The eternal significance of microRNAs and the Vietnam Memorial (1)

Researchers who believe in the mutation-driven evolution of species and mutation-driven differences in human populations have invented another ridiculous hypothesis. Now, they believe in mathematical models that infer: Cultural hitchhiking and competition between patrilineal kin groups explain the post-Neolithic Y-chromosome bottleneck In human populations, changes in genetic variation are driven not only by genetic processes, but can also arise from cultural or social changes. An abrupt population bottleneck specific to human males has been inferred across several Old World (Africa,…

DNA repair via junk DNA (2)

See also: DNA repair via junk DNA (1) Recently Evolved Genes Identified From Drosophila yakuba and D. erecta Accessory Gland Expressed Sequence Tags (2006) Reported in Singer (2015) as: In 2006, Begun found some of the first evidence that genes could indeed pop into existence from noncoding DNA. Singer’s claim that genes automagically pop into existence is consistent with Masatoshi Nei’s conclusion in: Mutation-Driven Evolution …genomic conservation and constraint-breaking mutation is the ultimate source of all biological innovations and the…
