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 (1)

Excerpt: ” …long-standing presumptions led to the claims made by biologically uninformed theorists who failed to link biophysically constrained viral latency to the recent origin of most protein-coding variants via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in species from microbes to humans…” She Has Her Mother’s Laugh: The Powers, Perversions, and Potential of Heredity May 29, 2018 | 672 Pages From the description of the book: 1) We need a new definition of what heredity is… 2) …Zimmer ultimately unpacks urgent…

Enzyme-constrained interethnic biodiversity (4)

No, they don’t. See: Why Is This Bacterium Hiding in Human Tumors? Whether Fusobacterium nucleatum causes colon tumors is unknown. But a new study hints that it may be “an integral part of the cancer.” Serious scientists have linked bacteriophages to all virus-driven pathology. Cancer is a virus-driven pathology. That’s the truth! In  the New York Times article by Gina Kolata she wrote: “The whole idea of bacteria in tumors is fascinating and unexpected,” said Dr. Bert Vogelstein, a colon…

Constrained evolution is ecological adaptation

See also: Unconstrained evolutionary innovability Ideas that evolution is not constrained can be compared to experimental evidence of biophysically constrained ecological adaptations. The most recent relevant open access published work from the Jakobsson lab is: TRIM28 Represses Transcription of Endogenous Retroviruses in Neural Progenitor Cells. This is a link to a prior publication (also open access): microRNA-125 distinguishes developmentally generated and adult-born olfactory bulb interneurons Taken together these two published works extend our 1996 model of RNA-mediated cell type differentiation…
