See Sci-Bay Scholar for citations and downloads of more than 3300 published works that link viruses to microRNAs
Summary: …either the organized genomes of all cell types use the energy source, or viruses use the biophysically constrained energy of the cell types. No extant species can be used as an example of how the virus-driven theft of quantized energy can be linked from natural selection to the evolution of a new species.

Light Offers New Way to Control Cell Biology (3/16/17)

…the power of light-sensitive proteins is that they can be used to study the inner workings of any living cell.


Salt-tolerant archaea (the Haloarchaea) use sunlight as an energy source, and other species of archaea fix carbon; however, unlike plants and cyanobacteria, no known species of archaea does both.

George Church At 15:10

…the cyanobacteria turn out that they fix light ah as well or better than land plants…

From the transcript:

The cyanobacteria fix [carbon via] light as well or better than land plants. Under ideal circumstances, they can be maybe seven to ten times more productive per photon.

The difference between the fixation of light and the fixation of carbon is that (see above)  no known species of archaea does both. That fact supports the claim that the ability to fix light is an ecological adaptation that links the quantized energy of sunlight to all biophysically constrained biodiversity in the context of energy-dependent viral latency.

Archaea that do not use sunlight as their energy source probably become L-forms in the context of the virus-driven degradation of their messenger RNA, which has been linked from mutations to all pathology in the context of one-carbon metabolism. Quantized energy is the obvious link from the fixation of light to the fixation of carbon in all carbon-based life forms on Earth.

Simply put, either the organized genomes of all cell types use the energy source that fixes carbon, or the viruses use the biophysically constrained energy of the cell types. For comparison, no extant species can be used as an example of how the virus-driven theft of quantized energy can be used in the context of natural selection and evolution.

The cell wall is important for cell division, which, in most bacteria, occurs by binary fission. This process usually requires a cell wall and components of the bacterial cytoskeleton such as FtsZ. The ability of L-form bacteria to grow and divide in the absence of both of these structures is highly unusual, and may represent a form of cell division that was important in early forms of life.[1]
If the claim that L-forms are an early form of life was placed into the perspective of claims by Carl Woese about the different domains of life, theorists would need to explain how the cell wall “evolved” before all life on Earth evolved from archaea to bacteria and every other species.

For comparison, I claim that quantized energy as information carried by light is the link from the creation of the cell wall to all epigenetically-effected biophysically constrained food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled biodiversity. However, Carl Zimmer seems to want someone to redefine “heredity” to make the definition fit back into the context of evolution outside the context of Dobzhansky (1973) Nothing in Biology Makes Any Sense Except in the Light of Evolution


I am a creationist and an evolutionist. Evolution is God’s, or Nature’s, method of Creation.

For example, the so-called alpha chains of hemoglobin have identical sequences of amino acids in man and the chimpanzee, but they differ in a single amino acid (out of 141) in the gorilla.

…different SNPs may be present and confer risk for inefficacy or toxicity among AAs, as well as Asians, Hispanics, or other populations.

The light energy-dependent differences in the SNPs confer the diversity of morphological and behavioral phenotypes in all living genera. The SNPs also are linked to healthy longevity or pathology via the fixation of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions. That fact must be placed into the context of pheromone-controlled reproduction and transgenerational epigenetic inheritance. That is why Carl Zimmer wants people to think that we need a new definition of heredity.

We need a new definition of what heredity is…

“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”

Until the public is convinced that scientists and journalists care about truth and society, then I fear all of our labors will be in vain.

Serious scientists care about the truth and about society. Many so-called science journalists want the efforts of people who care to be viewed in the context of their pseudoscientific nonsense about heredity via evolution.
See: Changes in the vascular system may trigger Alzheimer’s disease (3/21/17)

The plasma protein, called Factor XII, is part of a cascade of enzymes that induces blood coagulation and inflammation.

If Alzheimer’s disease evolved, you do not need to know about the energy-dependent cascade of enzymes that starts with the creation of ATP synthase. What if you had become a so-called science journalist who did not know that proteins do not create themselves? For example, that’s how energy-dependent changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance can be linked to all healthy longevity. You wouldn’t know that.
Virus-driven energy theft causes Alzheimer’s and all other pathology. All serious scientists know that. All pseudoscientists, atheists, and theorists do not want you to know it. For example, viruses cause antibiotic resistance.

2011 Researchers to study positive genetic contributions of viruses (3/18/11)

  1. The two-year, $550,000 grant has been awarded to K. Eric Wommack…
  2. These discoveries come from the study of marine ecosystems but allow researchers to learn more about the predominant biological features of viruses overall, which can affect how human conditions – such as cancer – are diagnosed and treated. “Within some of the samples we’ve collected, we found genes critical to protein folding,” says Polson. “In many cases, protein has to be directed to fold in the proper way. Protein misfolding is a component in the cause of some diseases, so this knowledge can be very important in our understanding of viral infection processes.”

Reported as: Social selection: genetic contribution of viruses to life on earth

… science fiction author Greg Bear successfully predicted the involvement of specific viruses in speciation (read Darwin’s Radio and Darwin’s Children). This new report attests to the likelihood that the mechanisms may someday be found. Bear’s concept of viral induction of species evolution — with further consideration given after reading this article — also sheds light on differences between what most people call “natural” selection and what some people are beginning to call “social” selection. There may be no evidence of transitionary species in the fossil record because viruses elicited comparatively sudden and dramatic changes in the genotype and phenotype of extant organisms as other organisms became extinct. One of the mechanisms involved in speciation, as indicated by Bear, is likely to be pheromones that signal similarities and differences in species that occupy similar social niches. I’m now suggesting that transfer of genetic material between species — not just single genes, but large segments of genetic code – could rather suddenly result in what might at first appear to be a newly evolved organism. If ever a newly evolved organism is found, it might be a good idea to look around its neighborhood for genetic clues that provide evidence of parenthood, or of Creation.

Virus-mediated archaeal hecatomb in the deep seafloor (2015)

We show here for the first time the crucial role of viruses in controlling archaeal dynamics and therefore the functioning of deep-sea ecosystems, and suggest that virus-archaea interactions play a central role in global biogeochemical cycles.

See for updates: Viruses in Soil Ecosystems: An Unknown Quantity Within an Unexplored Territory (2017)

While information from aquatic systems and medical microbiology suggests the potential for viral influences on nutrient cycles, food web interactions, gene transfer, and other key processes in soils, very few empirical data are available. To understand the soil virome, much work remains.

Re-examination of the relationship between marine virus and microbial cell abundances (2017)

…viral effect sizes derived from ‘representative’ abundances require substantial refinement to be extrapolated to regional or global scales.

If you let them, researchers like these will spend millions of dollars and never learn that viral latency is biophysically constrained in the context of the sun’s anti-entropic energy and the physiology of food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled feedback loops.
See for comparison: What is life? (1944)

Indeed, in the case of higher animals we know the kind of orderliness they feed upon well enough, viz. the extremely well-ordered state of matter in more or less complicated organic compounds, which serve them as foodstuffs. After utilizing it they return it in a very much degraded form -not entirely degraded, however, for plants can still make use of it. (These, of course, have their most power supply of ‘negative entropy’ the sunlight.)
