Orchestrated death: Francis S. Collins

MicroRNA-155 and antiviral immune responses 10/8/21 The microRNA, miR-155 regulates both adaptive and innate immune responses. …dysregulated expression of miR-155 can result in virus persistence and disruption of the normal response to viral infections. This collaboration among researchers from Iran, UCLA, and South Africa attests to facts that led Francis S. Collins to resign as NIH director. See first: Collins was the first to plan his escape from prosecution. Watch this blog site as others get thrown under the bus…

Anti-entropic sunlight: Schrödinger’s Creationist Secret? (4)

Summary: Antagonists such as John Hewitt have exhausted my patience. Now see this: The authors invented the term “phosphate steering”  in an attempt to obfuscate what has been known to all serious scientists about oxidative phosphorylation for more than 50 years. See: “oxidative phosphorylation” microRNA  (105 entries); “oxidative phosphorylation” (21955 entries) and “phosphate steering” (1 entry) Compare the nonsense about phosphae steering to facts in the context of Modern diversification of the amino acid repertoire driven by oxygen (2017) published…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (7)

Conclusion: The biggest threat to humanity is not the “Big Bang” theory of creation or the “Big Bang” theory of how life on Earth might end after an explosion of cosmic proportions. The biggest threat has always been “human idiocy.” 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Awarded to International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons “for its work to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of…

Epigenetic effects of stress by Bruce McEwen (1)

A rendering of how changes in an electron’s motion (bottom view) alter the scattering of light (top view), as measured in a new experiment that scattered more than 500 photons of light from a single electron. Previous experiments had managed to scatter no more than a few photons at a time. Credit: Extreme Light Laboratory|University of Nebraska-Lincoln Summary: In the early 1990’s, Bruce McEwen inspired my life’s works, which link the epigenetic effects of nutrient-stress and/or social stress to the fact…

Respiration-dependent endogenous RNA interference

If you are a theorist, please take a deep breath before beginning to read this. The speed of light on contact with water has been linked from the level of oxygen on Earth to all biodiversity via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction and the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of all morphological and behavioral phenotypes in all living genera. @jvkohl 15h15 hours ago  It’s “game over” for all theorists. There’s a new game in town. https://www.kicktraq.com/projects/geniusgames/cytosis-a-cell-biology-board-game/ … It’s an evolutionary theory killer. @jvkohl…

From nothing to life and death everywhere

Astronomers in South Africa discover mysterious alignment of black holes Excerpt 1) This implies that there is a coherent spin in the structure of this volume of space that was formed from the primordial mass fluctuations that seeded the creation of the large-scale structure of the universe. Excerpt 2) “This is not obviously expected based on our current understanding of cosmology. It’s a bizarre finding.” Excerpt 3) A large-scale spin distribution has never been predicted by theories – and an…

Assembling yourself: Molecular self / other recognition

Chiral recognition and selection during the self-assembly process of protein-mimic macroanions Abstract excerpt: “We believe that delicate long-range electrostatic interactions could be responsible for such high-level chiral recognition and selection.” Article excerpt: “This self-assembly allows relatively simple building blocks to organize themselves into larger supramolecular structures, a phenomenon that has parallels with the formation of viral capsids (both in morphology and kinetics)37.” Reported as: Discovery demystifies origin of life chirality phenomenon Excerpt: “The origin of life is still a mystery…

Let there be anti-entropic light (1)

Summary: Light-induced amino acid substitutions link cell type differentiation in plants to nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled reproduction in animals via the biophysically constrained chemistry of protein folding. Protein folding is perturbed by mutations that limit the ability of organisms to adapt to ecological variation. Viruses contribute to mutations. The sun’s biological energy appears to supply the anti-entropic force that links entropic elasticity to the development of successful morphological and behavioral phenotypes that are exemplified in extant versus extinct biodiversity. The importance of…
