These findings provide new evidence for a possible link between viral infections and chemoautotrophic production in the microbial food web.
My comment: I hereby stake my claim to the invention of the term”hecatombic evolution.” At the forthcoming meeting of the Royal Society next month, I expect full consideration to be given to use of “hecatombic evolution” to replace neo-Darwinian evolution and/or the “Modern Synthesis” or mutation-driven evolution until everyone in the world realizes the “hecatombic evolution” also is not possible within the context of what is known about the biophysically constrained energy-dependent links from autophagy to chromosomal rearrangements, which enable the nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled biodiversity of species from microbes to humans.
SARCASM ALERT: If you are a pseudoscientist, it’s time to forget everything you know or should have learned about polycomb activities and jump on the band-wagon to support hecatombic evolution.
Don’t be the last to look as foolish as the supporters of mutation-driven evolution look now that everyone knows no experimental evidence of biologically-based cause and effect supports their ridiculous claims.
If you use hecatomb in any context whatsoever, you can make history and potentially become as infamous as Richard Dawkins. Hecatombic evolution is the only type of evolution left, and it is as ridiculous a misrepresentation of facts as everything that has come before it.
It’s my turn to invent a term for use in discussions of what pseudoscientists believe. They won’t claim to believe in mutation-driven evolution because they know there is no model for that. But they won’t make any other claim about what they believe in. Start asking if they believe in hecatombic evolution, and I will help them to define what they believe in. I will try to ensure there will be no doubt left. It will be obvious that pseudoscientists will believe anything anyone tells them except the scientific truth about how ecological variation must be linked to ecological adaptation in all living genera.
