You are the scientist, DS.  You are responsible for devising the test.

Well, I'm not a scientist, but I think I've got an idea for a test:

Take two members of the same species that have been geographically and reproductively isolated for a long period of time (the longer the better), sequence their genomes and compare them.

My prediction is that the coding and non-coding sequences (basically all sequences) will show an equal amount of evolutionary constraint.

Please define "evolutionary constraint."

Predict the expected results that would falsify your hypothesis.
