The concept of a species (4)

Trump Tries to Destroy the West The alliance between the United States and Western Europe has accomplished great things. It won two world wars in the first half of the 20th century. Then it expanded to include its former enemies and went on to win the Cold War, help spread democracy and build the highest living standards the world has ever known. President Trump is trying to destroy that alliance. —– Scientific creationists from South Korea, the “creationist capitol of…

Until death: Virus-driven failure of multisensory integration (3)

What Your Nose Knows: Sense of Smell and Your Health August 2016 What the Nose Knows May Affect Your Brain Health October 2017 Doty’s research found a strong connection between low scores on a 40-item smell test and damage to this area of the brain. His recent article in The Lancet outlines possible ways that sense of smell and overall brain health could be linked and “may be the genesis of many neurodegenerative diseases. See: ”Olfactory dysfunction in neurodegenerative diseases:…

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…

The Mind’s Eyes (revisited)

Author’s copy: The Mind’s Eyes: Human pheromones, neuroscience, and male sexual preferences (2007) Abstract: The across-species genetic conservation of intercellular and extracellular chemical communication enables unicellular and multicellular organisms to functionally distinguish between self and non-self.  Non-self olfactory/pheromonal input from the social environment elicits a vertebrate neuroendocrine response.  The organization and activation of this neuroendocrine response modulates the concurrent maturation of the mammalian neuroendocrine system, the reproductive system, and the central nervous system during the development of sexual preferences that…

Energy-dependent biodiversity (3)

Higher Abundance of Bacteria than of Viruses in Deep Mediterranean Sediments Conclusion: Results obtained in this study suggest that the number of viruses in deep-sea sediments might be dependent upon complex interactions with both abiotic factors (such as pressure, physical disturbance, and redox conditions) and biotic factors, including bacterial metabolic state and virus supply from the water column. Further studies are needed to clarify the causes of the low viral density, to estimate the actual impact of viruses on benthic…

Energy dependent RNA-mediated immunity (6)

Alzheimer’s disease could be caused by herpes virus, warn experts Excerpt: Professor Douglas Kell of the University of Manchester’s School of Chemistry, said “We are saying there is incontrovertible evidence that Alzheimer’s Disease has a dormant microbial component. We can’t keep ignoring all of the evidence.” My comment: What evidence? Microbes and Alzheimer’s Disease is still listed as an in-press publication. Perhaps they are telling others to stop ignoring all my evidence. See for example: Energy dependent RNA-mediated immunity (2)…

Ricki Lewis’ Time Machine

Can a Quirky Chromosome Create a Second Human Species? Excerpt 1) The first departure from the common house mouse (Mus musculus) was the “tobacco mouse” (Mus poschiavinus), described in 1869 from specimens trapped in a tobacco factory in Valle di Poschiavo, Switzerland. They had big heads and small, dark bodies. Excerpt 2) I spoke to Bear back in 2004, again for The Scientist (a mechanism for the rapid extinction of a dedicated freelance writer is a change in editor-in-chief). Greg Bear is…

Center stage RNA-mediated events (since 1996)

‘Junk’ DNA now center stage Excerpt: The implications of these findings can be linked to medical conditions from chronic stress to neurodegenerative diseases. Anna Di Cosmo​’s group, Eugene Daev‘s group, and Bruce McEwen‘s group have linked RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions from atoms to ecosystems and all pathology in all living genera. In the early 90’s, Bruce McEwen told me how to validate my model of cell type differentiation by starting with gene activation. In, Effect of two pyrazine-containing chemosignals on…

Eugene V. Daev: Chronology

Introduction by Eugene Daev Since the very beginning, I suggested that state of stress, which accompanied by sharp hormonal changes (Selye, 1950), ought to have an effect at the genetic level. My group has focused on pheromonal destabilization of mouse genome. We used the urinary pheromones from conspecific males and/or females as sex-specific stressors. Cytogenetic pheromonal effects we discovered supported this idea. We showed the genetic effects (mutagenic and antimutagenic) in vital peripheral organs (bone marrow and germ cells) in…
