Paleontologists have long hungered for a species halfway between human and ape, to cast in the world’s face as evidence for mud at work. What have they found?
And THIS is the type of human evolution theory that makes Darwin’s followers a culturally dominant voice?
I previously highlighted the work of Jean Claude Perez in my Vodka! essay. I had encountered Perez work in my google searches related to the 3-base periodicity pattern in DNA. The 3-base pattern seems widely acknowledged in the literature as On the origin of three base periodicity in genomes. Genomes of almost all organisms have […]
Because “natural selection,” as generally understood, is a spook that can’t prevent anything.
The Canadians have suggested that we start by trying to do it in as inconspicuous a manner as possible. Our purpose is fact-finding, not attention-seeking.
3-base periodicity is a well-known non-random feature of the DNA. That is to say, a base will sometimes be repeated 3 nucleotides away. This should happen randomly at a frequency of about 25% if all the bases are equally represented, but I got something that was slightly away from random. 3-base periodicity is a well […]
Fair warning to the regular readership. Typically I like to cover intelligent design and evolution-related issues, but I trust I may be permitted a bit of a detour. There have been a couple of interesting posts recently by Sal, vjtorley and Barry about issues of a more philosophical bent. vjtorley’s OP, in particular, quoted parts […]
Stretches of DNA that code for proteins are considered non-random, but what about DNA as a whole? DNA Densely Packed without Knots “‘We’ve long known that on a small scale, DNA is a double helix…But if the double helix didn’t fold further, the genome in each cell would be two meters long. Scientists have not […]
Violates Einstein’s special relativity. So if we can’t dump the Big Bang, we could maybe dump Einstein?
The researchers’ thesis does not, however, account for the Big Bang. That’s a biggie, so to speak.
Yesterday, “News” brought readers a fascinating story about a report from Science Daily, titled, Reconstructed ancient ocean reveals secrets about the origin of life (25 April 2014), which was also picked up by Linda Geddes, writing for New Scientist. Reading the Science Daily article, I was struck by the extraordinary naivete of mainstream science reporters […]
There is a huge amount of money tied up in education that is either mandated by law or required for a profession. Cronies protect their turf
“Evolution,” used this way, = “magic” and we were all told not to believe in magic.
So the earliest oceans featured chemical conditions that could somehow result in metabolism without cells? Any evidence that it ever happened since?
Well, this is Dawkins’ “selfish gene” with a vengeance. It seeks only to replicate itself, not you.
