Pheromones protect us from viruses (7)

It’s been more than one year since Guenther Witzany published What is Life? 3/18/20 “A new definition of life must integrate the current empirical knowledge about interactions between cells, viruses, and RNA networks to provide a better explanatory power than the twentieth century narrative.” The need for the new definition of life is consistent with my claims from “What is life when it is not protected from virus-driven entropy.” It’s been 5 years since this virtual conference presentation on 3/30/16. The…

God’s protection from SARS COV-2 and other viruses (3)

The coronavirus may sometimes slip its genetic material into human chromosomes—but what does that mean? 12/16/20 …the paper clearly states the integration the authors think happens could not lead to the production of infectious SARS-CoV-2. That claim suggests that science fiction author, Greg Bear correctly linked nutrient-dependent pheromone-regulated ecological adaptations across kingdoms to the integration of SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses in organized human genomes via chromosomal rearrangements and sympatric speciation. See: Genotype (2021) In 1910 Thomas Hunt Morgan discovered some…

Expert 13 (1)

12 Experts Questioning the Coronavirus Panic 3/19/20 President Donald J. Trump is expert 13 in the context of the fact that differential expression of cell types requires biophysically constrained viral latency. That fact became perfectly clear with the experimental evidence presented in  SARS-CoV-2 RNA reverse-transcribed and integrated into the human genome 12/13/20 The researchers: …investigated the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 RNAs can be reverse-transcribed and integrated into the human genome, and that transcription of the integrated sequences might account for PCR-positive…

microRNA-mediated quantum error correction (3)

See: microRNA-mediated quantum error correction (1) On 10/19/20, more than 250 additions to the indexed articles that mention the term ‘microRNA’ appeared after 5 days of what appeared to be a moratorium linked to publication of Thousands of Previously Unknown Phages Discovered in Whole-community Human Gut Metagenomes on 10/14/20. See also: Before Virus, After Virus: A Reckoning 10/15/20 The pandemic has energized us, yes, but it has also provided a necessary dose of humility. It has also been a call…

From optoribogenetics to HelioRiboGenetics (3)

See first: From optoribogenetics to HelioRiboGenetics (2) and From optoribogenetics to HelioRiboGenetics (1) “Opto” means light. “Helio” links God’s Creation of UV light to RNA-mediated protection from viruses across kingdoms via hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution. Circulating microRNAs associated with liver fibrosis in chronic hepatitis C patients Chronic hepatitis C (CHC) evolves in 20% of cases to liver cirrhosis after progressive stages of fibrosis (Center for Diseases Control and Prevention – CDC, 2019).

pH-dependent viral latency (3)

Most Memorial Day 2020 celebrations and services were cancelled due to the well-orchestrated coronavirus crisis, which led to restrictions on our Constitutional rights. During the past two years, I’ve linked the eternal significance of light-activated microRNA biogenesis to our Constitutional rights. See the 10-part series: The eternal significance of microRNAs (10) and the 10-part series: The microRNA-mediated future of humanity (10) See also: pH-dependent viral latency and pH-dependent viral latency (2) Ages 10-14+ can learn what is known about pH-dependent…

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (5)

Summary: If a player starts with evolution instead of the creation of energy that links ATP to the creation of RNA, the player is a loser. Nobody wants to belong to the party of losers. One of the best strategies in such a case is evidently an interpretation of the change as a gradual accumulation of knowledge while their work has always been at the cutting edge. — Kalevi Kull Secular: Ancient Viruses Are Buried in Your DNA (2017) by…

Robert Sapolsky’s legacy of atheistic pseudoscientific nonsense

Summary: Not only does everything known to serious scientists about energy link RNA synthesis to life, everything McEwen and others have published links nutrient stress and/or social stress to the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA and all pathology. As moderator of the International Society for Human Ethology (ISHE), a not-for-profit scientific organization that consistently touts pseudoscientific nonsense in the context of neo-Darwinian evolution, Jay R. Feierman’s attacks on the works of serous scientists are increasing in frequency and in magnitude.…

Epigenetics and autophagy vs mutations and evolution (4)

“Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) is a positive-sense single stranded RNA virus that infects a wide range of plants, especially tobacco and other members of the family Solanaceae. The infection causes characteristic patterns, such as “mosaic”-like mottling and discoloration on the leaves (hence the name). TMV was the first virus ever to be discovered. Although it was known from the late 19th century that an infectious disease was damaging tobacco crops, it was not until 1930 that the infectious agent was…
