No wonder Job wrote, “Who among all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this?”2 As in other cases where a precise balance of supplied materials is required, DNA replication reflects purposeful creation through a wise Designer.

Thus, the microprocessor is an important player in keeping harmful mutations from developing in the cell by controlling transposable element activity. And it is possible that the RNA fragments produced from this process may be used in some aspect of genome regulation. Many processes in the cell produce byproducts that have important functions.
