An evolutionary theory killer

Polymaths and paradigm shifts: from Asimov to Bear (1)

Summary: In the context of what is known about how top-down causation must be linked to all biodiversity on Earth, the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight links differences in the energy of two photons from the proton motive force to the creation of microRNAs. The link from the proton motive force to the creation of microRNAs is endogenous RNA interference (RNAi). Endogenous RNAi is manifested as energy-dependent differences in biophysically constrained viral latency. Biophysically constrained viral latency has been linked…

The tipping point (revisited): 70,000 publications

Excerpt: This new empirically based perspective on the evolution of genetic novelty will have more explanatory power in the future than the „error-replication“ narrative of the last century. Simply put, all serious scientists have always known that the “error-replication” narrative of the 20th century was a ridiculous misrepresentation of what Darwin placed into the context of his “conditions of life.” The tipping point?: 50,000publications (May 16, 2016) See also: The tipping point (revisited): 69,000 publications (January 20, 2018) Nearly 1000…

Diet-driven RNA interference and mental health (4)

See: Diet-driven RNA interference and mental health (3) Social transmission and buffering of synaptic changes after stress Transmission from the stressed subject to the naive partner required the activation of PVN CRH neurons in both subject and partner to drive and detect the release of a putative alarm pheromone from the stressed mouse. Reported as: Researchers discover brain cells change following close contact with a stressed individual “There has been other literature that shows stress can be transferred — and…

Anti-entropic sunlight: Schrödinger’s Creationist Secret? (4)

Summary: Antagonists such as John Hewitt have exhausted my patience. Now see this: The authors invented the term “phosphate steering”  in an attempt to obfuscate what has been known to all serious scientists about oxidative phosphorylation for more than 50 years. See: “oxidative phosphorylation” microRNA  (105 entries); “oxidative phosphorylation” (21955 entries) and “phosphate steering” (1 entry) Compare the nonsense about phosphae steering to facts in the context of Modern diversification of the amino acid repertoire driven by oxygen (2017) published…

The MicroRNAome Strikes Back: A Sokalian hoax (9)

Summary: Darwin’s “conditions of life” link the creation of sunlight from the creation of ATP to the creation of microRNAs and RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in the context of biophysically constrained viral latency. There is no magical creation of an RNA force field or protein force field that could be used to link the magic of evolution to biologically-based diversity in species from microbes to humans. RNA force field with accuracy comparable to state-of-the-art protein force fields The complex and…

The MicroRNAome Strikes Back: A Sokalian hoax (4)

In this Sokalian hoax series, all food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled biodiversity has clearly been linked from the speed of light on contact with water to biophysically constrained viral latency in all genera via the physiology of reproduction and autophagy, the innate phage defense mechanism. Will water link RNA modifications to stem cell self-renewal, or will light-activated endogenous substrates and biophysically constrained RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions be tossed into the brickyard for the win? I reiterate the most obvious facts by mentioning…

Interethnic genetic similarities and differences (2)

From base editing to RNA editing (7)

Group Description Human ethology is the study of the biology of human behavior, including the behavior’s phylogeny (evolutionary history), ontogeny (development), proximate causes, and adaptiveness (survival value). Jay R. Feierman wrote: This has nothing to do with human ethology. So, I can’t publish it to the group. This is what he refused to publish to the group: ———— Two generations of serious scientists have already been taught to make claims like this (although some must be forced to do it):…

Losers: rediscovering an epigenetic key

Epigenetic mechanisms modulate differences in Drosophila foraging behavior Little is known about how genetic variation and epigenetic marks interact to shape differences in behavior. Reported as: An epigenetic key to unlock behavior change October 16, 2017 “One of the big questions in the Child & Brain Development program over the years has been how experience gets embedded in our biology and the mechanisms for that,” says Sokolowski. See for comparison: See Brain on stress: How the social environment gets under…

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (3)

Energy-dependent structure and function: Until death (2) The COMT Val158Met polymorphism supposedly is not found in species other than humans See: Global variation in the frequencies of functionally different catechol-O-methyltransferase alleles This is also the first study establishing the COMT*L allele as the derived allele unique to humans. Other organisms do not commit suicide. That suggests the human specific COMT Val158Met substitution may be important to those who know very little about suicide prevention. For instance, see: The catechol-o-methyltransferase Val158Met polymorphism…
