Guys, GUYS. It's much easier than that[edit]

If God has created us, sure that Him would have left a signature somewhere, if not in the body in the DNA (sort of decoding it and the word YHWH appearing). That so far it has not appeared shows that: God is too humble for doing that (dubious knowing how He was in the OT), is embarrased to do that, or simply there's no God behind. Take your pick. --Panzerfaust (talk) 14:25, 15 October 2016 (UTC)

Unnecessary RNA editing[edit]

First, I think I found the relevant paper, but I'm not sure:

But secondly, how is this argument not counterproductive to the evolutionary argument? Unless the editing protein has other purposes (which I suspect, but don't see any indication of from this brief description or the opaque paper) then this would seem to imply that both the G-to-A mutation and the entire editing protein appeared at the same time, which is extremely unlikely and a likely vector of attack for an ID promoter.

(Edit) I found the Behrman paper (libgen, yay), but I can't find information anywhere else on the supposed editing enzyme (adenisone deaminase) being involved with anything other than digestion. Now I'm even more confused.
About that, knocking out ADAR2 does cause physiological alterations in mice [1] and is not by any means unnecessary. In addition, the third point about the "Odd biochemical pathways" needs an update [2] as it turns out that there good reasons not to make a 3'-5' DNA polymerase. It would be interesting for this article to address this article as well. Jagoe (talk) 12:14, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
