Excerpt: “In 2011, Meierhenrich and colleages showed4 that such light could transfer its handedness to amino acids.
But even demonstrating how a common physical phenomenon would have favoured left-handed amino acids over right-handed ones would not tell us that this was how life evolved, adds Laurence Barron, a chemist at the University of Glasgow, UK. “There are no clinchers. We may never know.”
My comment:I think the clincher is the creation of the achiral amino acid, glycine. For example, it’s nutrient-dependent insertion into the vertebrate gondadotropin-releasing hormone decapeptide links the biophysical constraints put forth in the context of “Let there be light” to light-induced amino acid substitutions in plants and animals. http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2014/06/11/1402538111.abstract
“This strong connection between structural biology and physics means that ultrafast light-harvesting functions are under…” epigenetic control, which links the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in the organized genomes of species from unicellular cryptophytes to man via the nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction.
The first information supplied to the first cell appears to have arrived in the form of light as a nutrient source, which led to the de novo creation of functional structures in all other cell types via amino acid substitutions that differentiate the cell types of all individuals of all species.
That ‘clincher’ suggests the need for evolutionary theorists to link quantum physics to quantum biology via an evolutionary event.
However, since theorists have never described a biologically-based evolutionary event that links one mutated species to another via natural selection, it seems unlikely that they will describe an evolutionary event that links biophysically-constrained ecological variation to ecological adaptations in species from microbes to man.
“We are unable to post your comment [above] because you have been blocked by Nature News.”
Ask yourself if “Nature News” may not want anyone to comment on the obvious links from quantum physics to quantum biology. Do they only want to disseminate information that supports the pseudoscientific nonsense of evolutionary theory. See for contrast my comments to Science, which include many others that address what is currently known about RNA-mediated events, which link the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in species from microbes to man. For example: RNA and dynamic nuclear organization and Combating Evolution to Fight Disease. See also Free Radicals: The Secret Anarchy of Science by Michael Brooks.
Those who challenge evolutionary theory clearly are not welcome. He mentions the fact that Lynn Margulis wrote a book before presenting at conferences and publishing journal articles that peer review serves to limit publication of dissenting information. So did I. See: The Scent of Eros: Mysteries of Odor in Human Sexuality , which was followed by our 1996 review in Hormones and Behavior: From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior.
“Evolutionary conservation, both of pheromonal communication and its importance to behavior, is indicated by the involvement of a key mammalian reproductive hormone. For instance, a yeast pheromone, the alpha-mating factor, is very similar in structure to mammalian gonadotropic releasing hormone (GnRH). When injected into rats, this chemical binds to pituitary GnRH receptors and brings about the release of LH. Loumaye, Thorner, and Catt (1982) note: “GnRH and the yeast alpha-mating factor appear to represent a highly conserved effector system which includes the peptide ligand, the cell-surface receptor, and the physiological regulation of reproductive function” (p. 1325).
Extending this finding to mammalian development we note that from its embryonic origins, the hypothalamic GnRH pulse influences the maturation of the mammalian reproductive system, the neuroendocrine system, and the central nervous system. Though far removed from yeast in ontogeny and phylogeny, the mammalian model, including human studies, supports a role for chemosensory communication that appears to extend to a causal relationship among human pheromones, olfaction, the hypothalamic GnRH pulse, other hormones, including steroid hormones, and human behavior (Kohl, 1996). The following findings are offered as evidence.”
Evolutionary theorists don’t want to listen to people, who say things that refute their ridiculous ideas about mutations and natural selecdtion. For example — reported bySuzan Mazur: Lynn Margulis told me the following in 2009):
“[W]hat Haldane, Fisher, Sewell Wright, Hardy, Weinberg et al. did was invent…. The anglophone tradition was taught. I was taught, and so were my contemporaries, and so were the younger scientists. Evolution was defined as “changes in gene frequencies in natural populations.” The accumulation of genetic mutations was touted to be enough to change one species to another…. No, it wasn’t dishonesty. I think it was wish fulfillment and social momentum. Assumptions, made but not verified, were taught as fact.” — Replace the Modern Synthesis (Neo-Darwinism): An Interview With Denis Noble
What is currently known links the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in the organized genomes of species from microbes to man via biophysically-constrained conserved molecular mechanisms in species from microbes to man. There is no longer any wiggle room from which the evolutionary theorists can tout their ridiculous pseudoscientific claims. Serious scientists make sense out of RNA-mediated events that link nutrient uptake and the metabolism of nutrients to species-specific pheromones to the control of the physiology of reproduction via amino acid substitutions that appear to differentiate cell types from the dawn of the first (e.g., in Biblical Genesis) light-induced amino acid substitutions that differentiated the first created cell type of any genera.
