The death of CRISPR; long live endogenous RNAi

The future of human genome editing Published online 26 April 2017 …there are currently few genetic arguments for the necessity of correcting the genetic material of future generations given preimplantation diagnosis of monogenic conditions. The death of the CRISPR Cas9 may seem to have come quickly, but see also: Kalevi Kull: Censorship & Royal Society Evo Event Nobody wants to belong to the party of losers. One of the best strategies in such a case is evidently an interpretation of…

Charles Darwin refutes theistic evolution

Charles Darwin wrote: IF under changing conditions of life… …variability is generally related to the conditions of life… …we cannot tell how much to attribute to the accumulative action of natural selection, and how much to the definite action of the conditions of life. …during the process of modification, each has become adapted to the conditions of life… Charles Darwin placed his energy-dependent “conditions of life” first. He knew that natural selection could not occur outside the context of the…

Emily Witkin refutes theistic evolution

February 21, 2017 The SOS Response in Bacteria Her professor/advisor was Theodosius Dobzhansky. She watched as Barbara McClintock indirectly linked the tobacco mosaic virus from Thomas Hunt Morgan’s work on chromosomal inheritance, and she helped link virus-driven energy theft to all biodiversity via experimental evidence of DNA repair. Now that the structure and function of supercoiled DNA has linked the effects of sunlight to all biodiversity via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in species from bacteria to humans, why does…

Pseudoscientists fail to refute theistic evolution

Darwinism for the Genomic Age: Connecting Mutation to Diversification …the chief cause of our natural unwillingness to admit that one species has given birth to other and distinct species, is that we are always slow in admitting any great change of which we do not see the intermediate steps. (Darwin, 1859) Darwin put energy-dependent “conditions of life” before what is now known about natural selection for codon optimality. That is the chief cause for ignoring anything that neo-Darwinists claim about…

Energy is information. Objections over ruled. You’re fired!

Objection: In the law of the United States of America, an objection is a formal protest raised in court during a trial to disallow a witness’s testimony or other evidence which would be in violation of the rules of evidence or other procedural law. Americanism (ideology) links the laws of United States of America to God’s “Laws of Biology.”  Pseudoscientists violated the rules of evidence that link Darwin’s “conditions of life” from God’s “Laws of Biology” to all nutrient energy-dependent…

Happy Darwin Day (2017)

My series of blog posts about the refutation of theistic evolution by George Church led him to contact me via email. He asked why he would get credit for or against the refutations He claimed he was trained in quantum physics. He claimed that he has authored peer reviewed papers on protein folding, biodiversity, supercoiling, etc. He wanted to know more but did not know enough about my target audience to realize why I included information about the viral hecatomb.…

George Church refutes theistic evolution

Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series (WALS) – The future of genetic codes and BRAIN codes The NIH Director’s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series, colloquially known as WALS, is the highest-profile lecture program at the NIH. The future of genetic codes and BRAIN codes (video) My comment on the video: Biophysically constrained genetic codes are brain codes. They link the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of supercoiled DNA via metabolic networks, which link energy as information to all cell type differentiation in…

Fighting for virus-driven pathology

See my series of 5 posts on the tipping point, which was reached when more than 50,000 indexed publications mentioned microRNAs The tipping point? 50, 000 publications May 16, 2016 See also: MicroRNA analysis in mouse neuro-2a cells after pseudorabies virus infection A total of eight viral miRNA were identified, and ten host miRNAs showed significantly different expression upon PRV infection. Among these, five were analyzed by stem-loop RT-qPCR, which confirmed the above data. Interestingly, these viral miRNAs were mainly…

Trump’s appeal to common sense

Darwin Applied to Trump: Can Evolutionary Theory Help Us Understand the Appeal of Donald Trump? The 2016 election tightened the grip that conservatives have on US politics and this could pose a severe threat to the funding of scholarship in the social sciences and humanities in the country. Darwin’s energy-dependent “conditions of life” linked what organisms eat to their pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction. That fact links survival of our species to the survival of all other species on Earth. Many…

Mutations: the “driving force” behind human brain complexity?

Evolutionary Psychology Crap in New Scientist There is a reason why domestic violence is so widespread, says David Buss, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Texas in Austin: it carries a selective advantage, tied with reproductive success. Larry Moran wrote: There’s something seriously wrong with evolutionary psychology. And there’s something seriously wrong with respectable science magazines who promote this crap. Are the science magazines that promote this crap respectable? I lost respect for anyone who still uses de Vries…
