RNAi 2002 to AI 2021 (9)
Theorists live for the days that force them to revise their theories. When that day comes, they change their definitions to make others think that not all theorists are losers. This program is part of a series, supported by the John Templeton Foundation.
The “Foundation” has no basis in the reality of facts that led intelligent serious scientists to make claims about Visualizing a protonated RNA state that modulates microRNA-21 maturation 10/26/20

Over the years, scientists have discovered multiple protein regulators of miRNA biogenesis cellular pathways, and it is often perceived that these protein factors act on largely passive miRNA processing intermediates to direct their maturation. Now, the lab of Qi Zhang, PhD, associate professor in the UNC Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, discovered a new RNA-centric mechanism by which miRNA processing intermediates can play direct, active roles in regulating miRNA biogenesis.
Translation: The lab of Qi Zhang eliminated all DNA-centric theories via facts about energy-dependent protonated microRNA-mediated maturation of the molecular mechanisms that intelligent serious scientists have linked from the prevention of Covid19 to the prevention and/or effective treatment of cancer.
For comparison, the John Templeton Foundation typically funds research that supports stupid theories that link Big Bang cosmology to the evolution of all biodiversity on earth via mutations and evolution across billions to millions of years. The theories are not based on experimental evidence of top-down causation and they are only discussed in the terms of other stupid theories that require definitions of phenomena.

Many terms in science have a different meaning from the public usage, because they depend on particular definitions of the phenomena to which they apply.
Clearly, theorists who use definitions of phenomena to support their theories are losers.

Nobody wants to belong to the party of losers. One of the best strategies in such a case is evidently an interpretation of the change as a gradual accumulation of knowledge while their work has always been at the cutting edge. — Kalevi Kull

[W]hat Haldane, Fisher, Sewell Wright, Hardy, Weinberg et al. did was invent…. Evolution was defined as “changes in gene frequencies in natural populations.” Assumptions, made but not verified, were taught as fact. — Lynn Margulis
The assumptions have since been linked to claims about How DNA is preserved in archaeological sediments for thousands of years 12/27/21 with almost no mention by theorists who have ignored the age of the Ginkgo biloba tree, which is ~1000 years. It would be appropriate for theorists to try to understand how Ginkgo biloba extract is linked from sunlight, humidity and soil types to ecological adaptations in the context of microRNA-mediated treatment of colorectal cancer.

Unfortunately, biologically uninformed theorists prefer their theories.
See for examples the works of E.O. Wilson and Howard C. Berg, who among others have led to many problems with racism, sexism, unnecessary suffering, and virus-driven premature death that intelligent people are forced to deal with each day.
