12 Essential Scientific Concepts It is important to note that this representation of essential concepts is made by Professor Indre Viskontas, who uses the opportunity to try to sell others on her atheistic perspective. Presenting her ridiculous perspective as if it represented any scientific concepts is akin to presentations by Richard Dawkins, Dan Dennett, Steven … Essential pseudoscientific concepts of atheism
I have repeatedly used the phrase “RNA-directed DNA methylation and RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions” in the context of links from the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in the organized genomes of species from microbes to man. See for example: RNA-mediated, with links to ~200 blog posts. In the introduction to my 2012 … RNA-mediated epigenetic modification via DNA-methylation
Mosquito Genomes Galore Whole-genome sequences of 16 different mosquito species reveal rapid evolution and could inform malaria research. By Ruth Williams | November 27, 2014 Excerpt: “…mosquitoes are rapidly evolving, exhibiting high degrees of gene gains, losses, shuffling, and even transmission between closely related species.” It is the reports on rapid evolution of insects that … Extensive molecular evidence vs ridiculous theories
Does evolutionary theory need a rethink? Excerpt 1) “…the theory neglects key processes, say Kevin Laland and colleagues.” My comment: “Olfaction and odor receptors provide a clear evolutionary trail that can be followed from unicellular organisms to insects to humans (Keller et al., 2007; Kohl, 2007; Villarreal, 2009; Vosshall, Wong, & Axel, 2000).” — Human … Eliminating evolutionary theory
Olfactory Receptor Patterning in a Higher Primate Excerpt: We found that TAARs are also expressed in the macaque OE, suggesting that these receptors may also function as chemosensory receptors in the human nose. My comment: The article links the senior author’s prior works from nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated events and the de novo Creation of odorant receptor … Pattern recognition and conserved receptors (TAARs)
others seem destined to soon grasp the genes-to-behavior and back approach exemplified in the honeybee model organism
a model for adaptive evolution, for example, that is not nutrient chemical-dependent and pheromone-controlled?
1996 “It is now recognized that other genes on other chromosomes can induce sex reversal regardless of the individual’s SRY status.
2012 “…we now know that the SRY can begin directing sexual differentiation prior to onset of hormonal secretions
Social isolation disrupts myelin production.
the bottom-up epigenetic effects of nutrient chemicals on speciation that are concurrently controlled by the top-down epigenetic effects of pheromones on reproduction challenges those who might rather attempt to-explain away the conserved molecular biology of adaptive evolution via random mutations theory
