an unguided evolutionary origin of the genome, but what if this Darwinian mindset is setting us up to miss important biological functions of pseudogenes? On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin discusses how the research shows that pseudogenes are increasingly found to have function.
