Cells are chock full of information systems, not just DNA

From Jonathan Wells at ENST, looking at a variety of systems, including the bioelectric code: Regional differences in cells and embryos can be specified in other ways besides localization of RNAs in the cortex. Two of those ways have been studied in great detail: the “sugar code” and the “bioelectric code.” Most proteins in living Read More…

Fine-tuning?: Earth slows the deadly solar wind to a gentle breeze

One reason why life can exist here. From ScienceDaily: A new study describes the first observations of the process of electron heating in Earth’s bow shock. The researchers found that when the electrons in the solar wind encounter the bow shock, they momentarily accelerate to such a high speed that the electron stream becomes unstable Read More…

Evolution Intelligent Design Mind

From EU research mag: New brain theory “as important as evolution”?

From Horizon: the EU Research and Innovation Magazine, Our brains make sense of the world by predicting what we will see and then updating these predictions as the situation demands, according to Lars Muckli, professor of neuroscience at the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging in Glasgow, Scotland. He says that this predictive processing framework theory is Read More…

Extraterrestrial life Intelligent Design Origin Of Life

Skeptic: Panspermia (life came from elsewhere than Earth) is “pseudoscience”

From Steven Novella at Neurologica, replying to Ted Steele, the paper’s senior author: The claim is that examinations of meteorites have found microfossils representing single-celled life, either bacteria or even algae (eukaryotes). However, these claims are not generally accepted by the scientific community, and therefore cannot be used as a solid premise, let alone the Read More…
