After the debate

Bill Nye and Ken Ham debate creationism at Creation Museum

After the debate, I commented:

Ecological variation and nutrient-dependent life controlled by the metabolism of nutrients to species-specific pheromones that control the physiology of reproduction has replaced mutation-driven evolution in the context of a biologically plausible ecologically valid model for the Creation of new genes and organismal complexity.

The number of different proteins in different cell types of individuals in different species has established the obvious fact that the proteins did not result from mutations because mutations perturb protein folding. Most biology teachers still teach students that mutation-initiated natural selection is the cause of evolution.

It would have been great to hear either speaker address what is currently known about the conserved molecular mechanisms of species diversity that should long ago have eliminated mutation-driven evolution from any further consideration whatsoever.

Genetic incompatibilities are widespread within species

“Our central finding, that fitness epistasis is widespread within natural populations, indicates that the raw material to drive reproductive isolation is segregating contemporaneously within species and does not necessarily require, as proposed by the DMI model 22, the emergence of genetically incompatible mutations independently derived and fixed in allopatric lineages 23.”

Someone sarcastically complained that they didn’t understand my comment, so I added this: 

For example see:

A Living Nest?

Carl Zimmer asks: “Have the plants evolved any strategies to make their spore-bearing structures better material for nests? Do they lure the hummingbirds with special odors?”

YES is the biologically plausible and ecologically validated answer in species from microbes to man. From a Creationist perspective, “Yes” is the correct answer in the context of all plant and animal interactions because the molecular mechanisms of epigenetic cause and effect are conserved.

Plant life and animal life have common features at the cellular level. Biological Laws do more than suggest that ecological variation in nutrient availability leads to ecological adaptations. For comparison, “mutation-driven evolution” violates Laws of Biology, which biophysically constrain mutations that perturb the protein-folding required for increased organismal complexity (i.e., God’s Creation).

I think I could make a case for evolutionary theorists breaking the Laws of Biology with their theories, but doubt they will be prosecuted or persecuted for doing so. Similarly, Carl Zimmer will probably get away with presenting my life’s work in little quips like: “Do they lure the hummingbirds with special odors?” — after touting evolutionary theory for decades in everything he has written.

Suddenly, for Zimmer, special odors may be involved — as if food odors and social odors had not always been involved in Darwin’s ‘conditions of life,’ which reflect that every organism across God’s Creation must eat and reproduce — not merely mutate into another species to fit the evolutionary theorist’s limited perspectives.

About James V. Kohl 1308 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.
