Exposing the 2nd Law to more ridicule (1)

Summary: Experiment demonstrates quantum mechanical effects from biological system Schrödinger (1944) linked the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight from the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in soil bacteria to all biodiversity. He then began to suspect that his colleagues, who displayed human idiocy, would kill him – if ever again he reasserted the facts. After 1944, Richard P. Feynman took a stand against the human idiocy, and lost. He was not killed, just ignored. Ignorance prevails. It always has. The virus-driven…

From E. coli to monkeys and mankind: Theories vs models

Hard Science: The Measure of All Things Natural w/Dr. J Michael Bailey (video) Published on 24 May 2017 First in a series of interviews DocAmitay had with Dr. J. Michael Bailey, controversial researcher who dares to ask questions that most do not dare to ask and that many do not want answered. The next few videos present a candid look at the man behind “the monster” created by Trans advocates, the media and those who oppose critical thinking and scientific…

Dobzhansky 1973 and precision medicine

MicroRNA-34 directly targets pair-rule genes and cytoskeleton component in the honey bee Our findings point to miR-34-5p as novel regulatory component in the complex molecular cascade that governs insect segmentation and to a broader role of miRNAs in the early development due to the detection of mature transcripts from both 5p and 3p arms for several precursor miRNAs. Thus, this work encourages further investigation to pinpoint miRNAs as fine tuners of insect early development. Anna Di Cosmo‘s group took the…

Energy-dependent de novo creation and neurogenesis (2)

They are really relics of the RNA world—pieces of RNA that are highly reactive, very small and which pair and bind other RNA and facilitate catalytic reactions,” Mangone says. “We don’t know much about them—where they come from or how they regulate gene expression, but they are very misregulated in many diseases.

A failed theory of cancer: two more decades of pseudoscience

1995 Neo-Darwinism has failed as an evolutionary theory 2016 Cancer and the transformation of life: An Interview with Athena Aktipis Excerpt: Cancer is evolution taking place inside multi-cellular organisms. Cancer cells are perversely adaptive and proliferate faster than normal cells. Since evolution has no foresight, it doesn’t matter that the end result of cancer evolution is the death of the cancer along with its host. But cancer cells are subject to the same evolutionary pressures as other cells. Amazingly, only…

How Do You Know When You’ve Found Them All? A Question That Applies To Beetles and Cancer Genes Alike by Carl Zimmer Conclusion: “Cancer biologists and beetle experts are not all that different when you think about it. They walk the same foggy road together, a long way from the end.” My comment: Only the cancer biologists and beetle experts who believe in mutation-driven evolution are walking a road together. It’s not a foggy road. It’s brain fog that makes them similar.…
