See, this source code of life is like the operating system for the organism. This is why you see various species, because the encoded operating system tells the organism what to do. This couldn't have been a result of evolution, because in order for the organism to evolve, the operating system had to be fully in place.
Can you imagine something more intricate than the most complex program running on a supercomputer being devised by accident through evolution—no matter how much time, how many mutations and how much natural selection are taken into account?
I think that DNA points to a Common Designer, so you would expect man and ape to share source code. It’s just like Microsoft Word and Microsoft Works. They may share some of the same source code but they are different programs that have the same designer(Microsoft). This is the same thing with mankind and other species, we share some of the same source code because we share a Common Designer.
Similarity (‘homology’) is not evidence for common ancestry (evolution) as against a common designer (creation). Think about a Porsche and Volkswagen ‘Beetle’ car. They both have air–cooled, flat, horizontally–opposed, 4–cylinder engines in the rear, independent suspension, two doors, boot (trunk) in the front, and many other similarities (‘homologies’). Why do these two very different cars have so many similarities? Because they had the same designer! Whether similarity is morphological (appearance), or biochemical, is of no consequence to the lack of logic in this argument for evolution.
If humans were entirely different from all other living things, or indeed if every living thing was entirely different, would this reveal the Creator to us? No! We would logically think that there must be many creators rather than one. The unity of the creation is testimony to the One True God who made it all (Romans 1:18–23).
"Junk DNA" is actually the "software" that allowed complex organisms to evolve,....
Within a chromosome or a genome, the "junk" DNA are those portions of the DNA for which no function has been identified. The term "junk" is recognized as something of a misnomer, especially in light of the fact that molecular biology is a young science and segments of DNA may function in additional ways that have not yet been discovered. Recent work, as of 2004, suggests that junk DNA may indeed perform unrecognized functions.en.wikipedia.org...

Again, science is trying to catch up to the Bible. In Genesis, God Created 3 times, verse 1,21 and 27. When He Created in verse 1, He Created the conditions for simple organisms to exist. This is why in verse 20 there wasn't another need for an act of Creation in order to bring forth life from the waters.
Genesis 1:20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
So God brought forth life from the waters, this life was Created in verse 1.
And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky."
What happened next is ASTOUNDING!!! God inserted the code that governs all life, that the waters brought forth abundantly.
Genesis 1:21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
In Genesis 1 God Created the conditions for bacteria to exist, He then brought forth this bacteria from the waters and added introns with the source code of life and then you see the explosion of various species.
This [having dna] couldn't have been a result of evolution, because in order for the organism to evolve, the operating system had to be fully in place.
