Typical crank reasoning. "If I can't explain it, then I can explain it, psychons do it by magic". Usually it's not psychons, but God or space aliens or the Secret Consipracy of Evil Jews.
If that was "sure", then wouldn't you have a scrap of a shred of evidence for it?
All you need to do is find a protein the synthesis of which is not
directed by DNA.
Of course, this would not confirm the "psychons" hypothesis and more than it would confirm the goddidit hypothesis, the "space aliens are telporting proteins into my body" hypothesis, the "magic gene fairy" hypothesis, or the hypothesis that it's synthesized by some non
-magical biological process that we haven't found out about yet.
But it would be a start. So, please name one
human protein that doesn't have a corresponding gene.
Actually, that's comprehensible in terms of biochemistry
, without dragging in imaginary invisible entities. If you want to know how self-splicing introns self-splice (and most introns, BTW, are not self-splicing) then you could start with that article on [swiki]splicing[/swiki] that I keep referring you to, or you could go directly to this link
