Lethal virus kills 5 billion people?

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (2)

Summary: Endogenous RNA interference is the energy-dependent epigenetic link from the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction to biophysically constrained viral latency. The stress-linked virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA has been linked to all pathology. Three Americans win Nobel medicine prize for body rhythm work [But they failed to link Americanism to Creationism] I predicted that Wen Zhou would win for linking the energy-dependent creation of G protein-coupled receptors to all biodiversity via olfaction and the space-time continuum in the context of…

New Testament Book Cover Refutes Theistic Evolution

Video of Biology of the Book Goats, bookworms, a monk’s kiss: Biologists reveal the hidden history of ancient gospels Collins already had developed a method to identify ancient species by differences in the amino acid sequences of collagen and other proteins preserved in fossils. See: Protein power by Robert F. Service …methods to sequence amino acids lag behind DNA sequencing. The report of 300 million year old proteins is based on ridiculous theories that failed to include what was known about…

Finding peace and π in the light of H bond energy

It might be amusing if the misrepresentations of links between energy and cell type differentiation by people like PZ Myers were not going to cause more suffering and death.  Instead, two years after his attack on me for my accurate representations of the link from nutrient energy-dependent chromosomal rearrangements to pheromone-controlled biodiversity in species from microbes to humans we see this: You’re trying to explain a random phenotype by looking for a randomization mechanism in the genome. No one will…

Cyclic cosmology and the stability of organized genomes

Current observations with a decaying cosmological constant allow for chaotic cyclic cosmology Abstract excerpt: ‘We present only a proof of principle, with no definite claim on the physical mechanism required for the present dark energy to decay.” My comment: Unlike nearly all theorists, they do not claim to be certain about any of the physical mechanisms that link atoms to ecosystems in the context of supercoiled DNA in the organized genomes of all living genera on this planet. For comparison,…

The pseudoscientific nonsense of behaviorists

Neural Representations of Unconditioned Stimuli in Basolateral Amygdala Mediate Innate and Learned Responses Excerpt from their summary: …we establish that the activation of US-responsive cells in the BLA is necessary for the expression of a conditioned response. Neural representations of conditioned and unconditioned stimuli therefore ultimately connect to US-responsive cells in the BLA to elicit both innate and learned responses. My comment: They link the innate ability to respond to epigenetic effects of odors to the learned ability to respond to…
