An evolutionary theory killer

Epigenetic inheritance of spatiotemporal regulation (5)

Thanks for the Stress, Dad As embryos, the researchers found that the mouse offspring, which exhibited more anxious behavior than usual, also had lower miRNA levels, as did the sperm of the male offspring upon maturity. The stress-linked degradation of messenger RNA is caused by virus-driven energy theft, which has been linked to all pathology in species from bacteria to humans.  For example: Neutrons identify critical details in bacterial enzyme implicated in gastric cancer Ronning’s team focused on H. pylori’s…

Part 2: Light-controlled cell biology (revisited)

Greg Bear took the lead with this approach in his novel Quantico (2006). A genetically engineered virus was used to erase the memory of a specifically targeted human population to reduce inter-ethnic conflict. [Greg Bear] …served as a consultant for NASA, the U.S. Army, the State Department, the International Food Protection Association, and Homeland Security on matters ranging from privatizing space to food safety, the frontiers of microbiology and genetics, and biological security. Greg Bear is a likely candidate for…

Energy-dependent chirality (2)

See Energy-dependent chirality 2013 MicroRNA-based regulation of epithelial–hybrid–mesenchymal fate determination See also E. Ben-Jacob Ben-Jacob et al., have linked everything currently known about natural information processing from natural selection for energy-dependent codon optimality to healthy longevity and from virus-driven energy theft to mutations that cause cancer. See for comparison: LH Tsai Tsai laboratory Our primary goal is to elucidate the mechanisms underlying neurological disorders affecting learning & memory. The major research areas include age disorders, autism, and Alzheimer’s disease. 2012…

From Precis to Proof in 6000 years (2)

See: From Precis to Proof in 6000 years Why now? See from 2014 Israeli Middle Schools School to Include Theory of Evolution‘ Excerpt: “…learning about evolution is not the primary function of the decision, but rather to use it as a building block for students to learn more about their ecology.” See also: President Obama on Atheism We have since seen the rise of claims about natural information processing link energy-dependent changes to healthy longevity in species from microbes to…

Molecular Diagnostics: What is unprotected life?

Facile Recoding of Selenocysteine in Nature Abstract excerpt: This illustrates the ease by which the genetic code may evolve new coding schemes, possibly aiding organisms to adapt to changing environments, and show the genetic code is much more flexible than previously thought. My comment: It also refutes the ridiculous theories of neo-Darwinists, by placing ecological variation and ecological adaptation into the context of how nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated events are linked from the innate immune system to the physiology of reproduction and…

Half truths support theories without facts

How to lie by telling the truth Excerpt: People… trot out half-truths, in full expectation and knowledge that they will create a false impression. And then, when others act on the false impression, the “truth-telling liars” can sit back and pretend that they aren’t liars. They get the benefit of lying, without any damage to their precious self-image. My comment: It is more difficult for others to determine who benefits from half truths when more than one individual or research…

Multi-omic analysis features (SNPs, miRNA)

See also: Viral and Cellular Genomes Activate Distinct DNA Damage Responses Excerpt: Central to life is the faithful replication, inheritance, and maintenance of genomic DNA. The MRE11/RAD50/NBS1 (MRN) complex andATMplay a critical role in this biological mandate (Ciccia and Elledge, 2010). Cellular double-strand breaks (DSBs) are sensed by MRN and trigger the assembly of DNA damage response (DDR) foci that amplify global ATM signaling to induce cell-cycle arrest and DNA repair (Polo and Jackson, 2011). DNA viruses are an ancient…
