Combating evolution: Battlefield medicine vs politicized science

A steady decline in the number of pages read on this domain is paired with an increased bounce rate each time I post anything that pits the science of creation against the pseudoscientific nonsense of neo-Darwinian theories. If this domain were used in the context of a social science experiment, the statistics would show how theories have left the USA relatively defenseless against the threat of gene-editing technology, which has has been advanced in countries where students are not taught…

Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy (2)

See: Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy Thanks to Teresa Binstock for alerting me to this example, which was reported as: Shared epigenetic changes underlie different types of autism. Teresa wrote: “You might enjoy a glance at a use of epigenetic technology. Findings begin to answer, why such syndrome-defining traits given such diverse inter-individual genetics and numerous associations with environmental factors.” She co-authored our 1996 Hormones and Behavior review: From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior. She took responsibility for the accurate…

From Precis to Proof in 6000 years (3)

See first: Coulombic interactions facilitate polycombic adaptation See also: From Precis to Proof in 6000 years (2) See also: RNA catalyses nuclear pre-mRNA splicing 06 November 2013 Conclusion: …our data indicate that the spliceosome, like the ribosome44,45, uses RNA to effect catalysis in the context of a complex ribonucleoprotein assembly. Moreover, the common catalytic mechanism used by the spliceosome and group II introns is consistent with a common evolutionary origin between the spliceosome and these ancient RNA retroelements46,47. Our findings…

From Precis to Proof in 6000 years (2)

See: From Precis to Proof in 6000 years Why now? See from 2014 Israeli Middle Schools School to Include Theory of Evolution‘ Excerpt: “…learning about evolution is not the primary function of the decision, but rather to use it as a building block for students to learn more about their ecology.” See also: President Obama on Atheism We have since seen the rise of claims about natural information processing link energy-dependent changes to healthy longevity in species from microbes to…

Light ‘drives’ adaptation; nothing ‘drives’ evolution (2)

See: Light ‘drives’ adaptation; nothing ‘drives’ evolution See also: Who rules the waves? – Viruses might just be bit players in the drama of the seas. Then again, they could be major actors Excerpt (from 1996):  Most consider viruses to be a legion of cripples, sterilised by ultraviolet radiation and rendered impotent by hosts that are largely immune to their threat. But a few researchers take the opposite view. And if they turn out to be right, viruses could radically…

Polycombic ecological adaptation as a science, not a theory (2)

Evolutionary Constraints in the β-Globin Cluster: The Signature of Purifying Selection at the δ-Globin (HBD) Locus and Its Role in Developmental Gene Regulation Conclusion: … the results here presented indicate that purifying selection is driving not only HBD evolution but also its neighbor pseudogene, HBBP1. In the light of recent advances in the characterization of the β-globin cluster, we propose that the complex patterns of diversity observed in this genomic region arose from distinct functional constraints related with the intricate…

Demoncrats fight polycombic ecological adaptation

Comey sent Congress letter on Clinton emails despite DOJ warning it would breach policy Excerpt: …we don’t ordinarily tell Congress about ongoing investigations, but here I feel an obligation to do so given that I testified repeatedly in recent months that our investigation was completed,” Comey wrote, referring to the Bureau’s previous investigation into Clinton’s private email server. “I also think it would be misleading to the American people were we not to supplement the record. See also: 96. ‘The…

Biological evolution as a philosophy, not a science

There is no indication in the abstracts that any of the presenters are going to address the facts that link quantised energy to polycombic ecological adaptation and virus-driven energy theft from hecatombic evolution to all pathology in all living genera. Virus-mediated archaeal hecatomb in the deep seafloor (2016) provides details on the hecatombin evolution of all patholgoy From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior (1996) provides details on the polycombic ecological adaptation of all healthy longevity. For these experts to address…

Attacking Young Earth Creationists

‘Residual diversity estimates’ do not correct for sampling bias in palaeodiversity data Abstract excerpt: Evolutionary dynamics such as speciation are inherently a phylogenetic process, and only an explicitly phylogenetic approach will correctly model this process. Reported as: Flawed analysis casts doubt on years of evolutionary research The method assumes that variations in the number of different fossils at any given time are a reflection of how much rock was available. It has been used in more than 150 published research…

Energy-dependent polycombic ecological adaptation

Are Humans Evolving Now Excerpt: This post will discuss current genetic data on what current evolution seems to be taking place. My comment: It is time for all science bloggers and journalists to stop making claims about evolution. None of their claims have ever been supported by experimental evidence of biologically-based energy-dependent top-down causation and the effects of energy on the physiology of reproduction in all living genera. For example: 1) Virus-driven energy theft is clearly the difference between bacteria…
