Scientism, Atheism and Theology (8)

By: James V. Kohl | Published on: December 8, 2022

There are not two schools of thought about how to monetize God’s Creation. Claims made by evolutionists about ecologically relevant “magic traits” are thoughtless. They have no explanatory power. Claims about His ATP-dependent Creation of RNA at the origin of life ~6000 years ago have been supported by experimental evidence of Top-down causation and quantum physics 10/23/18

For comparison, nutrient stress and social stress link the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA (mRNA) to all pathology. Prevention is microRNA (miRNA)-mediated via the energy-dependent synthesis and release of glucocorticoids, which are like other hormones that maintain the miRNA-mRNA homeostatic functions. For a historical perspective on homeostasis, see: Bacterial self-organization: co-enhancement of complexification and adaptability in a dynamic environment 5/7/03

The notion of informative communication corresponds to my view of bacteria as `adaptable generators’, that is, they alter themselves according to information received from the environment and send signals to bring about (generate) changes in other bacteria.

We found that miR-200/ZEB forms a tristable circuit that acts as a ternary switch, driven by miR-34/SNAIL, that is a monostable module that acts as a noise-buffering integrator of internal and external signals.

Schrodinger was right…organisms must glean additional information from their surroundings, perform
information processing, and then generate new information.

Role of microRNAs and long non‑coding RNAs in glucocorticoid signaling 11/11/22

“One such hormone in humans is cortisol, which is produced by the hypothalamic‑pituitary‑adrenal cortex axis and binds with the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) following its secretion. GR controls a number of distinct gene networks. Non‑coding RNAs (ncRNAs), such as microRNAs (miRNAs) and long non‑coding RNAs (lncRNAs), regulate the expression and function of GR…”

That fact has been known or suspected by all intelligent serious scientists since the time that one of them said: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.

“…this ancient idea that virtually all disease could be treated with diet, however much or little it was embraced by Hippocrates, has become an idée fixe in alternative medicine, so much so that it leads its proponents twist new science (like epigenetics) to try to fit it into a framework where diet rules all, often coupled with the idea that doctors don’t understand or care about nutrition and it’s big pharma that’s preventing the acceptance of dietary interventions.”

The fact that big pharma prevents acceptance of dietary interventions can be viewed in the context of claims made by Dobzhansky (1964), by McEwen et al. (1964) and by Richard P. Feynman. See: Richard Feynman on units of energy

For comparison to claims about food energy that led to claims about how the metabolism of food to species-specific pheromones was linked to biophysically constrained viral latency across kingdoms has since been linked to claims about exosomal miRNAs, which are an an obvious link from light-activated endogenous substrates in all cell types to fixation of amino acid substitutions in microtubules. Energy-dependent fixation is biophysically constrained by pheromone-regulated genetic processes of reproduction in species from microbes to humans, unless the species automagically evolved from pond scum during the past millions of years of mutation-driven evolution.

For instance, evolutionists tout theories that link the emergence of energy from the cosmic void to ecologically relevant “magic traits.”

“We propose that these key egg attributes may function as “magic traits” in this adaptive radiation.”

Genetic dissection of assortative mating behavior (2018)

Ecologically relevant mating cues (sometimes known as ‘magic traits’ [2, 4]) are now predicted to be widespread in nature [4, 6],


Gene-Environment Interactions in Human Evolution and Complex Traits (12/8/22)

Dr. Kaixiong (Calvin) Ye’s research interest lies in Nutritional Genomics, a new interdisciplinary field bridging Nutritional Sciences and Human Genomics. They are interested in identifying genetic variants that historically helped human populations adapt to local diets and currently underlie individual differences in nutrient metabolism and metabolic disease risks. In the long run, they hope to develop statistical methods that integrate genomic information to personalize our dietary recommendations (Personalized Nutrition).
