It’s a running joke that any time some horrible person is in the news, Discovery Institute fellow David Klinghoffer is sure to pen a piece trying to link that person to the nefarious ways of evolution-defenders. He’s written such pieces about Hitler, the Columbine killers, the Holocaust museum shooter, and many other modern monsters.
Today’s headlines are dominated by talk of Osama bin Laden, so we get, on the DI twitter feed:
David Klinghoffer explains the connection between Osama bin Laden and “junk” DNA
And indeed, the post over at the Disco. ‘Tute complaints department is titled “The Osama/‘Junk DNA’ Connection.” The connection seems to be that Klinghoffer doesn’t know much about either topic.
If you want a good run-down on the DNA testing that is reported to have been run on bin Laden’s corpse, check out the excellent Christie Wilcox’s explainer.
