It’s either we fooled you, or we were fooled

10 Questions To Distinguish Real From Fake Science

Excerpt: Finally, no matter how much you dislike “experts” or disbelieve the “establishment,” the fact remains that people who have an MD or a science PhD or both after their names have gone to school for 24 years or longer, receiving an in-depth, daily, hourly education in the issues they’re discussing. 

My comment: Jay Feierman, moderator of the ISHE’s yahoo discussion group has an MD and a PhD after his name. Like many other ‘experts,’ he believes in mutation-driven evolution.

In 1927, J.B.S. Haldane reasoned that the probability of fixation of new beneficial alleles is twice their fitness effect. This result, later generalized by M. Kimura, has since become the cornerstone of modern population genetics. There is no experimental test of Haldane’s insight …

No experimental test of what became the cornerstone of modern population genetics was ever attempted. What are the ‘experts,’ like Feierman going to say about the refutation? It’s either we fooled you, or we were fooled. I think you’ll hear virtually nothing about the refutation. It is extremely unlikely that any of the ‘experts’ who were fooled will admit that.

No matter. Proof that these ‘experts’ were fooled showed up one week later in the same journal. Using complimentary cell-specific knockout and knockin approaches we demonstrate here that the GnRH neuron is the key site of kisspeptinGpr54 signaling for fertility.

In my model, control of mammalian GnRH is nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled as is adaptive evolution via the same molecular mechanisms in species from microbes to man. No fooling! Experimental evidence confirms the conserved molecular mechanisms for fixation of new alleles and I’ve included animal models that exemplified that conservation in my latest publication.
