PSEUDOSCIENCE

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…

RNA-mediated “repurposing” is autophagy

Autophagy (or autophagocytosis) (from the Ancient Greek αὐτόφαγος autóphagos, meaning “self-devouring”[1] and κύτος kýtos, meaning “hollow”[2]) is the natural, regulated, destructive mechanism of the cell that disassembles unnecessary or dysfunctional components.[3] RNA-mediated “repurposing” is nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled RNA-mediated repurposing in microbes and adaptations in primate brains Selective reporting of inferences: examples of pseudoscience Autophagy Pioneer Wins Nobel See my comments: ..autophagy, the process by which a cell recycles unnecessary components. “His discoveries opened the path to understanding the fundamental importance…

MicroRNA-encoded behavior

MicroRNA-encoded behavior in Drosophila Editor’s summary: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs that regulate gene activity. They repress expression through complementary base pairing interactions with target messenger RNAs… My comment: If I were going to link biophysically constrained nutrient-dependent protein folding chemistry to biodiversity, I would start with nutrient energy-dependent base pair changes and link microbes to humans via the conserved molecular mechanisms of their epigenetically-effected RNA-mediated metabolic networks and genetic networks. For example, I would link vitamin C to…

  • 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 […]
