Laws of biology vs no laws of physics

There Are No Laws of Physics. There’s Only the Landscape In Einstein’s view, if we probed the essence of physics deeply enough, there would be one and only one way in which all the components — matter, radiation, forces, space and time — would fit together to make reality work, just as the gears, springs, dials and wheels of a mechanical clock uniquely combine to keep time. Reported as:  Physicist concludes there are no laws of physics It was June…

Hard Science vs the neo-Darwinian “magic box”

Summary: Identical nucleotide sequences link energy-dependent changes in binding sites to different amino acids in different proteins. The binding sites are conserved in the orthologous mammalian genes. The in vivo structure of biological membranes and evidence for lipid domains Scientists investigate how the sense of smell works in bacteria Biogenic non-crystalline U(IV) revealed as major component in uranium ore deposits As presciently predicted in the works of Richard Feynman and Bruce McEwen, bacteria feed on something that allows them to…

Lawless evolution: No physics

New leader of NIH’s research watchdog faces staff revolt Partin may be looking to NSF for ideas about how to handle charges of plagiarism. Although 81% of NSF’s research misconduct findings involve plagiarism, ORI has left most plagiarism allegations to institutions to handle. Plagiarism was so widespread more than 20 years ago that the co-author of my book said to ignore it. The continuation of the problem for two decades has left pseudoscientists in charge and put the claims serious…

Antithetical conclusions (6)

Biochemical and Structural Insights into Doublecortin-like Kinase Domain 1 (Subscription required) Abstract excerpt: This structure also allowed for the mapping of cancer-causing mutations within the kinase domain, suggesting that a loss of kinase function may contribute to tumorigenesis. Continued See: Antithetical conclusions (5, 4, 3, 2) In the same issue of this journal, see: A Second RNA-Binding Site in the NS1 Protein of Influenza B Virus (Subscription required) Abstract excerpt: We demonstrate that single-site alanine replacements of basic residues in…
