Natural selection for racism and all pathology

Why is natural selection hard to grasp? It is not what you think…. …human cognitive tendencies interfere more with deep understanding of how natural selection works. Simply put, our intelligence and teleological reasoning interferes with the teaching of pseudoscientific nonsense. The nonsense does not place Darwin’s “conditions of life” before natural selection for reproductive fitness. Natural selection is food energy-dependent and pheromone-controlled in the context of biophysically constrained viral latency. See for comparison: The vibrational theory of olfaction for the…

Proteins “evolve” (revisited)

Complex evolutionary footprints revealed in an analysis of reused protein segments of diverse lengths Reported by Jay R. Feierman to the evolutionary psychology Yahoo Group as: Recycling at the molecular level: Protein evolution Reuse patterns in protein space reflect 3.7 billion y of evolution (58), restrained by the underlying physicochemical qualities of covalently linked amino acids. Autophagy links chirality from energy-dependent changes in electrons to ecosystems. For comparison, their claim is consistent with ridiculous misrepresentations of food energy-dependent biophysically constrained…

Sci-Hub vs limits on the dissemination of information

The ideology of “Americanism” is not consistent with the tactics of academics and politicians that constrain release of accurate information about  biologically-based cause and effect. …Americanism is an ideology, or belief in devotion, loyalty, or allegiance to the United States of America, or to its flag, traditions, customs, culture, symbols, institutions, or form of government.[2] In the words of Theodore Roosevelt, “Americanism is a question of spirit, conviction, and purpose, not of creed or birthplace.”[3] Americanism has two different meanings.…

Methylation and the Innate Immune System

Free Webinar Training: Methylation and the Innate Immune System Free Training: Methylation and the Innate Immune System Please send your questions, comments and feedback to: support@qahomestudy.com I sent these two questions in advance: 1) Does what organisms eat link food energy to RNA-directed DNA methylation and all healthy longevity via fixation of amino acid substitutions and transgenerational epigenetic inheritance in the context of the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in species from microbes to humans? 2) Does the virus-driven theft of…

The Origin of Information (4)

Summary: Others have learned that the energy in a hydrogen atom must be linked to all biodiversity on Earth. The question is: “Where did the energy in the hydrogen atom come from?” See: The Origin of Information (3) Finally, someone is asking questions that can be summarized in one question (see below). Until now, on the International Society for Human Ethology’s Yahoo group, and elsewhere, the moderator: Jay R. Feierman has prevented the dissemination of accurate information on this topic.…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (6)

Conclusion: Like Richard Dawkins, Magnus S. Magnusson is a pseudoscientist. A light-induced change in an endogenous substrate found in all cell types of all living genera links femtosecond blasts of UV light from the de novo creation of the innate immune system to RNA-mediated DNA repair in species from microbes to humans. The theft of quantized energy by viruses has been linked to all pathology. The speed at which quantum decoherence occurs makes it difficult for virus-driven energy theft to…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (3)

See first: Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (2) Emily Balskus Pins Down the Chemistry and Metabolism of Human Microbiomes Summary: The chemistry and metabolism of all microbiomes is food energy-dependent and pheromone-controlled via the physiology of reproduction. See: Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction My comment to The Scientist: …trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline (Hyp) dehydratase, a newly discovered member of an abundant family of proteins, produced by gut bacteria, known as the glycyl radical enzymes, helps in metabolizing trans-Hyp, an…

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,…

Energy-dependent epigenetic translation to mRNA stability

Negative selection in humans and fruit flies involves synergistic epistasis Negative selection against deleterious alleles produced by mutation influences within-population variation as the most pervasive form of natural selection. Naturally occurring positive selection for energy-dependent codon optimality replaced every aspect of neo-Darwinian theories that linked natural selection from mutations to evolution of increasing organismal complexity. Positive selection for epigenetically-effected beneficial alleles links the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of supercoiled DNA via nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled metabolic networks and genetic networks.…

Energy-dependent microRNA biogenesis

Published May 3, 2017 Genetic variation and RNA structure regulate microRNA biogenesis …primary sequence determinants and RNA structure are key regulators of miRNA biogenesis. Genetic variation aka primary sequence determinants are energy-dependent and RNA-mediated. Energy-dependent RNA methylation is an experience-dependent link from natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality. Natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality links ATP-dependent microRNA biogenesis to RNA biosynthesis. Ridiculous attempts to portray energy-dependent top-down causation as if genetic variation came first may continue for another 52 years.…
