March for science vs microRNAs
Rush Holt, a former physicist and Democratic congressman who runs the American Association for the Advancement of Science, said scientists find it appalling that “evidence has been crowded out by ideological assertions.

Molecular biology and evolutionary biology have been separate disciplines and scientific cultures: The former is mechanistic and focused on molecules; the latter is theoretical and focused on populations. However, these domains are beginning to converge in laboratories addressing molecular mechanisms that explain how evolutionary processes work, and bring these processes to bear on medical problems such as cancer and infectious disease. Each discipline can be viewed as a missing link in the other’s description of biology, and in medicine.
Darwin probably anticipated the insemination of population genetics that led to the bastardization of his detailed observations in the “Modern Synthesis.” He politely insisted that ‘conditions of life’ be considered before natural selection.
While you were sleeping this “tipping point” was reached. The fact that it was reached on the night before the “March for Science” may have the anticipatory impact akin to that of the night before Christmas and Christmas morning if you are a creationist.
There are now more that 60,000 published works that refute the neo-Darwinian nonsense that is still being taught to unsuspecting victims of academic fraud and/or corporate greed.

Our results show that where you end up in life is not only dependent where you start and how smart you are but is determined by your personality.

All these factors affect the internal workings of the individual and intervene in structuring how the social environment might or might not modify sexual behavior. This discourse calls attention to features that are central to the so-called nature-nurture discussion.
