RNA–Mediated Epigenetic Heredity

Nutrient-dependent trophic analogs (2)

Nutrient-dependent trophic analogs The claim that Microbes are trophic analogs of animals has not yet been placed into the context of RNA-mediated events that link amino acid substitutions to cell type differentiation in all individuals of all living genera over-the-weekend. See, for example:  Evolutionary resurrection of flagellar motility via rewiring of the nitrogen regulation system Excerpt from the editors summary:  The mutated bacteria regained the lost flagella, and motility, within 4 days. Two stereotypical mutations diverted an evolutionarily related regulator…

Essential pseudoscientific concepts of atheism

12 Essential Scientific Concepts It is important to note that this representation of essential concepts is made by Professor Indre Viskontas, who uses the opportunity to try to sell others on her atheistic perspective. Presenting her ridiculous perspective as if it represented any scientific concepts is akin to presentations by Richard Dawkins, Dan Dennett, Steven Pinker, Penn & Teller and PZ Myers. My favorite pseudoscientist, is little PeeZee Myers. He made himself known to me in an attack on my…

RNA-mediated theory killers (2)

RNA-mediated theory killers… This is a continuation that will become a series that links the million dollar paradox to the $100,000 prize offered for finding the origin of information at Evolution 2.0, which obviously will be a continuation of Schrodinger’s claims and Dobzhansky’s claims along with the claims of others I have repeatedly mentioned here. Critical Role of Histone Turnover in Neuronal Transcription and Plasticity Reported as: Lifelong learning is made possible by recycling of histones Excerpt: “Histones and their…

RNA-mediated theory killers

Brain-manipulation studies may produce spurious links to behaviour Study shows that controlling neurons with light or drugs may affect the brain in more ways than expected. Excerpt: Given that many experiments build on existing knowledge about circuits involved in a behaviour, he cautions, experimental scientists should be particularly careful when using transient techniques to map entirely new circuits in the brain. “This study nicely reminds us that there is no perfect technique,” says Evan Feinberg, a neuroscientist at the University…

Natural cooperation and Evolution 2.0

More than 45,000 published journal articles indexed on PubMed already contained the term microRNA before evolutionary theorists declared the microRNAs were linked from their emergence to all biodiversity via mutations and evolution in: MicroRNA mechanisms of action: what have we learned from mice? Conclusion:  We speculate that miRNAs emerged during evolution to increase the complexity of gene regulation, thereby contributing to the diversity of organisms. See for comparison: ‘Natural cooperation’ is nutrient dependent and pheromone controlled See also: Evolution 2.0…

A million dollar paradox?

Paradox at the heart of mathematics makes physics problem unanswerable Excerpt 1) Cubitt and his collaborators focused on calculating the ‘spectral gap’: the gap between the lowest energy level that electrons can occupy in a material, and the next one up. My comment: I hesitate to suggest that the problem of the spectral [energy] gap must be placed into the context of what is known about the speed of light on contact with water and how the anti-entropic energy of…

A two-faced protein enables RNA-mediated DNA repair (4)

See also: A two-faced protein enables RNA-mediated DNA repair (3) The importance of DNA repair to heritability cannot be understated. Theorists who think in terms of mutations and evolution are biologically uninformed and may never have learned anything about DNA repair. Serious scientists are overloaded with information and are not likely to try to explain facts about biologically based cause and effect to theorists. November, 2015 An individual-based diploid model predicts limited conditions under which stochastic gene expression becomes advantageous My…

A two-faced protein enables RNA-mediated DNA repair (5)

The title of the article below about “gut bugs” attests to the fact that the popularity of neo-Darwinism is based on the lack of popularity for any alternative. For example, Schrodinger (1944) claimed: …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…

See: A two-faced protein enables RNA-mediated DNA repair (2) See: A two-faced protein enables RNA-mediated DNA repair My comment: Attempts to place what is currently known about the links from atoms to ecosystems back into the context of neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense have been doomed to fail ever since Dobzhansky (1973) wrote: Nothing in Biology Makes Any Sense Except in the Light of Evolution. He linked nutrient-dependent amino acid substitutions to cell type differentiation across species and also claimed “…the so-called…
