  1. I had wondered about your long periods of silence. Glad to hear that they were not you being glum and inactive, but that the time was put to good use.

  2. This is great news. It will be especially interesting to see responses when it is published.

    1. I think we can start right now guessing what the DI folks will say about it, and do so with great accuracy.

    2. @Joe

      I've already thought of that. I have a section in the last chapter titled "No comfort for intelligent design creationists" where I explain why they are wrong about junk DNA. I'm pretty sure that will silence any criticism. :-)

  3. Hooray! You should now start a GoFundMe to send a free copy to every molecular biologist and science writer.

    1. Are you kidding me? They're the only people who might buy my book!

    2. Why should they buy your book? They already know there's no such thing as junk DNA, which is a name for sequences of unknown function.

  4. Congratulations and best wishes! By now, you have shared so much knowledge with the Sandwalk regulars that they may belong to the small set of people who can't really learn much motre from the book. I'm planning to order it nevertheless.

  5. Congrats on the publication 'evolution". Although it seems all design. Well if theres a chapter on ID then already the book enlarges the discussion since there can be a rebuttal and probably will be.

    1. 'Well if theres a chapter on ID'

      It's a book on science, not your favorite unsupported by reality myth.

  6. I'm excited to read about this! Finally an actually useful, scientifically accurate book among the sea of junk books on junk DNA! Best wishes, and I look forward to purchasing it and reading it ASAP!
