If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

A Christian fucktard at a chess website wrote for someone else: "Your statement - " but later this was confirmed in dramatic fashion by the discovery of a quite arbitrary genetic code that is almost identical across all living organisms." could just as easily be because a creator uses similar code because it's the most efficient way to create something." This is what I wrote for the uneducated moron.

"could just as easily be because a creator uses similar code because it's the most efficient way to create something."
Translation: The Magic Man did it.
Your idea, besides being ridiculous, doesn't work for ERVs. Look it up.
Oh wait. You can't look it up because education makes you science deniers cry.
The most accurate explanation would be a copy and paste job from a real biologist. Of course you won't read it or if you did read it you wouldn't be able to understand it. Here it is anyway:
"We also harbor dead genes that came from other species, namely viruses. Some, called 'endogenous retroviruses' (ERVs), can make copies of their genome and insert them into the DNA of species they infect. (HIV is a retrovirus.) If the viruses infect the cells that make sperm and eggs, they can be passed on to future generations. The human genome contains thousands of such viruses, nearly all of them rendered harmless by mutations. They are the remnants of ancient infections. But some of these remnants sit in exactly the same location on the chromosomes of humans and chimpanzees. These were surely viruses that infected our common ancestor and were passed on to both descendants. Since there is almost no chance of viruses inserting themselves independently at exactly the same spot in two species, this points strongly to common ancestry."
-- Jerry Coyne, University of Chicago biologist
My point is those ERVs we have in common with chimpanzees can't be explained by the childish "The Magic Man did it" fantasy because there is no reason a fairy with a magic wand would magically insert ERVs in the exact same locations of two species. The only possible explanation is those ERVs were inherited from the common ancestor of human apes and chimpanzee apes.
Any child could understand this. Unfortunately the science deniers will never be able to understand. Their disease can't be fixed.
Professional idiots have tried to lie about this evidence. Not easy to lie about this one so what they do is try to change the subject. They say "the ERVs are functional therefore the evidence is wrong." It doesn't matter if that's true or not. That's not the point of this evidence. What matters is the ERVs were inherited from a common ancestor. These ERVs (about 16 of them unless more have been discovered) were not there when the creature evolved (or according to the science deniers when they were magically created) therefore the magic fairy had nothing to do with it.
I could use puppets to help science deniers understand but even that wouldn't work.
One more thing: There is a YouTube video that explains the whole thing in extreme detail. Here's the video and a quote from that video. Recommended for normal people. The science deniers would not be able to understand.
"If you run the numbers with the assumption that ERVs can only insert in 1% of the genome, i.e. highly nonrandom, you still get enormously low probabilities with only 16 ERVs. So even if insertion is highly nonrandom, getting the thousands of matched ERVs between all primates is unbelievably unlikely just like I show in the video (don't believe me, do the math)."
"Endogenous Retroviruses (ERVs) are the relics of ancient viral infections preserved in our DNA. The odd thing is many ERVs are located in exactly the same position on our genome and the chimpanzee genome. There are two explanations for the perfectly matched ERV locations. Either it is an unbelievable coincidence that viruses just by chance inserted in exactly the same location in our genomes, or humans and chimps share a common ancestor. It was our common ancestor that was infected, and we both inherited the ERVs. ERVs provide the closest thing to a mathematical proof for evolution. And remember, ERVs are just one of the millions of FACTS that support the theory of evolution. Think about it."
