Summary: To claim evolution, Koonin must link food energy from the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction to fixation of a beneficial mutation in the organized genome of one species that evolved into another species.

12 Essential Scientific Concepts It is important to note that this representation of essential concepts is made by Professor Indre Viskontas, who uses the opportunity to try to sell others on her atheistic perspective. Presenting her ridiculous perspective as if it represented any scientific concepts is akin to presentations by Richard Dawkins, Dan Dennett, Steven … Essential pseudoscientific concepts of atheism
Astrophysical phenomenology meets pheromone-ology: Slugs that “eat light” Theoretical physics and molecular biology can be compared in the context of their explanatory power. For example (with my emphasis): Theoretical physics (2015): Firewall Phenomenology with Astrophysical Neutrinos Abstract: One of the most fundamental features of a black hole in general relativity is its event horizon: a … Theoretical physics and molecular biology
I have repeatedly used the phrase “RNA-directed DNA methylation and RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions” in the context of links from the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in the organized genomes of species from microbes to man. See for example: RNA-mediated, with links to ~200 blog posts. In the introduction to my 2012 … RNA-mediated epigenetic modification via DNA-methylation
The Wisdom of the Fly Crowds by Ed Yong Excerpt: “This is a landmark study of collective behaviour,” says Iain Couzin… “Never before has it been possible to unweave the intricate coding of social behaviour during collective decision-making.” When it comes to fruit flies, scientists… can really start to understand the origins of collective behaviour—how … Understanding cell type differentiation
Does evolutionary theory need a rethink? Excerpt 1) “…the theory neglects key processes, say Kevin Laland and colleagues.” My comment: “Olfaction and odor receptors provide a clear evolutionary trail that can be followed from unicellular organisms to insects to humans (Keller et al., 2007; Kohl, 2007; Villarreal, 2009; Vosshall, Wong, & Axel, 2000).” — Human … Eliminating evolutionary theory
Has anyone else detailed the required bottom-up/top-down reciprocity of the adaptively evolved gene, cell, tissue, organ, organ system pathway, which is exemplified in the honeybee model organism I used to link the adaptive evolution of microbes to man?
Why does anyone need to explain free will as the absence of human cannibalism in most societies, when it is largely absent across adaptive evolution that has occurred via ecological, social, neurogenic, and socio-cognitive niche construction?
Evolution of the genotype and its phenotypic expression can only be coherently addressed via the gene, cell, tissue, organ, organ system pathway. No part of this pathway lies outside the congruency of consilience.
Philosophical consistency incorporates what is currently known about the across-species consistency of molecular mechanisms.
