Another important unexpected role for junk DNA

Darwinian “Scientists have called it “junk DNA.” They have long been perplexed by these extensive strands of genetic material that dominate the genome but seem to lack specific functions. Why would nature (or an Intelligent Designer) force the genome to carry so much excess baggage?”
As predicted by Intelligent Design theorists “researchers from Princeton and Indiana University have found that junk DNA may not be so junky after all. They have discovered that DNA sequences from regions of what had been viewed as the “dispensable genome” are actually performing functions that are central for the organism. They have concluded that Darwinian theory was incorrect the genes spur an almost acrobatic rearrangement of the entire genome that is necessary for the organism to grow.”
The term “junk DNA” was originally coined (by Darwinian biologists) to refer to a region of DNA that (they wrongly concluded because of their philosophical committment) contained no genetic information. Scientists are beginning to find, (as predicted by Intelligent Design theorists), that much of this so-called junk plays important roles in the regulation of gene activity.”
Italics are (obviously) my additions.
