Preprints obfuscate facts (1)

How many preprints should be published? If someone posts something crazy like vaccines cause autism, I don’t think respectable news outlets will cover it without first discussing the preprint with experts. The light-activated assembly of the microRNA-RNA-peptide nanocomplex and the cure for all cancer was reported by researchers from Israel and discussion by so-called experts followed: See: A cure for cancer? Israeli scientists say they think they found one 1/28/19 The company is now writing patents on specific peptides, which…

Functionally interdependent editing and methylation

Editing and methylation at a single site by functionally interdependent activities …cytosine 32 in the anticodon loop of Trypanosoma brucei tRNAThr is methylated to 3-methylcytosine (m3C) as a pre-requisite for C-to-U deamination. Formation of m3C in vitro requires the presence of both the T. brucei m3C methyltransferase TRM140 and the deaminase ADAT2/3. Once formed, m3C is deaminated to 3-methyluridine (m3U) by the same set of enzymes. ADAT2/3 is a highly mutagenic enzyme4, but we also show that when co-expressed with…

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…

Hypothesis free pseudoscience vs facts (3)

Nobel-Winning DNA Research Challenges Evolutionary Theory In 2015, three scientists won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for decades of research into DNA—research that reinforces the idea that evolution is mythology and makes the modern evolutionary theory of abiogenesis seem more and more indefensible. It turns out that DNA is inherently unstable, and the preservation of genetic information requires a complex symbiotic relationship between the cell and DNA that is so interdependent that neither could have arisen independently of the other.…

Did “Nature” kill Steve Jobs? (3)

So Many Research Scientists, So Few Openings as Professors Excerpt: Even someone as brilliant as Emmanuelle Charpentier, who in 2015 became head of the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology after a momentous discovery in gene editing, spent the previous 25 years moving through nine institutions in five countries. My comment: Why did she move around so much when in the same year, on 07/02/2015, George Church and colleagues filed a patent application for “RNA-Guided Human Genome Engineering.” Excerpt: Repetitive…
