A mental health problem at the highest level

Investigators look for clues in deadly church shooting – news – att.net Investigators look for clues in deadly church shooting – news – att.net Todd Piro reports from Sutherland Springs, Texas. …the result of a “mental health problem at the highest level.” The mental health problem is caused by the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA, and by the ignorance of theorists who claim that mutations cause evolution. The theorists may not be intelligent enough to play the cell biology game…

Evolutionary theories of epigenetic drift

Testing Two Evolutionary Theories of Human Aging with DNA Methylation Data My summary: Outside the context of food energy-dependent biophysically constrained pheromone-controlled viral latency, mutation accumulation (MA) and disposable soma (DS) provide possible explanations for the existence of human aging. For example, age-differentially-methylated sites across the genome showed significant MA-consistent increases in heritability with age or significant DS-consistent decreases in heritability. Their results supposedly show that both MA and DS play a role in explaining aging and aging-related changes but…

Science vs Secularism: Molecular Mechanisms or Math?

Summary: An example from ancient knowledge of trigonometry links pattern recognition as the basis for the science of creationism, and pattern recognition also is the basis for molecular biology. What form of virus-driven pathology would you most like to see eliminated from future consideration by serious scientists who know how energy-dependent RNA-mediated cell type differentiation occurs? In any case, a PubMed search for microRNA and your disease of choice will be enlightening. See for example: microRNA + Alzheimer’s or microRNA…

Richard P. Feynman refuted theistic evolution

Summary: Among other delightful examples of his expertise in physics, Feynman presciently linked natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality from food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled biophysically constrained chromosomal rearrangements to healthy longevity. He also linked the radiation-induced theft of quantized energy to mutations in phages via amino acids that increase the virulence of the viruses. Updated information is presented in the context of refutations by many others who might otherwise claim to believe in theistic evolution. The miR-23a~27a~24-2 microRNA cluster buffers transcription…

80 years of causal analysis (1936 – 2016)

Roles of Mutation and Selection in Speciation: From Hugo de Vries [1902 definition of mutation] to the Modern Genomic Era Excerpt: …mutation is crucial in speciation because reproductive barriers cannot be generated without mutations. My comment: Chromosomal rearrangements link autophagy from energy-dependent changes in RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions and supercoiled DNA to all biodiversity via speciation. Some Principles of Causal Analysis in Genetics (1936) Extract: …high frequency radiation and particles of high velocity are very important components of the environment,…

Military combat training to fight disease (2)

See: Military combat training to fight disease In the quantum world, the future affects the past Excerpt 1) “It’s not clear why in the real world, the world made up of many particles, time only goes forward and entropy always increases,” Murch said. My comment: Serious scientists are attempting to determine why entropy does not always increase. They realize that feedback loops link cause and effect from the quantum world to the real world of light-induced amino acid substitutions that…

  • What Darwin proved: there’s no such thing as a species
    GENETICS As Animals Mingle, a Baffling Genetic Barrier A short stretch of DNA is challenging what it means to be a species. By: Emily Singer August 5, 2014 Excerpt: “Scientists have dubbed such regions of the genome “islands of speciation.” The persistence of such islands is a phenomenon that has been observed in a variety of […]
