|So why do you claim junk-dna, generally, has no function?|
Because Junk DNA generally has no function.
In round figures about 5% of our genome directly codes for proteins. A further 5-10% is conserved and so likely has a function other than direct coding for proteins. The remaining 85-90% is junk with no specific function.
The articles ID people, like Sal Cordova, promote are about new functions discovered for the 5-10%.
The ultimate truth is that there is no ultimate truth.
