The topic of so-called "junk" DNA (or, apparently disposable noncoding DNA, more neutrally) has come up endless times in various online debates. Often, someone will find a new article indicating a function for some bit of DNA, and declare that the "junk" hypothesis is dead and that those evil materialists were blinded by their evil materialism for ever believing it.
The situation is of course much more complex, so link/post articles, posts (both sides), etc. in this thread.
