The fly’s specialized neurons either multiply or divide incoming signals in order to pinpoint the location of a sound or the direction of movement. How likely is this to happen without any intelligence behind nature at all?
Apparently, constraint is quite strict. That’s a problem for vast claims about natural selection.
Researchers: Tohoku University scientists have, for the first time, provided experimental evidence that cell stickiness helps them stay sorted within correct compartments during development. How tightly cells clump together, known as cell adhesion, appears to be enabled by a protein better known for its role in the immune system.
They said it. We didn’t. “Blowing the dogma out of the water”
The memory only lasted about five generations but the fact that it happens at all is significant. … It might help in understanding why many families seem to replay “addiction tapes” into the third and fourth generation.
It’s not going to be easy.
From ScienceDaily: Fruit fly research challenges neutral theory of molecular evolution and suggests one day we may be prescribed diets according to our genes. Fruit fly larvae with a noted mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutation showed a pronounced increase in development when eating high carbohydrate diet of banana, but stagnated on a high protein diet of Read More…
