Retraction Watch: Erm, about that concerning peer review process. Elsevier also was the publisher of the equally risible book chapter claiming that COVID-19 came to earth on a meteorite.
Fine-tuning in biology shouldn’t be surprising. Why should biology be different from the rest of the universe?
Note: “these virus-like entities that have been remodeling our ancestral genome since the dawn of times,” says Didier Trono.” Right. We are told that many of the French have no use for lumpen-Darwinism. One can see why not.
The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) offers a presentation on the genes that just appear from nowhere, orphan genes.
It’s not enough that DNA is a language but now it has proofreaders? Keep moving along, folks, no design to see here…
Or is it epigenetics? At Science: “But even if the discovery is confirmed, Peng says he is leery of calling the modified adenine an addition to the genetic code. ‘Maybe [part] of the ‘epigenetic code’ instead?'”
Researchers: “To their surprise, the researchers discovered that the plants do not need a particularly large number of genes for carnivory. Instead, the three species studied are actually among the most gene-poor plants known. ” Yes, because – as Mike Behe says – Darwin Devolves.
Robert J. Marks and Oxford mathematician John Lennox discuss that in connection with Lennox’s new book, 2084: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Humanity (2020).
At ScienceDaily: “It’s like an engine mechanic who has a set of tools at his disposal,” Dr. Sung said. “The tool he uses depends on the issue that needs to be repaired. In like fashion, each DNA repair tool in our cells is designed to repair a distinctive type of break in our DNA.”
Physics was “hiding its deepest mysteries” thousands of years ago too before anyone uncovered laws for how it works. There are still mysteries in physics, of course, but they are now more basic. The laws are now known. Let’s hope the same proves true for biology.
We didn’t realize that people still took Dollo’s Law seriously.
Preisser: Actually, this experiment runs counter to what one ought to expect if the evolutionary paradigm were actually true.
And starts to acknowledge some harsh realities that most Darwinists drown in a word salad of obfuscation.
Remember the guy who showed us a CD of his genome and said this is me? Naw, we didn’t think so at the time either, but read on…
Some think it might just be bacterial DNA but, as Bailleul points out, how hard is it to tell bacterial genetic material from dino stuff?
