Abiogenesis vs microRNA biogenesis (2)

All serious scientists learned about Schrödinger’s claims in “What is Life?” (1944).  All serious scientists have since linked the creation of the sun’s anti-entropic virucidal energy to “negentropy” and healthy longevity. See also: Reappraising the human mitochondrial DNA recombination dogma …paving the way for the definitive rejection of the non-recombination dogma for human mtDNA.   Recombination is quantized energy-dependent and biophysically constrained by the physiology of reproduction. See the works of those who are scheduled to present during Schrödinger at…

Science vs Secularism: Molecular Mechanisms or Math?

Summary: An example from ancient knowledge of trigonometry links pattern recognition as the basis for the science of creationism, and pattern recognition also is the basis for molecular biology. What form of virus-driven pathology would you most like to see eliminated from future consideration by serious scientists who know how energy-dependent RNA-mediated cell type differentiation occurs? In any case, a PubMed search for microRNA and your disease of choice will be enlightening. See for example: microRNA + Alzheimer’s or microRNA…

The toxic river of neo-Darwinian pseudoscience

Mechanistic Basis of Resistance to PCBs in Atlantic Tomcod from the Hudson River Excerpt: Our results indicate that resistance can be due to one structural change in the coding region of a single gene and that evolutionary change in anthropogenically challenged natural populations can be rapid. My comment: Structural changes to the coding region of all genes are nutrient-dependent. This article was published in 2011 and it ignored everything known to serious scientists about the obvious links from non-coding RNAs…

Metaphysical science vs theory

I’ve wasted too much time attempting to explain biologically-based facts to the biologically uninformed discussants on Science X network. This is an attempt to salvage some of the time and to move forward.  See: New comments posted on Science X network: – A natural history of neurons: Diverse mutations reveal lineage of brain cells : 1 new comment – Study sheds light on powerful process that turns food into energy : 1 new comment – Study adds to evidence that…

MicroRNA controlled growth and brain development

Navigable networks as Nash equilibria of navigation games Nature Communications | Article  Open Excerpt: Here we show that the ideal maximally navigable networks do share some basic structural properties with the Internet, E.coli metabolic network, English word network, US airport network, the Hungarian road network and a structural network of the human brain. Reported as: Researchers find the organization of the human brain to be nearly ideal Excerpt: “An optimal network in the brain would have the smallest number of…

How much good can be attributed to social science theories?

Battle between NSF and House science committee escalates: How did it get this bad? Excerpt: “The public deserves an explanation for why the NSF has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on musicals about climate change, bicycle designs, and a video game that allows users to relive prom night.” My comment: The only explanation for how things got this bad is the acceptance of evolutionary theory. Funds spent on research to determine how we evolved into creatures that can ride…

“Kardashians” in science

On “Kardashians” in science and the general relationship between achievement and fame Posted on September 19, 2014 by Lascap Excerpt Ultimately, it is all about the relevance of one’s contribution. But trying to discredit an increasingly important form of academic activity (outreach), by shaming those engaged in it, is probably uncalled for. My comment: The relevance of our 1996 Hormones and Behavior review was the details on RNA-mediated cell type differentiation.  From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior Although it was…
