Our soul is not made of matter, nor did it arise from matter or any DNA.

[T]heories of evolution which, because of the philosophies which inspire them, regard the spirit either as emerging from the forces of living matter, or as a simple epiphenomenon of that matter, are incompatible with the truth about man.
Pope John Paul II

Recommend you don’t get your science training from the movies, bro’. Perhaps what the movie was referencing is what is commonly said to be “junk DNA”.

Or if you take a couple of classes about basic biology you would learn that it actually strengthens the “myth” :rolleyes: of evolution.

And it interests me that people will gladly accept DNA and other biological inquires, but won’t accept the most founded scientific theory in biology, or science for that matter.

Whatever.
