Humans More Complicated, Different from Nearest Ape Than Previously Thought

Or, to translate, once again biologists overestimated how much could be explained with the human genome.

In parsing these types of science stories, one must employ methods previously used to decipher jihadist messages---stripping away the religious rhetoric to read between the lies.

These days, the stories all seem to follow the "theological claim debunked---new theological claim made" format. Thus in this article scientists discover that they fundamentally misunderstood how the genome works in human biology, but now believe this new discovery will at last unveil the secrets of human disease.

Until the next story, when we hear that it's not the genes at all, but the proteins. Mark your calendar---you know it's coming.
