Draining the academic swamp of parasites

National Academies Revise Conflict of Interest Policy The proposed changes follow revelations in recent years that committee members preparing reports for the Academies did not disclose industry relationships. By Ashley P. Taylor | May 3, 2017 Excerpt: They are also thinking about including not only current activities and relationships, as they do now, but past ones when determining whether or not a committee member has a COI. See for comparison: Ian Hodder: Çatalhöyük, Religion & Templeton’s 25% My comment: Past…

In an attempt to discuss Breakthrough in understanding how stem cells become specialized More than two years ago, he wrote: We house our animal mouse models in…

Respiration-dependent endogenous RNA interference

If you are a theorist, please take a deep breath before beginning to read this. The speed of light on contact with water has been linked from the level of oxygen on Earth to all biodiversity via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction and the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of all morphological and behavioral phenotypes in all living genera. @jvkohl 15h15 hours ago  It’s “game over” for all theorists. There’s a new game in town. https://www.kicktraq.com/projects/geniusgames/cytosis-a-cell-biology-board-game/ … It’s an evolutionary theory killer. @jvkohl…

Epigenetically-effected nucleosome repositioning sheds Dobzhansky’s light on evolution

Crystal structure of the overlapping dinucleosome composed of hexasome and octasome My summary: Nucleosomes are dynamic entities that are repositioned by energy-dependent links from sunlight to ATP and RNA biosynthesis that act on DNA during the chromatin remodeling, which is biophysically constrained by the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction during the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of all morphological and behavioral phentoypes. processes. Reported as: Unveiling how nucleosome repositioning occurs to shed light on genetic diseases …an incomplete formation of overlapping dinucleosome may…

Harvard researchers support young earth creationism

A conserved NAD+ binding pocket that regulates protein-protein interactions during aging March 24, 2017 (Science) Reported as: Also reported as:  It’s Happening: Scientists Can Now Reverse DNA Ageing in Mice Excerpts: When we’re born, all of our cells have the ability to repair DNA damage, which we experience constantly through random mutations when our cells divide, or whenever we go out in the sun. But as we get older, our ability to patch up this damage declines, and our cells…

Sal Giardina: apologetics revisited

March 26, 2017 Sal Giardina wrote: “James, I appreciate your responding to my posts but I would prefer that your input would be related to the content of the post.” My reply: If you do not want people to learn how my claims are linked to yours, please tell me that you intend to continue with apologetics rather the concept of energy as information. Apologetics: … the religious discipline of defending or proving the truth of religious doctrines through systematic…

Who will kill the billion dollar baby? Bill Gates or Donald Trump

Bill Gates is set to meet with the President on Monday. [March 20, 2017] Both men know that virus-driven energy theft is the biggest threat humanity has ever faced. The threat arose in the context of wasted US government funding and wasted funding from philanthropists who supported the CRISPR gene-editing technology. For comparison, The Penrose Institute appears to be prepared to establish itself as a refuge for serious scientists who have been cast out of academia for their failure to…

Food for thought: Penrose v Ellis (1)

Food for thought.   The most popular ideas of atheists may still include hypothetical biogenic features that arrived from outer space. That’s how pseudoscientific nonsense appears to become a fact of life on Earth.   All experimental evidence of energy-dependent biologically-based cause and effect must be suppressed or ignored, and that’s what atheists prefer to do. See for instance: Hypothetical biogenic features in the context of the Alan Hills fossil. (Thanks to John Hewitt for reminding me of this.) On…

Energy-dependent pheromone-controlled entropy (3)

See: Energy-dependent pheromone-controlled entropy (2) Let’s make peer review scientific …peer review is often biased and inefficient. It is occasionally corrupt, sometimes a charade, an open temptation to plagiarists. Even with the best of intentions, how and whether peer review identifies high-quality science is unknown. It is, in short, unscientific. Here’s another failed attempt to put top-down causation back into the context of peer review. Electron transfer between anatase TiO2 and an O2 molecule directly observed by atomic force microscopy…

Energy-dependent pheromone-controlled entropy (4)

Solar-driven reforming of lignocellulose to H2 with a CdS/CdOx photocatalyst Reported as: Scientists harness solar power to produce clean hydrogen from biomass They claim that the rigid structure of nature’s equivalent to armored concrete evolved to protect plants and trees from degradation. They don’t make claims about what might cause the degradation. They start with the likelihood that degradation automagically occurs. That led them to design a combination of catalyst and solution that mimics how the anti-entropic energy of sunlight…
