A single base change refutes theistic evolution

Everyone who failed to learn how light-activated endogenous substrates biophysically constrain viral latency is playing “catch up” to serious scientists. The serious scientists know how quantized energy-dependent RNA-mediated cell type differentiation occurs in the context of the physiology of reproduction in all living genera. Rather than accept the fact that the innate immune system of bacteria (CRISPR) linked the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction from autophagy to biophysically constrained viral latency, theorists decided to waste money on virus-assisted gene-editing attempts to…

EDAR V370A and sympatric speciation

Nick Lane and others like him refuse to reappraise their human mitochondrial DNA recombination dogma. All serious scientists know where the energy for recombination comes from. But, in his latest video clip, he touts the same unsubstantiated theoretical pseudoscientific nonsense. See the: Aeon Video: Life on earth – from mushrooms to humans and everything in between – seems enormously diverse. At the cellular level, however, almost all complex lifeforms are surprisingly similar. Why life is this way, though, remains mysterious.…

Polymaths and paradigm shifts: from Asimov to Bear (2)

Polymaths and paradigm shifts: from Asimov to Bear (1) See also: Search results for virus-driven energy theft Summary: The creation of enzymes, such as ATP synthase is energy-dependent. The energy biophysically constrains viral latency via the creation of microRNAs and RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions that differentiate the cell types of all living genera. Modifying Other’s Originality without Quote is an Act of Piracy A writer who does not cite the sources in h/h feature article is committing piracy. Piracy is…

How to create biologically uninformed theorists

Summary: On March 2, 2018, Philip C. Ball and Nick Lane started making claims about proton gradients. Their claims are based on my model of quantized energy as information. This post includes added support for what is known to all serious scientists about the light-activated endogenous substrates that link molecular epigenetics to RNA-mediated autophagy. See first: Energy as information and constrained endogenous RNA interference (audio/visual aid 2017) Feedback loops link quantized energy as information to biophysically constrained RNA-mediated protein folding…

The MicroRNAome Strikes Back: A Sokalian hoax (10)

Linda Buck, Ben Feringa, Michael Gazzaniga, Christof Koch, Nick Lane and Svante Paabo are among the presenters who will almost undoubtedly discuss some or all of my claims. Prepare to ask questions or intelligently discuss accurate representations of top-down causation by watching this: The energy-dependent creation of the microRNAome protects the organized genomes of all living genera from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA that links mutations to all pathology. See: The Bull Sperm MicroRNAome and the Effect of Fescue…

The “great filter” is an epigenetic trap

The great filter The silence of universe seems ominous. Was Earth lucky? Thanks to George Ellis​ for alerting others to this. Excerpt: Nick Lane in his magnificent new book The Vital Question thinks that a peculiar feature of all earthly life — that it traps energy in the form of protons pumped across membranes… Excerpt 2) Next, after a couple of billion years, creatures bigger than microbes emerged, once (Nick Lane argues) an energy-per-gene limit was breached by the invention…
