Virulence and your UTI

Nobody wants to belong to the party of losers. One of the best strategies in such a case is evidently an interpretation of the change as a gradual accumulation of knowledge while their work has always been at the cutting edge. — Kalevi Kull Virulence: Take on the role of a virus competing to infect a host cell and replicate your viral components! If you have played this game, you probably know more about virulence than the researchers and journalists…

Food for thought: Penrose v Ellis (1)

Food for thought.   The most popular ideas of atheists may still include hypothetical biogenic features that arrived from outer space. That’s how pseudoscientific nonsense appears to become a fact of life on Earth.   All experimental evidence of energy-dependent biologically-based cause and effect must be suppressed or ignored, and that’s what atheists prefer to do. See for instance: Hypothetical biogenic features in the context of the Alan Hills fossil. (Thanks to John Hewitt for reminding me of this.) On…

George Church refutes theistic evolution (2)

See: George Church refutes theistic evolution George Church may not know that he refuted every aspect of theistic evolution in his presentation on February 8, 2017. Hopefully, someone will tell him how he linked quantum physics from chemistry to biophysically constrained protein folding and all biodiversity, or explain to others how he did that. Here is my explanation of his admissions. I placed the explanation into the context of this poster session submission. Title: Energy as information and constrained endogenous…

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…

Autophagy is the antiphage defense strategy

The “Antiphage Defense Strategy” in Vibrio anguillarum is called autophagy by many serious scientists. It links nutrient energy-dependent pheromone-controlled quorum sensing to viral latency, healthy longevity, symbiosis, reproduction, and biodiversity from microbial species to humans. For an evolutionary approach to energy-dependent autophagy that fails to address any aspect of how virus-driven energy theft causes all pathology see: (12/7/16) Part I: Living together: The symbiosis of host-microbial interactions (12/7/16) See also: 12/7/16 ….McFall-Ngai tells the story of a symbiosis between the…

Survivors of RNA-mediated terrorism

In Darwin’s Radio and Darwin’s Children, Greg Bear predicted there would be ecologically adapted survivors of the forthcoming viral apocalypse.  Could his “raw insight” help to save you, or help to save any of your loved ones who are not already dead? Or, is it too late for us all? See: “The Darwin Code: Intelligent Design without God” Excerpt:  Once again, evolution is a fresh territory, much larger than anyone thought. The Darwin code–the key to all of our new…

Light ‘drives’ adaptation; nothing ‘drives’ evolution (3)

See also Light ‘drives’ adaptation; nothing ‘drives’ evolution (2) 100 feet below the surface bioluminescent organisms are the dominant light source, study shows Excerpt: “Luminescent marine organisms each have a unique light signature. By looking at the time series light generated by a flash within the instrument, we were able to determine who was there making the flash,” Cohen explained. “It’s a useful tool, particularly at this time of year when relatively few species are present.” Bioluminescence is known to…

Polycombic ecological adaptation as a science, not a theory (2)

Evolutionary Constraints in the β-Globin Cluster: The Signature of Purifying Selection at the δ-Globin (HBD) Locus and Its Role in Developmental Gene Regulation Conclusion: … the results here presented indicate that purifying selection is driving not only HBD evolution but also its neighbor pseudogene, HBBP1. In the light of recent advances in the characterization of the β-globin cluster, we propose that the complex patterns of diversity observed in this genomic region arose from distinct functional constraints related with the intricate…

Hypothesis free pseudoscience vs facts (1)

Old Earth Creationist (OEC) Peter Berean, thinks I should change the claims in my model of energy-dependent biophysically constrained RNA-mediate protein folding chemistry. He does not like the fact that my model explains all pathology in the context of virus-driven energy theft. If viral latency is not nutrient energy-dependent and controlled by the physiology of reproduction in species from bacteria to humans, I will change my claims. If someone explains what is wrong with my model, I will try to…
