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…

2016 obfuscated facts about energy as information

Illumination of the fluorescent biomarker in green revealed that the adult mouse brain could be infected by Zika in a region called the subgranular zone of the hippocampus. Full of neural progenitor cells, this part of the brain is important in learning and memory. Credit: Laboratory of Pediatric Brain Disease at The Rockefeller University/Cell Stem Cell As reported by Bob Yirka in: Best of Last Year – The top Medical Xpress articles of 2016 a team of MIT biologists reported…

Genes, orchid odors, and pheromones from blonds

1) The Genetics of Blond Hair (2014) and 2) Orchids give off human ‘body odor’ to attract mosquitoes (2016) Both articles link RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in all invertebrates and all vertebrates to every aspect of cell type differentiation in plants. …studies of genetic variation in thousands of people have linked at least eight DNA regions to blondness based on the fact that a certain DNA letter, or base, was found in people with that hair color but not in…

Mechanisms of stress: from genes to cancer

Biophysically constrained nutrient-dependent thermodynamic cycles of protein biosynthesis and degradation link the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in all living genera. Genomic stability arises in the context of a fine-tuned balance of viral microRNAs and nutrient-dependent microRNAs.  RNA-mediated gene duplication and RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions stabilize organized genomes. Nutrient-dependent microRNAs are linked by RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions from ecological variation to protection from DNA damage caused by viral microRNAs. The microRNA/messenger RNA balance links ecological variation 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 […]
