Adaptive evolution: nutrient-driven; pheromone-controlled

The friend who acquired the Pheromones.com domain for me in 1996 asked for a second six-word story after I contributed the first one.

1.      Adaptive evolution: nutrient-driven; pheromone-controlled.

2.      Mutations do not cause adaptive evolution.

These two six-word stories could eliminate past decades of “Just-So” storytelling by social scientists and evolutionary theorists who have been taught to believe – and who enjoy teaching others to believe — that all aspects of our required ecological, social, neurogenic, and socio-cognitive niche construction have resulted from random mutations. How can it not be perfectly clear that Natural Selection is for food and that Sexual Selection is for nutrient-dependent pheromone production in species from microbes to man? How can it not be clear that nutrient chemical-dependent pheromone-controlled reproduction causes adaptive evolution?

Many people ignore the basic principles of biology and levels of biological organization required to link sensory cause to behavioral affect, which is probably why they continue to believe that random mutations cause adaptive evolution. That is the most ridiculous theory I have ever encountered in the context of life on this planet, but it will not be eliminated by six-word stories or book-length diatribes.

The ridiculous theory that random mutations cause adaptive evolution can only be eliminated by repeatedly telling the two six-word stories above until the ignorant masses realize the scientific truth and begin to hold it in higher regard instead of clinging to their ridiculous theories.

About James V. Kohl 1307 Articles
James Vaughn Kohl was the first to accurately conceptualize human pheromones, and began presenting his findings to the scientific community in 1992. He continues to present to, and publish for, diverse scientific and lay audiences, while constantly monitoring the scientific presses for new information that is relevant to the development of his initial and ongoing conceptualization of human pheromones. Recently, Kohl integrated scientific evidence that pinpoints the evolved neurophysiological mechanism that links olfactory/pheromonal input to genes in hormone-secreting cells of tissue in a specific area of the brain that is primarily involved in the sensory integration of olfactory and visual input, and in the development of human sexual preferences. His award-winning 2007 article/book chapter on multisensory integration: The Mind’s Eyes: Human pheromones, neuroscience, and male sexual preferences followed an award winning 2001 publication: Human pheromones: integrating neuroendocrinology and ethology, which was coauthored by disinguished researchers from Vienna. Rarely do researchers win awards in multiple disciplines, but Kohl’s 2001 award was for neuroscience, and his 2007 “Reiss Theory” award was for social science. Kohl has worked as a medical laboratory scientist since 1974, and he has devoted more than twenty-five years to researching the relationship between the sense of smell and the development of human sexual preferences. Unlike many researchers who work with non-human subjects, medical laboratory scientists use the latest technology from many scientific disciplines to perform a variety of specialized diagnostic medical testing on people.
