    How do we know DNA exists?

    Is that what you're asking?

    Specifically, what is real? That DNA is unique?

    How do you know fingerprints are unique?

    I know there's an ongoing secret push to gather everyone's DNA.

    For whatever reason.

    They get the big "BAH FONGULA" from me. :fu:

    They claim they are ... false positives are more common that you might think.

    The same way most folks know their car has pistons, or spark plugs, or heck even a battery. Mostly trust in that one guy they know who actually looked lol.

    More seriously, are you asking about the accuracy? You can have a lab dispute DNA evidence.....or verify it so be careful.
