New Testament Book Cover Refutes Theistic Evolution

Video of Biology of the Book Goats, bookworms, a monk’s kiss: Biologists reveal the hidden history of ancient gospels Collins already had developed a method to identify ancient species by differences in the amino acid sequences of collagen and other proteins preserved in fossils. See: Protein power by Robert F. Service …methods to sequence amino acids lag behind DNA sequencing. The report of 300 million year old proteins is based on ridiculous theories that failed to include what was known about…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (10)

Summary: The entire evolution of the microbial world and the virus world, and the interaction between microbes and viruses and other life forms have been left out of the Modern Synthesis…— Eugene Koonin My comment: Viruses are not life forms. They steal the quantized energy that links sunlight to viral latency in the context of everything known to all serious scientists about the fact that Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction See for comparison: Olfaction Warps Visual…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (8)

Summary: The role of vitamin C in the treatment of pain: new insights links what is known about the “superfood” Spirulina (blue-green algae), which is grown in marine and freshwater environments, to the stability of all organized genomes via its biological activities, such as antioxidant, anti-diabetic, cholesterol-controlling and insulin resistance effects. The biological activities are energy-dependent and they link the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight to all biodiversity via the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction and microRNAs in plants and animals.…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (1)

Summary: The hitchhiking, the epistasis, and the dynamics of adapting populations are energy-dependent and biophysically constrained in the context of RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry. The virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA links mutations to all pathology in all living genera. An upper limit on the functional fraction of the human genome For the human population to maintain a constant size from generation to generation, an increase in fertility must compensate for the reduction in the mean fitness of the population caused,…

Cell type assembly and the space-time continuum

Summary: The time to adopt energy-dependent cell type assembly as the unit of cognition was in 1944, when Schrodinger published “What is Life.” By the time Roger Penrose made his comment in the reprint edition, everyone else was too late. Penrose wrote: “How often do we still hear that quantum effects can have little relevance in the study of biology, or even that we eat food in order to gain energy?” (Roger Penrose 8 August 1991) See: Time (and space)…

The emergence of light as energy from a life-giving star (3)

See also: The emergence of light as energy from a life-giving star (2) A rendering of how changes in an electron’s motion (bottom view) alter the scattering of light (top view), as measured in a new experiment that scattered more than 500 photons of light from a single electron. Previous experiments had managed to scatter no more than a few photons at a time.

The emergence of light as energy from a life-giving star (2)

Conclusion: …all experimental evidence of biophysically constrained life on Earth begins with the creation of the sun’s energy, not with a Universe that is always looking. See: The emergence of light as energy from a life-giving star June 20, 2017 Some science journalists seem to be following my blog posts so that they can attack my claims and continue to obfuscate cause and effect.  It is difficult to place their obfuscation into the context of coincidence. For example, in my…

MicroRNAs GnRH and the failure of sex research

Summary: “The Bull Sperm MicroRNAome and the Effect of Fescue Toxicosis on Sperm MicroRNA Expression” accurately represents what is known about food energy-dependent RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in species from soil microbes to humans. MicroRNAs are not new players in the hypothalamic control of fertility and the effects of food odors and pheromones on microRNAs link energy-dependent changes in hormones to behavior. That fact was detailed two decades ago in our Hormones and Behavior review. Now see: [MicroRNAs: new players…

Food energy-dependent cell type differentiation (3)

Food energy-dependent cell type differentiation (2) Summary: Until The Scientist provides the rest of the story, see our section on molecular epigenetics in: From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior (1996) and this refutation of neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model Micronutrients, Macro Impact …the work was related to human research conducted later by British epidemiologist David Barker that culminated in his eponymous 1990 hypothesis proposing that pre- and postnatal undernutrition, low birth weight, or premature birth can contribute…

Food energy-dependent cell type differentiation (2)

Summary: The concept of “faster-evolving DNA” regions in the context of nucleotide variation in both the 16S and 12S sequences is not consistent with any accurate representation of how the functional structure of supercoiled DNA must be linked from energy-dependent changes in angstroms to ecosystems in all living genera. Conserved molecular mechanisms link the sense of smell in bacteria from the de novo creation of olfactory receptor genes to the physiology of reproduction via the microRNA/messenger RNA balance and Feynman’s…

    GENETICS As Animals Mingle, a Baffling Genetic Barrier A short stretch of DNA is challenging what it means to be a species.
