Two retractions of human idiocy

Excerpt: …she was interested in the PNAS research because it identified a potential inhibitor of the hepatitis C virus… ”Definitely embarrassing:” Nobel Laureate retracts non-reproducible paper in Nature journal 1) This retraction marks the second in six months for Nature Chemistry after having none for eight years. 2) In 2009, Szostak also retracted a 2008 paper in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences after an outside researcher could not replicate the results. The retraction notice credited Katherine Berry, then…

Light activated error-free DNA repair (3)

The vibrational theory of olfaction for the win …he and his co-authors delve into more of the specifics of olfactory receptors, including particular amino acid motifs, metal binding capacities, and disulphide bridge redox status. It turns out that amino acid side chains alone frequently pull off some rather interesting electron transfer effects without the need for fancy co-enzymes or prosthetic groups. See for an example of what one enzyme can do: See also this example of how the energy-dependent creation…

Schrodinger’s answer to Schrodinger’s question

There is no such thing as de novo control of electrons or self-assembly. Answering Schrödinger’s question: A free-energy formulation The free-energy principle (FEP) is a formal model of neuronal processes that is widely recognised in neuroscience as a unifying theory of the brain and biobehaviour. More recently, however, it has been extended beyond the brain to explain the dynamics of living systems, and their unique capacity to avoid decay. They don’t understand the question that Schrodinger answered. He linked the…

A null mutation and healthy longevity?

Summary: Food odors and pheromones biophysically constrain all pathology in species from microbes to humans. What kind of biologically uninformed science idiot leaves out everything known to serious scientists about the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA and tells others they must falsify the neutral null theory that led to claims about a biophysically constrained beneficial “null mutation” in the Amish population of Berne, Indiana? Glutamylation Regulates Transport, Specializes Function, and Sculpts the Structure of Cilia Reported as: How to Control…

A mental health problem at the highest level

Investigators look for clues in deadly church shooting – news – att.net Investigators look for clues in deadly church shooting – news – att.net Todd Piro reports from Sutherland Springs, Texas. …the result of a “mental health problem at the highest level.” The mental health problem is caused by the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA, and by the ignorance of theorists who claim that mutations cause evolution. The theorists may not be intelligent enough to play the cell biology game…

Loss of energy as information (1)

Summary: Koonin claims that the theories of population geneticists have replaced what he calls the just-so stories of adaptationists with testable predictions. He claims that serious scientists should attempt to falsify the ridiculous theories touted by people like him, so that the ongoing use of ridiculous mathematical models can improve our understanding of evolution. I think Koonin may be attempting to address the concerns brought forward after another biologically uninformed science idiot claimed that my refutation of neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (7)

Conclusion: The biggest threat to humanity is not the “Big Bang” theory of creation or the “Big Bang” theory of how life on Earth might end after an explosion of cosmic proportions. The biggest threat has always been “human idiocy.” 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Awarded to International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons “for its work to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of…

Until death: Virus-driven failure of multisensory integration (1)

Martha McClintock‘s works inspired my works. Publication of “The Scent of Eros: Mysteries of Odor Human Sexualty” (1995) led Denise Chen to study olfaction and pheromones. See for example: Encoding human sexual chemosensory cues in the orbitofrontal and fusiform cortices. Her student, Wen Zhou, returned to China and she is the senior author of Olfaction Warps Visual Time Perception. Since 1995, all accurate representations of how foraging behavior links food odors and pheromones from feedback loops to sexual reproduction and…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (5)

Summary: If he was not still dead, the 1965 Nobel Laureate, Richard P. Feynman might claim that this year’s Physics Prize was awarded for “human idiocy.” Nobel Prize in Physics Awarded to LIGO Black Hole Researchers Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, pronounced in 1916, suggested that matter and energy would warp the geometry of space-time the way a heavy sleeper sags a mattress, producing the effect we call gravity. His equations described a universe in which space and time were…

Caught in an epigenetic trap: flag waving consequences

Egypt concert-goers arrested for raising rainbow flag This is an example of “flag waving” consequences from another part of the world. They are accused of “public indecency” and “inciting immorality among young people”, the sources said following Monday’s arrests. Why? These protesters were probably caught in an epigenetic trap. See: Search Results for “epigenetic trap” The colors of the rainbow link the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight to epigenetically trapped water in supercoiled DNA and all biophysically constrained biodiversity via…
