Defeating disease and Communism (4)

On 3/16/21, Timothy Normand Miller, in his role as the stupid atheist, @theosib2 wrote: If there were any of the typical indications of a designer in DNA, then I would consider that there must have been a designer. However, none of those can be found. Peptide synthesis at the origin of life 11/13/20 and The Amino Acid Composition of Quadruplex Binding Proteins Reveals a Shared Motif and Predicts New Potential Quadruplex Interactors 9/13/18 were linked to Properties and biological impact…

Defeating Disease and Communism (2)

On 4/23/20 former President Donald J. Trump reportedly linked God’s Creation of sunlight and humidity to the energy-dependent weakening of coronaviruses via RNA–RNA interaction between host and virus, but see Experts say there’s no medical basis for Trump’s suggestion that sunlight, disinfectants may treat coronavirus 4/24/20 Jonathan Reiner, professor of medicine at The George Washington University Hospital, said there’s no medical basis for Trump’s statements about sunlight. Reiner’s stupid claim can be placed into the context of “…a computational model…

The overwhelming ignorance of sex researchers

Summary: J. Michael Bailey, and others like him, pretend to not know how non-coding variants are epigenetically linked from differences in hydrogen bonds to all energy-dependent biophysically constrained morphological and behavioral phenotypes. Genome-Wide Association Study of Male Sexual Orientation [Energy-dependent changes in biophysically constrained viral latency] We identified several [energy-dependent changes in] SNPs with p < 10−5, including regions of multiple supporting SNPs on chromosomes 13 (minimum p = 7.5 × 10−7) and 14 (p = 4.7 × 10−7). The genes nearest to these peaks have functions plausibly relevant to…

Energy-dependent pheromone-controlled entropy (4)

Solar-driven reforming of lignocellulose to H2 with a CdS/CdOx photocatalyst Reported as: Scientists harness solar power to produce clean hydrogen from biomass They claim that the rigid structure of nature’s equivalent to armored concrete evolved to protect plants and trees from degradation. They don’t make claims about what might cause the degradation. They start with the likelihood that degradation automagically occurs. That led them to design a combination of catalyst and solution that mimics how the anti-entropic energy of sunlight…

Hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs (5)

Can Anybody Actually Win The Evolution 2.0 Prize? January 18, 2016 at 9:44 pm In an invited review of nutritional epigenetics, I linked atoms to ecosystems without the pseudoscientific nonsense touted by neo-Darwinists. Kohl, James V. (2014): Nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations: from atoms to ecosystems. The invited submission was returned without review. When I provide all the details for the origin of the DNA code, what prevents the submission from being rejected without comment? January 18, 2016 at 11:13 pm …

Teleophobes vs teleophiles: a recent history

  Teleology is a reason or explanation for something in function of its end, purpose, or goal. The teleological or physico-theological argument, also known as the argument from design, or intelligent design argument is an argument for the existence of God or, more generally, for an intelligent creator “based on perceived evidence of deliberate design in the natural or physical world” My comment: Teleophobes make weak arguments peppered with logical fallacies.  They do not make physico-theological arguments, which can be supported…

Mutisensory integration: watching the paradigm shift

Multisensory integration and causal inference in the brain Excerpt (with my emphasis):  It is largely unknown how the brain implements prior knowledge and expectations. Various mechanisms have been proposed such as spontaneous activity (Berkes et al., 2011), the fraction of neurons encoding a particular feature (Girshick et al., 2011), their response gain and tuning curves or connectivity and top-down projections from higher order areas (Rao and Ballard, 1999).” My comment: The brain implements prior knowledge and expectations through nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled…

Quantum entanglement, mass, and biomass

Joseph Kover seems closer than most other physicists to linking light-induced amino acid substitutions to cell type differentiation and biomass via the biophysically constrained chemistry of protein folding.  Today he posted notice of the following publication with the comment: “… just what I was waiting for…” Entanglement Makes Quantum Particles Measurably Heavier, Says Quantum Theorist Excerpt: The discovery is a long sought-after link between the theories of quantum mechanics and general relativity See also this model by Joseph Kover: I’m…
