Kohl’s Laws of Biology (codon-optimality revisited)

Summary: Kohl’s Laws help to explain what was missing from Darwin’s ‘conditions of life.’ Darwin knew nothing about genetics, which means he knew nothing about the epigenetic effects of food odors or pheromones. Ancient hepatitis B viruses from the Bronze Age to the Medieval period 5/7/18 We provide evidence for the creation of HBV genotype A via recombination, and for a long-term association of modern HBV genotypes with humans, including the discovery of a human genotype that is now extinct.…

ATP and RNA-mediated chromosomal stability

Cytosis, a cell biology game for ages 10+ links ATP to viral latency and the protection of all organized genomes from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA that serious scientists have linked to all pathology. It is time for a new measure of cell function: Quantifying Cellular ATP Production Rate…(2018) Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the most common high energy intermediate of living organisms. Cells utilize the energy derived from the breakdown of cellular fuels to synthesize ATP from ADP and…

A single base change refutes theistic evolution (2)

Announcing publication of a model that links the creation of quantized energy from changes in subatomic particles to biophysically constrained viral latency and sympatric speciation in all living genera. Nutrient-dependent Pheromone-Controlled Ecological Adaptations: From Angstroms to Ecosystems This angstroms to ecosystems model of ecological adaptation links nutrient energy-dependent epigenetic effects on base pairs and amino acid substitutions to pheromone-controlled changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance and chromosomal rearrangements via the physiology of reproduction in species from microbes to humans. The…

Nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled feedback loops

Summary: The link from positive selection to one food energy-dependent base pair change and fixation of the mouse-model-to-human-specific EDAR V370A allele in populations on different continents attests to sympatric speciation at every level of examination that refutes the pseudoscientific nonsense of neo-Darwinian mutation-driven evolution. Reported on 5/3/18 as: SWAT team of immune cells found in mother’s milk  1) “There is a feedback loop,” says Yu. It’s known that some immune cells like leucocytes, another white blood cell that fights infection,…

Ecological Adaptations vs the Randomness of Evolution (2)

Summary: See for comparison: Make ‘Em Resistant to Viruses In the new proposal — which Science says was released in advance of a meeting today — GP-write leaders say “ultrasafe” cells could be developed by making some 400,000 changes to the human genome.

Environmental selection is natural selection (2)

I believe that if you put enough biologically uniformed theorists in the same room, they will invent more theories to support the pseudoscientific nonsense they have touted in the past. See for example: Environmental selection during the last ice age on the mother-to-infant transmission of vitamin D and fatty acids through breast milk Acknowledgments The synthesis presented here is a product of the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s 2017 annual meeting, as the ideas came together in the…

Abiogenesis vs microRNA biogenesis

Summary: The pseudoscientific nonsense about abiogenesis that has been touted by Karo Michaelian and others like him has caused the unnecessary suffering and premature death of millions to billions of people by placing the pathogenic consequences of deregulated miRNAs into the context of ridiculous theories. See for comparison: Structural diversity of supercoiled DNA and the parody from the same research group: ——————————- Abiogenesis (2017) Microscopic dissipative structuring and proliferation at the origin of life (Oct 13, 2017) Some fundamental molecules…

The eternal significance of microRNAs (3)

Summary:  RNA-Dependent Intergenerational Inheritance of Enhanced Synaptic Plasticity after Environmental Enrichment was not linked to sympatric speciation via The Bull Sperm MicroRNAome and the Effect of Fescue Toxicosis on Sperm MicroRNA Expression Something has gone horribly wrong.   I suspect the overwhelming ignorance of biologically uninformed theorists is the problem because their silence is deafening. When trapped by their ridiculous theories, they no longer kick, scream, or bite (like weasels). They participate in so-called marches like the 2018 March for…

The eternal significance of microRNAs (1)

Common Allele Linked to Sugar Consumption Leads to Lower Body Fat, Higher Blood Pressure One energy-dependent change in a base pair is linked from the FGF21 rs838133 variant to microRNA-mediated changes in morphology and behavior. The quantized energy as information link from microRNAs to morphology and behavior is common to my mouse-to-human model of sympatric speciation. By linking the common allele to sugar consumption, the authors attest to the fact that sympatric speciation is quantized energy-dependent. Energy as information biophysically constrains…

Sympatric Speciation vs Pseudoscientific Nonsense (1)

Summary: The “Science Behind the Game” from the cell biology game “Cytosis” supports all claims that clearly link energy-dependent alternative splicings of pre-mRNAs (aka microRNAs) to biophysically constrained viral latency. Game play by ages 10+ establishes the requirement for viral latency in the context of ecological variation and ecological adaptation outside the context of neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense. Simply put, Darwin presciently placed his “conditions of life” into the current perspective on ecological niche construction and sympatric speciation, which exemplifies ecological…
