RNA-mediated epigenetic regulation of gene expression

Evolution outside the context of “the light of evolution” (2)

See first: Evolution outside the context of “the light of evolution” How many proponents of Intelligent Design never learned that Darwinian evolution was based on his “conditions of life?” ch 4 IV. Natural Selection; or the Survival of the Fittest  “IF under changing conditions of life…” ch 5 http://www.bartleby.com/11/5002.html “…the greater variability of species having wider ranges than of those with restricted ranges, lead to the conclusion that variability is generally related to the conditions of life…” “…we cannot tell…

The Origin of Information (3)

Summary: I presented two poster sessions during the Labroots virtual conference “Neuroscience,” March 16-17, 2016 One linked sunlight to energy as the origin of information. The other linked energy as information to biophysically constrained viral latency via the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction in all living genera. Additional experimental evidence of top-down causation has since confirmed that the creation of sunlight can be linked from energy as information to all biodiversity via its anti-entropic virucidal effects. The direct quantitative measurement of…

Wasted Templeton Funding (3)

See also: Wasted Templeton Funding (2) Templeton grant funds evolution rethink Excerpt: …parents can influence offspring not just through their DNA but by passing on the microorganisms they host or by transmitting epigenetic marks to subsequent generations. “Innovation may be a developmental response that becomes stabilized through genetic changes,” explains Armin Moczek, an evolutionary developmental biologist at Indiana University, Bloomington. My comment: He has not explained how nutrient energy-dependent changes in base pairs link hydrogen-atom transfer in solutions from microRNA…

Neo-Darwinian logic is nonsense

Let’s discover how we humans created the concept of God for our own survival throughout evolution Months of irrelevant banter with no intelligent response to details that I provided with links to what is currently known about biophysically constrained protein folding led to this exchange: WEENY: “…all changes to gene sequences are currently called mutations.” JVK: What need is there for anyone to call them “mutations” except when linking them from virus-driven genomic entropy to pathology? Why not simply tell…

Mutated mitochondrial genes vs Supercoiled DNA

Genetics probe identifies new Galapagos tortoise species Excerpt 1) Their paper1, published in PLoS ONE on 21 October, is the culmination of a decade of work. It presents 25 mitochondrial DNA mutations that reliably separate the two groups. Excerpt 2) “The species concept is a fuzzy one,” he says. “Call them whatever you want, I don’t care. What is important is that people realize there is hidden diversity.” My comment: The editors at “Nature” seem to typically support the misrepresentations…

Supercoiled DNA constrains virus-driven genomic entropy

1) Genes linked with malaria’s virulence shared by apes, humans and 2) Supercoiled DNA is far more dynamic than the ‘Watson-Crick’ double helix were reported today. One report (1) links viruses to the evolution of biodiversity in chimpanzees and humans compared to gorillas. The other report (2) links nutrient energy-dependent base pair changes to RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions and DNA repair. Both reports are linked to open access publications: See 1)  Ape parasite origins of human malaria virulence genes Excerpt:…

Foundamentals of theory

There are foundations of epigenetics and fundamentals of molecular mechanisms. They have been detailed in this atoms to ecosystems model of RNA-mediated cell type differentiation. Nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations: from atoms to ecosystems. I have never seen anyone mention the “foundamentals” of epigenetics. It appears the word has been invented. Similarly, the word “mutation” was invented in 1904 by de Vries. Inventing words and defining them to fit ridiculous theories about neo-Darwinian evolution is required to continue convincing theorists that…

The bug in the “holy grail” of evolution

Evolution Bug by Richard William Nelson, October 1, 2015 Excerpt: In one of the largest invertebrate amino acid sequences studies to date, Young and Hebert, found highly variable patterns of amino acid sequences in the enzyme known as cytochrome C between species. None of Charles Darwin’s continuous “successive, slight” evolutionary changes in more than 4,000 species of arachnids studied were found. The paper, published in the highly respected journal PLoS ONE, August, 2015, demonstrates the persistent bug in the theory…
