Virus-mediated archaeal hecatomb in the deep seafloor

Carl Zimmer refutes theistic evolution (2)

Carl Zimmer refutes theistic evolution (1) Carl Zimmer recognizes the need for a new definition of what heredity is. But he refuses to tell others what he knows about the role that viruses play in the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of all pathology. Examples of inherited pathology typically include his misrepresentations among others who fail to link ecological variation to ecological adaptation in the context of energy-dependent biophysically constrained viral latency. See: Ancient Viruses Are Buried in Your DNA  by Carl…

Ecological adaptation: A new definition of heredity (3)

Excerpt: Moving forward: Novel and Haplotype Specific MicroRNAs Encoded by the Major Histocompatibility Complex …these data suggest that a subset of the identified novel miRNAs may contribute to the pathophysiology of numerous diseases, laying the groundwork for future studies to elucidate the functional connections of miRNAs to the numerous diseases associated with sequence variants within non-coding regions of the MHC. OMCD: OncoMir Cancer Database Dysregulation of miRNAs is commonly observed in cancers and it largely cancer dependent. The virus-driven theft…

Creating biophysically constrained viral latency (2)

Creating biophysically constrained viral latency (2) Serious scientists have reached the point where they are finally ready to expose the pseudoscientific nonsense during Evolution – Genetic Novelty/Genomic Variations by RNA Networks and Viruses and also during Schrödinger at 75 – The Future of Biology – September 2018. Until then, pseudoscientists may want to see these examples of accurate information about top-down causation. MicroRNA Processing Gene Methylation and Cancer Risk Methylation of three CpGs (DROSHA: cg23230564, TNRC6B: cg06751583, and TNRC6B: cg21034183) was prospectively…

Conceptual critique: Innateness vs the death gene (2)

Excerpt: Martie Haselton notes “…there’s a hidden adaptive intelligence that has been shaped over eons. Martie Haselton places that ecological adaptation into the context of the claim that “…our bodies are designed to fight off invaders, whether they take the form of a cold virus… (p 73.) and she mentions the link from the designer to one theory about menstruation: “female bleeding serves to flush out “bad” sperm that may carry bacteria, viruses and other pathogens.” (p. 84) See also:…

Cryo-EM: Linking spatial and conformational constraints

On Darwin Day (2018) Carl Zimmer suggested use of the twitter hashtag #Istudyevolution to report whatever aspect of biology people were studying. For example, Richard Lenski reported that he studied adaptation in E. coli. When I told others that ecological adaptation is nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled in species from microbes to humans, he blocked me from seeing his comments. Evidently he did not want people to know that he had been studying ecological adaptation for more than 2 decades but reporting…

The MicroRNAome Strikes Back: A Sokalian hoax (6)

The nature of nurture: Effects of parental genotypes Science  January 26, 2018 …nontransmitted alleles can affect a child through their impacts on the parents and other relatives, a phenomenon we call “genetic nurture.” It doesn’t matter what they call it, since there is no defined boundary between genetics and epigenetics. Reported as: You Are Shaped by the Genes You Inherit. And Maybe by Those You Don’t by Carl Zimmer January 25, 2018 A calf may inherit those milk-boosting variants from its mother. But…

The MicroRNAome Strikes Back: A Sokalian hoax (2)

The problem with -omics has repeatedly been detailed in articles from social scientists and other theorists who fail to link what is known to serious scientists about the microRNAome to their theories. Pseudoscientists continue to create bricks that clutter the metaphorical physical landscape and prevent the epigenetic landscape from being linked from the physiology of nutrient energy-dependent pheromone-controlled reproduction to all cell type differentiation via energy-dependent changes in atoms to ecosystems in all living genera. On 1/22/18, I discussed this with…

Energy-dependent base editing and correction of mutations (2)

On 12/10/17, a long-term business partner called to tell me he was ending his efforts to sell human pheromone-enhanced fragrance products to those who understand how the products help to biophysically constrain viral latency in all mammals. QuEBS workshop has established itself as an outstanding stage to present the research in the intersection of physics, chemistry and biology.

Schrodinger’s answer to Schrodinger’s question

There is no such thing as de novo control of electrons or self-assembly. Answering Schrödinger’s question: A free-energy formulation The free-energy principle (FEP) is a formal model of neuronal processes that is widely recognised in neuroscience as a unifying theory of the brain and biobehaviour. More recently, however, it has been extended beyond the brain to explain the dynamics of living systems, and their unique capacity to avoid decay. They don’t understand the question that Schrodinger answered. He linked the…
