Draining the academic swamp of parasites

National Academies Revise Conflict of Interest Policy The proposed changes follow revelations in recent years that committee members preparing reports for the Academies did not disclose industry relationships. By Ashley P. Taylor | May 3, 2017 Excerpt: They are also thinking about including not only current activities and relationships, as they do now, but past ones when determining whether or not a committee member has a COI. See for comparison: Ian Hodder: Çatalhöyük, Religion & Templeton’s 25% My comment: Past…

Food for thought: Penrose v Ellis (1)

Food for thought.   The most popular ideas of atheists may still include hypothetical biogenic features that arrived from outer space. That’s how pseudoscientific nonsense appears to become a fact of life on Earth.   All experimental evidence of energy-dependent biologically-based cause and effect must be suppressed or ignored, and that’s what atheists prefer to do. See for instance: Hypothetical biogenic features in the context of the Alan Hills fossil. (Thanks to John Hewitt for reminding me of this.) On…

Ab initio cell wall invention, emergence, and evolution (1)

Suzan Mazur continues to make giant leaps forward for all serious scientists by forcing pseudoscientists to admit that they know nothing about the energy-dependent de novo creation of life. That means they know nothing about how virus-driven energy theft causes the degradation of messenger RNA (mRNA) that links loss of function from bacteria to archaea and L-forms (without a cell wall). For comparison, nutrient energy-dependent viral latency prevents the virus-driven degradation of supercoiled DNA. Mazur’s recent chat with Jeffery Errington…

Demoncrats fight polycombic ecological adaptation

Comey sent Congress letter on Clinton emails despite DOJ warning it would breach policy Excerpt: …we don’t ordinarily tell Congress about ongoing investigations, but here I feel an obligation to do so given that I testified repeatedly in recent months that our investigation was completed,” Comey wrote, referring to the Bureau’s previous investigation into Clinton’s private email server. “I also think it would be misleading to the American people were we not to supplement the record.

The Aquatic Ape / Waterside Ape divergence

See also: The Aquatic Ape: New evidence? (9/8/16) Walt Patrick  Now that I’m semi-retired…. My major focus is the development of village-scale energy sovereignty. I believe that sustainable community stands on an interlocking foundation of effective and sustainable energy systems, and I’m working to develop ways that a community can meet its energy needs without having to rely on multi-national energy corporations. My comment: Thanks to Walt for introducing me to Elaine Morgan’s work. He loaned me his copy of…

Energy-dependent biodiversity (4)

 Censorship & Upcoming Royal Society Evo Meeting Excerpt: In an attempt to do damage control, one of the organizers of the Royal Society paradigm shift meeting (not Denis Noble) sent me an email, which follows, asking that I stop referring to the Royal Society meeting as such. Why? Because he speaks for scientists who think they can control the scientific discourse as it was controlled at the time of Darwin. My comment:  Re: The need for discussion of viruses (e.g.,…

RNA-mediated physics, chemistry, and molecular epigenetics (2)

9/16/15 This is an excellent introduction to speculation about how quantum mechanics might be linked from physics and chemistry to the conserved molecular mechanisms of epigenetically-effected biologically-based RNA-mediated cause and effect, which all serious scientists already know must link angstroms to ecosystems via the innate immune system, the physiology of reproduction, and supercoiled DNA. The introduction to speculation may help you to explain why more scientific progress has not been made since 1944, when Schrodinger claimed: Indeed, in the case…

Assumptions prove ignorance

Testing Einstein’s Equivalence Principle With Fast Radio Bursts Excerpt: Assuming as a lower limit that the time delays are caused mainly by the gravitational potential of the Milky Way, we prove that fast radio bursts (FRBs) of cosmological origin can be used to constrain the EEP with high accuracy. My comment: Theoretical physicists are allowed to start with assumptions and link them to theories via what they consider to be proof of their assumptions. Unfortunately, the proof of their assumptions…

Genome sequencing, cadherins, and quantum consciousness

Brave new epigenomes: the dawn of epigenetic engineering Reported as: Opinion: Engineering the Epigenome Excerpt: . ..until recently, we were not able to assess the influence of individual marks on gene activity because it was only possible to alter chromatin marks globally through mutational approaches or pharmacological inhibition. My comment: Mutational approaches led to assumptions about cell type differentiation that failed to include the role of viruses, viral microRNAs,  and the nutrient-dependent microRNAs that prevent the accumulation of viral microRNAs…

Riding the wrong direction

Riding the Evolution Paradigm Shift With Eugene Koonin Excerpt: The entire evolution of the microbial world and the virus world, and the interaction between microbes and viruses and other life forms have been left out of the Modern Synthesis… Excerpt: [T]he entire ideology of personalized medicine should be taken with many grains of salt. My comment: Personalized medicine links the conserved molecular mechanisms of biologically-based cause and effect from nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated gene duplication to RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions, which differentiate…
