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?
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
Evolution 2.0 is the Facebook group for the book of the same name. I’ve had limited success with attempts to discuss any aspect of RNA-mediated ecological adaptations on this blog or on my FB Group and welcome the opportunity to refer people to another source of accurate information, despite caveats about millions of years of evolution that I may address later.
For now, the caveats are too technical, and they merely echo the claims of Dobzhanky (1964). I’ve mentioned his claims about bird-watchers and butterfly collectors compared to serious scientists many times before, and they no longer matter in the context of information dissemination about biologically-based cause and effect.
The bottom line is that all serious scientists are Combating Evolution to Fight Disease by linking RNA-mediated cell type differentiation from atoms to ecosystems. Models that link atoms to ecosystems can be effectively compared to ridiculous neo-Darwinian theories.
See this parody for example. It starts with energy-dependent base pair changes that link atoms to ecosystems.
So does this model: Nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations: from atoms to ecosystems. I refer to it as a model because it was an invited review of nutritional epigenetics, and the invitation was due to my prior publication of Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model, and a series of other published works that linked RNA-mediated cell type differentiation from species of microbes to humans via amino acid substitutions.
Others have continued to address the role that nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions play during the development of morphological and behavioral phenotypes, but experts in different disciplines cannot be expected to link physics and chemistry to the conserved molecular mechanisms of cell type differentiation in all living genera. The experts are forced to specialize, because their specialization makes them experts in different disciplines.
For example, Jennifer Doudna is an expert on the dual use technology of gene editing. Her expertise makes her afraid of the ignorance displayed by others.
“It is very important to consider the unintended genetic consequences of making an intended change, because there are all sorts of genetic interactions that occur in cells during cellular development — especially in humans, but also other organisms,” Doudna said.
My comment: No matter how many times an expert like Doudna advises caution, which she does because others do not know how RNA-mediated cell type differentiation is biophysically constrained, ideas about beneficial constraint-breaking mutations will continue to drive funding that probably will lead to drastic consequences linked to the dual use CRISPR-Cas technologies.
Most of the funding will come from the evolution industry until the entirety of government funding that also supports the big-bang cosmology industry links the pseudoscientific nonsense of emergence and neo-Darwinian theories about biodiversity to the death of us all.
Until then, let’s have some fun with the idea that the biologically uniformed can control what they claim is mutation-driven evolution. See this interview by Jon Stewart of Greg Bear.
Now, back to the world of serious scientists.
Reported as: Cooperating bacteria isolate cheaters
Bacteria, which reciprocally exchange amino acids, stabilize their partnership on two-dimensional surfaces and limit the access of non-cooperating bacteria to the exchanged nutrients.
Just like the neurons in our brain, we found that bacteria use ion channels to communicate with each other through electrical signals,” said Süel. “In this way, the community of bacteria within biofilms appears to function much like a ‘microbial brain’.”
This comment invited a series of attacks for the next several days:
The obvious link from ecological variation and either nutrient stress or social stress to pathology is virus perturbed protein folding, which can be placed into the context of mutations and pathology but not into the context of RNA-mediated events that link nutrients and controlled social stress to healthy longevity in all living genera.
Within the next month, I was banned from participation on the Phys.org site. The claim was that I was posting PSEUDOSCIENCE
The fact that Cockroaches communicate via bacteria in their feces inspired this comment (but I have added back the hyperlinks):
The RNA from his white blood cells was sequenced to determine his gene expression, which was then compared to his brain function.
The researchers found a strong correlation between brain activity and changes in the expression of many different families of genes. They also found that expression of genes related to inflammation and immune response matched Poldrack’s psoriasis flare-ups.
My comment: The researchers who claim to have found “a strong correlation between brain activity and changes in the expression of many different families of genes” failed to recognize that they found the link from atoms to ecosystems via microRNAs, cell adhesion proteins, and supercoiled DNA that links what is known about nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in species from microbes to humans via the conserved molecular epigenetics that we detailed in our 1996 review. From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior.
