Biophysically constrained beginnings of RNA and DNA

Any anonymous participant in the discussion of: DNA may have had humble beginnings as nutrient carrier (Sep 01, 2014 by Adam Hadhazy) asks: “when are you going to keep quiet?” In a series of responses, I have explained the problem I have with honoring his request. The following excerpts from Wikipedia and other sources are loosely strung together because there is no point to providing more extensive details of biologically-based cause and effect until others accept the fact that mutations…

Soft atheism: a case for Creation

The Case for ‘Soft Atheism’ By GARY GUTTING   Excerpt: “…much as I admire Dawkins’s work in evolutionary biology and in enhancing the public understanding of science…” My comment: The case against evolution. Quantitative analysis of RNA-protein interactions on a massively parallel array reveals biophysical and evolutionary landscapes Biophysical constraints that enable the intermolecular tethering of RNA to DNA also link the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA via the conserved molecular mechanisms of RNA-mediated events in species from…

MiRNAs methylation and ecological adaptation sans mutations

MiRNAs methylation and ecological adaptation sans mutations  “Our 2003 Molecular and Cellular Biology paper …opened the mechanistic ‘black box’ of the developmental origins of adult disease susceptibility, and firmly placed the word, epigenetics, in the vernacular of this research field.”  — Randy Jirtle (2009) Our 1996 Hormones and Behavior paper included a section on molecular epigenetics with evidence that attested to the involvement of epigenetics in the context of olfactory/pheromonal input and the developmental origins of hormone-organized and hormone-activated adult sexual behavior.…

The wrong picture of our evolution

“We have built a picture of our evolution based on the morphology of fossils and it was wrong.” I’ve repeatedly cited the latest literature, especially in the context of Skull 5. The article linked below is another clear representation of how the wrong picture of our evolution was built via a series of misrepresentations that ignored biological constraints while theorists touted mutation-initiated natural selection. Why don’t they simply admit that they are wrong, so others can move on? Fifty years…

Don't tell the Creationists

Misquoting Science in the Texas Textbook Battles James A. Shapiro Author, ‘Evolution: A View from the 21st Century’; Professor of Microbiology, University of Chicago Posted: 12/05/2013 3:57 pm Excerpt: “Uncovering the molecular mechanisms by which living organisms modify their genomes is a major accomplishment of late 20th Century molecular biology.” Collectively, I call these processes Natural Genetic Engineering. Symbiogenetic cell fusions, horizontal DNA transfer, mutagenic DNA repair, reverse transcription of RNA into DNA, mobile genetic elements, interspecific hybridization and whole…
