Ecological adaptations vs the randomness of evolution (3)

Summary: Fifty years later, only theorists and other pseudoscientists have failed to recognize the facts that link experimental evidence of differences in the energy of photons to the proton motive force, which links the potential of hydrogen (pH) to biophysically constrained viral latency and all biodiversity on Earth. In that context, Carl Zimmer serves as an important example of human idiocy each time he makes claims about evolution. Serious scientists will meet during Schrödinger at 75 – The Future of…

Autophagy in health and disease (1)

Novel Treatment Strategies for the Nervous System: Circadian Clock Genes, Non-coding RNAs, and Forkhead Transcription Factors Each of these pathways have an intimate relationship with the programmed death pathways of autophagy and apoptosis and share a common link to the silent mating type information regulation 2 homolog 1 (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) (SIRT1) and the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR). Circadian clock genes are necessary to modulate autophagy, limit cognitive loss, and prevent neuronal injury. Non-coding RNAs can control neuronal stem cell…

Carl Zimmer refutes theistic evolution (1)

Primers: From photons to the proton motive force (1) and From photons to the proton motive force (2) George Church, Feng Zhang, Francis S. Collins, Stuart Kauffman, Emily Witkin, and Bill Gates are joined by Carl Zimmer. All have now refuted theistic evolution via their failed attempts to link photons from mutations to the proton motive force, or their ridiculous claims linked to the magic of evolution. Carl Zimmer may be the only so-called science journalist to have published a…

Ecological adaptation: a new definition of heredity (4)

Experimentally Induced Metamorphosis in Axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum) Under Constant Diet Restructures Microbiota Accompanied by Reduced Limb Regenerative Capacity (2018) Our results show that distinct bacterial communities inhabit individual organs of Axolotl and undergo substantial restructuring through metamorphosis. The restructuring during metamorphosis is biophysically constrained by feedback loops that link olfaction from food odors and pheromones to the creation of enzymes in bacteria and the secretion of the vertebrate decapeptide hormone GnRH (gonadotropin releasing hormone). See: Gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist binding in…

Ecological adaptation: A new definition of heredity (1)

Excerpt: ” …long-standing presumptions led to the claims made by biologically uninformed theorists who failed to link biophysically constrained viral latency to the recent origin of most protein-coding variants via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in species from microbes to humans…” She Has Her Mother’s Laugh: The Powers, Perversions, and Potential of Heredity May 29, 2018 | 672 Pages From the description of the book: 1) We need a new definition of what heredity is… 2) …Zimmer ultimately unpacks urgent…

Cryo-EM: Linking spatial and conformational constraints

On Darwin Day (2018) Carl Zimmer suggested use of the twitter hashtag #Istudyevolution to report whatever aspect of biology people were studying. For example, Richard Lenski reported that he studied adaptation in E. coli. When I told others that ecological adaptation is nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled in species from microbes to humans, he blocked me from seeing his comments. Evidently he did not want people to know that he had been studying ecological adaptation for more than 2 decades but reporting…

An evolutionary theory killer

A reversible TCA cycle in a thermophile

Make no mistake, pseudoscientists have stolen the soul of science for more than 20 years, with their ridiculous claims about mutations and evolution. For comparison, see: “…considering that we have just 3 such round Nos ‘100’ ‘1000’ ‘10000’, its just three out of all realistic possibilities, no? Admit its looks cool just bec. we calc in Dec system. History books claims was invented by ancient societies; but I think its evolution: We have 10 fingers!” My reply (SARCASM ALERT): Thanks.…

The MicroRNAome Strikes Back: A Sokalian hoax (6)

The nature of nurture: Effects of parental genotypes Science  January 26, 2018 …nontransmitted alleles can affect a child through their impacts on the parents and other relatives, a phenomenon we call “genetic nurture.” It doesn’t matter what they call it, since there is no defined boundary between genetics and epigenetics. Reported as: You Are Shaped by the Genes You Inherit. And Maybe by Those You Don’t by Carl Zimmer January 25, 2018 A calf may inherit those milk-boosting variants from its mother. But…

A mental health problem at the highest level (2)

Biologically uninformed theorists and so-called science journalists have ignored their own mental health issues and focussed their attention on the mental health of serious scientists. Some of the serious scientists advise the President of the United States in attempts to help him make America great again by draining the political and academic swamps. It is time to examine the personality disorders of theorists and biologically uninformed journalists for comparison to the mental health of serious scientists and the President of…

Diet-driven RNA interference and cancer prevention

The food energy-dependent creation of one enzyme is the key to the effective treatment and/or prevention of colorectal cancer. The creation of enzymes prevents the creation of viral microRNAs. The food energy-dependent creation of one or more enzymes limits the ability of different viruses to steal more quantized energy. That is the basis for my claims about biophysically constrained viral latency. Moreover, all pathology is caused by the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA. See: Engineered commensal microbes for diet-mediated colorectal-cancer…
