Manufacturing fossil “evidence”

An antagonist suggests that it is appropriate to use math models to fill in the analagous missing dots, which in this case involved manufacturing evidence to be included in the fossil record. ‘Virtual fossil’ reveals last common ancestor of humans and Neanderthals My comment: Serious scientists do not use math models to link atoms to Manufacturing fossil “evidence”

RNA-mediated theory killers (5)

Epigenetic regulation of puberty via Zinc finger protein-mediated transcriptional repression Reported as: Researchers elucidate network of genes that control when puberty begins Excerpt: …have identified for the first time members of an elaborate superfamily of genes that regulate the timing of puberty in highly evolved nonhuman primates. My comment: Who do these researches and science RNA-mediated theory killers (5)

RNA-mediated theory killers (3)

  Ghosts in the Genome How one generation’s experience can affect the next By Oliver J. Rando | December 1, 2015 My comment: “…epigenetic information carriers include covalent modifications to nucleotides and histones, providing a wide variety of mechanisms that enable organisms to transmit information extragenomically.” When this was placed into its proper perspective, it RNA-mediated theory killers (3)

Natural cooperation and Evolution 2.0

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? Conclusion:  We speculate that miRNAs emerged during evolution to increase the complexity Natural cooperation and Evolution 2.0

A two-faced protein enables RNA-mediated DNA repair (2)

A two-faced protein enables RNA-mediated DNA repair See also: Abundant contribution of short tandem repeats to gene expression variation in humans (subscription required) Excerpt: …suggesting that STRs have a key role in the evolution of expression. Indeed, several candidate gene studies in humans reported that STR variations modulate gene expression19,33–37 and alternative splicing… Reported as:  A two-faced protein enables RNA-mediated DNA repair (2)

Stress-perturbed mitochondrial dysfunction (2)

See also: Stress-perturbed mitochondrial dysfunction Biologically uniformed science idiots either refuse to discuss facts or try to bury them beneath the pseudoscientific nonsense of their ridiculous claims. Study connects mitochondria to psychological stress response and species resilience See the discussion of this news report on the Neuroscience FB group. With one exception, I’ve included only Stress-perturbed mitochondrial dysfunction (2)

Virus, transposon and plasmid evolution

A novel group of diverse Polinton-like viruses discovered by metagenome analysis Excerpt: This class of selfish elements is extremely widespread and might have been a hotbed of eukaryotic virus, transposon and plasmid evolution. New families of these elements are expected to be discovered. My comment: How much longer will Koonin’s group keep trying to convince Virus, transposon and plasmid evolution

Can veterans and other prisoners escape pseudoscience?

Combating Evolution to Fight Disease “…an important gap is being filled by molecular understanding of the genesis of variation that confers the ability to evolve.” Inside the drive to collect DNA from 1 million veterans and revolutionize medicine Excerpt 1) The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is gathering blood from 1 million veterans to sequence Can veterans and other prisoners escape pseudoscience?
