Pheromones protect us from viruses (9)

It may be a form of insanity that prevents theorists, atheists, and Communists from addressing the facts that have been detailed in the context of: Direct Observation of Protonation State Modulation in SARS-CoV-2 Main Protease upon Inhibitor Binding with Neutron Crystallography 3/23/21 …a class of agents called covalent peptidomimetic inhibitors that work by using strings of unnatural amino acids to bind to specific target proteins. See for instance:  A two-amino acid change in the hemagglutinin of the 1918 influenza virus…

Reporting new scientific truths is not allowed in the USA

Summary: If we keep training serious scientists in the United States but force them to return to their homeland to report new scientific truths, our Homeland Security will suffer from the ignorance of pseudoscientists who are still touting ridiculous claims about mutations and evolution. A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. Every…

MicroRNAs GnRH and the failure of sex research

Summary: “The Bull Sperm MicroRNAome and the Effect of Fescue Toxicosis on Sperm MicroRNA Expression” accurately represents what is known about food energy-dependent RNA-mediated cell type differentiation in species from soil microbes to humans. MicroRNAs are not new players in the hypothalamic control of fertility and the effects of food odors and pheromones on microRNAs link energy-dependent changes in hormones to behavior. That fact was detailed two decades ago in our Hormones and Behavior review. Now see: [MicroRNAs: new players…

God’s shrinking role in salvation (2)

Conclusion: There is no such thing as a blind dance of atoms. Quantized energy-dependent changes link angstroms to ecosystems in all living genera via the physiology of reproduction. Serious scientists do not link “high-level cause and purposes” to anything that does not link what organisms eat from food energy to the physiology of reproduction. Only pseudoscientists claim that ideas about “emergence” are “…a remarkable synthesis across fields and levels.” See: God’s shrinking role in salvation These 6 Common Vegetables Are…

From E. coli to monkeys and mankind: Theories vs models (5)

From E. coli to monkeys and mankind: Theories vs models (4) CRISPR Is Taking Over Science, Breaks Out Of Labs And Invades Schools (5/29/17) …used mathematical models to reveal that even in a uniform environment, metabolic competition generally leads to the steady coexistence of distinct microbes, collectively called a “consortium”. In a consortium, distinct microbes organize themselves to create a community-level metabolism that best exploits the nutrients present. The models showed that while growing, a consortium depletes the available pool…

The death of CRISPR; long live endogenous RNAi

The future of human genome editing Published online 26 April 2017 …there are currently few genetic arguments for the necessity of correcting the genetic material of future generations given preimplantation diagnosis of monogenic conditions. The death of the CRISPR Cas9 may seem to have come quickly, but see also: Kalevi Kull: Censorship & Royal Society Evo Event Nobody wants to belong to the party of losers. One of the best strategies in such a case is evidently an interpretation of…

Cytosis: Biology Content

  Help Me Write Some Biology Content Project Update #5: Cytosis: A Cell Biology Board Game by John Coveyou (Genius Games) Many of you have mentioned that you’d like to have an explanation of the biology behind Cytosis available… and I think that is an AWESOME plan. Every time I’ve taught the game to non-science players in the past, they say gameplay made even more sense (and was so much more enjoyable) when I explained the science as well. This…

Stuart Kauffman refutes theistic evolution

See also: Virus-driven energy theft and premature death Biodiversity is autocatalytic (Senior author Stuart Kauffman) …it was recently shown using the RAF algorithm that the metabolic network of Escherichia coli forms a large autocatalytic set of close to 1800 reactions (Sousa et al., 2015). As far as we know, this is the first formal proof that living organisms (or at least essential parts thereof) are indeed autocatalytic sets. Reported as: “Autocatalytic biodiversity hypothesis aims to supplant Darwin’s ‘war of the…

Dobzhansky 1973 and precision medicine (3)

Dobzhansky 1973 and precision medicine Dobzhansky 1973 and Precision Medicine (2) How Do Bacteria Help Cancer Studying bacterial effects on cancer are very complex, because there is no one clear mechanism Jon LIeff has again obfuscated the clarity of facts about energy-dependent conserved molecular mechanisms. These are the facts: 1) Closed feedback loops link nutrient energy-dependent pheromone-controlled quorum sensing in bacteria to supercoiled DNA in all living genera. 2) Virus-driven energy theft causes the degradation of messenger RNA in bacteria…

Epigenetics and autophagy vs mutations and evolution (6)

Bird embryos uncover homology and evolution of the dinosaur ankle Conclusion: The early formation of the limb skeleton is often assumed to be well known from ‘classic’ published lines of work using traditional techniques and model species. However, it is worth revising this basic information. New methods and better taxon sampling can provide increased detail and substantial revision, with important evolutionary implications. In addition to the fossil record, reliable embryological data from birds are important to understand their evolution from…
