Saying that Noncoding DNA is somehow indicative of evolution is a crap argument. Also stating that functionality of DNA that we don't completely understand is indicative of a creator or god is equally crap.
Yet the papers clearly indicate intelligence behind the encoding.
If anyone is going to find the existence of god. It will be a scientist.
Verse three points to the basis of this “blind faith” – and tempts me into a discursus on “intelligent design.” It reads, “By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.” In other words, what you see ain’t all we got. There is more to life and this world than mortar and wood and nails, more than DNA and atoms and particles, there is supernatural intention, design, and purpose. And that supernatural intention, design, and purpose belong to God!

To me, the idea that random mutations in cells would perfect genetic code, is like saying the computer software that we use is randomly generated and evolves itself.
Of course the genome is created. Thats one reason we call it "encoded". Its not Genetic "scrambled eggs". Its "code".
Living, microbiological, "code".
Thousands of years of natural selection have given Tibetans an advantage—they have evolved to cope with their extreme environment.
With an average elevation of 13,000 feet above sea level, Tibet has some of the thinnest air on the planet, with 40 percent less oxygen than is found at sea level.
Recent research shows that Tibetans, who have lived isolated in these high altitudes for thousands of years, enjoy a genetic variation that keeps their hemoglobin levels in a normal range. A variation of EPAS1, a gene that is sometimes associated with increased athleticism, causes an enzymatic change in the way oxygen binds to blood and is transported around the body.
The EPAS1 found in Tibetans is the fastest example of human adaptation ever recorded—in 3000 years, the frequency of the gene grew from 10 percent to 90 percent in Tibetans, says Rasmus Nielsen, an evolutionary biologist at University of California–Berkeley. To put that time frame in perspective, lactose tolerance in humans, a trait that about 80 percent of Europeans have, developed over a 7500-year period. "The interesting thing to think about is that a lot of people would have had to die in that period for the allele frequency to change like that," Nielsen says—making it one of the clearest examples of natural selection in humans.
I for one do not believe that an ancient civilization would inscribe outright lies on their walls and tablets for all to see throughout history as many scientist seem to indicate.

A Creator is becoming impossible to deny. As John 1 states, we are created with WORD.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.
