New Testament Book Cover Refutes Theistic Evolution

Video of Biology of the Book Goats, bookworms, a monk’s kiss: Biologists reveal the hidden history of ancient gospels Collins already had developed a method to identify ancient species by differences in the amino acid sequences of collagen and other proteins preserved in fossils. See: Protein power by Robert F. Service …methods to sequence amino acids lag behind DNA sequencing. The report of 300 million year old proteins is based on ridiculous theories that failed to include what was known about…

CRISPR Cas9 technology refutes theistic evolution

Summary: RNA-guided human genome engineering presents a direct conflict to claims made in the context of CRISPR–Cas9 editing, which creates more mutations. The repair of mutations is nutrient energy-dependent and virus-driven energy theft is biophysically constrained by the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction. The unexpected mutations are examples of ignorance expressed by theorists in the claims about evolution. The theorists seem reluctant to admit to the facts about RNA-mediated cell type differentiation because it is energy-dependent, and most of them don’t…

Johns Hopkins researchers support mutation-driven evolution

See also: Harvard researchers support young earth creationism Stem cell divisions, somatic mutations, cancer etiology, and cancer prevention March 24, 2017 (Science) There are at least four sources of R mutations in normal cells: quantum effects on base pairing (30), mistakes made by polymerases (31), hydrolytic deamination of bases (32), and damage by endogenously produced reactive oxygen species or other metabolites (33). The last of these could theoretically be reduced by the administration of antioxidant drugs (34). The effects of…

Ecological genomics: teleophobes respond (too late)

Forecasting Ecological Genomics: High-Tech Animal Instrumentation Meets High-Throughput Sequencing Conclusion: Twenty years ago, an essay about sequencing genomes and remotely tracking animals across the globe in real time would have been the subject of science fiction. In 2015, there are over 50,000 animals being tracked [12], and single research groups now sequence dozens, up to hundreds, of individual genomes [17,82]. By embracing new technology and integrating these data streams into an ecological genomic framework (Fig 1), we are now poised…

RNA eclipses the importance of DNA to cell type differentiation

Why skin cells are skin cells and not neurons Excerpt: “…we’re using this approach to identify how the epigenome changes when plants are exposed to challenging environmental conditions, such as drought or high temperature, and how these changes might prime the plants for greater tolerance of subsequent exposures.” My comment: The ‘approach’ is DNA methylation at a time when RNA sequencing has since revealed how the epigenetic landscape becomes the physical landscape of DNA in the organized genomes of species…
