Do not refute cherished theories

Synopsis: All serious scientist know that pre-mRNAs (now known as microRNAs in more than 70,000 published works) do not create themselves. For comparison, Ricki Lewis fails to mention how fertility is biophysically constrained by by the creation of the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal energy, the creation of enzymes (e.g, ATP synthase), the creation of ATP, the creation of microRNAs, and the RNA-mediated creation of hormones and receptors that link achiral glycine in position 6 of the GnRH decapeptide to all experience-dependent…

Nothing evolved into all biodiversity on Earth

Ricki Lewis introduces more confusion into the question about “Wwhich came first, the chicken or the egg. She uses the evolved chicken to make chicken soup.” Did Christianity Speed Chicken Evolution? by Ricki Lewis. The selected genes encode the thyroid-stimulating hormone receptor (TSHR) and β-carotene dioxygenase 2 (BCDO2). Their DNA sequences echo positive selection: mutation changing an amino acid from the ancestral to the derived species. Ricki Lewis is a science writer with a PhD in genetics. She defined positive…

Variants near CHRNA3/5 and APOE have age- and sex-related effects on human lifespan Excerpt: The signal we observe is driven by rs429358, a non-synonymous Cys112Arg variant, which defines the ε4 allele and which has not previously been shown to be the causal variant influencing lifespan.

Excerpt: VARIANTS OF UNCERTAIN SIGNIFICANCE With phrases such as “settled science” and “scientific proof” part of the lexicon, it’s little wonder that health care consumers expect…

My comment: The amino acids are nutrient-dependent and linked to supercoiled DNA by energy-dependent changes in the innate immune system. The innate immune system links metabolic networks and genetic networks to supercoiled DNA. The fact that the amino acid substitutions link the innate immune system to all biodiversity in…

Reported here as: Ricki Lewis’ Time Machine Physics’s pangolin Trying to resolve the stubborn paradoxes of their field, physicists craft ever more mind-boggling visions of reality Excerpt 1) with my emphasis Physicists are deeply aware of the schizophrenic nature of their science and long to find a synthesis, or unification. Such is the goal of a so-called ‘theory of everything’. However, to non-physicists, these competing lines of thought, and…

Can a Quirky Chromosome Create a Second Human Species? Excerpt 1) The first departure from the common house mouse (Mus musculus) was the “tobacco mouse” (Mus poschiavinus), described in 1869 from specimens trapped in a tobacco factory in Valle di Poschiavo, Switzerland. They had big heads and small, dark bodies. Excerpt 2) I spoke to Bear back in 2004, again for The Scientist (a mechanism for the rapid extinction of a dedicated freelance writer is a change in editor-in-chief). Greg Bear is…
