Those who read the Wired piece on junk DNA and anti-evolutionism will have noticed that both Francis Collins and I made an appearance (see here for more). It’s pretty clear that our views on genome evolution differ considerably, stemming perhaps from our larger views about how evolution works (see here). It then occurred to me that this is the second time our thoughts on genomes have been juxtaposed recently. The first was in a series of book reviews in Lab Times by Weanée Kimblewood. You can read the reviews here. It seems The Evolution of the Genome was well received; The Language of God, not so much. Of course, Collins’s book ranks #583 on Amazon.com; mine, not so much.
