Ecology is my theology

Rev. Michael Dowd (with my emphasis):

Ecology is my theology.

Integrity is my salvation.

Ensuring a just and healthy future is my mission.”

James V. Kohl (Medical laboratory scientist) Ecological variation leads to ecological adaptations via conserved molecular mechanisms, not by random mutations and natural selection.

Professor Nava Ben-Zvi, said that learning about evolution is not the primary function of the decision, but rather to use it as a building block for students to learn more about their ecology.

Dr. Jay R. Feierman: “I am absolutely certain that if you showed this statement to any professor of biology or genetics in any accredited university anywhere in the world that 100% of them would say that “Random mutations are the substrate upon which directional natural selection acts” is a correct and true statement.”

Only “Ecology is my theology” is supported by experimental evidence that attests to how ecological variation leads to biophysically-constrained ecological adaptations via natural selection for nutrients that are metabolized to the species-specific pheromones that control the physiology of reproduction in species from microbes to man.

The statement by Feierman about random mutations and natural selection may be supported by biology teachers and population geneticists who have not learnt anything about biology and genetics during the past decade or more. However,  “If you learnt evolutionary biology and genetics a decade or more ago you need to be aware that those debates have moved on very considerably, as has the experimental and field work on which they are based.

If, for example, Feierman had learned anything about biology or genetics since 1964, he might have learned that without learning– according to Dobzhansky (1964) he could never be more than a bird watcher or butterfly collector. “The notion has gained some currency that the only worthwhile biology is molecular biology. All else is “bird watching” or “butterfly collecting.” Bird watching and butterfly collecting are occupations manifestly unworthy of serious scientists!”

Instead, after a thorough review of my model in 1995 at a conference we both attended,  Feierman asked “What about birds?”  I have never taken him seriously since then, but as moderator of the International Society for Human Ethology’s yahoo group, he has seriously prevented my dissemination of accurate information about biologically based cause and effect for many years.

It is apparent that he represents the views of  ISHE and that members also prefer to not learn anything about how ecological variation leads to ecological adaptations so that they can continue to tout the pseudoscientific nonsense of evolutionary theory. Feierman’s categorization of ISHE as HBES-lite should have been the last straw, but nothing has changed during the past year despite my 2013 presentation at the ISHE Summer Institute. A 5.5 minute video with narration of my poster presentation that linked RNA-mediated events to cell type differentiation via amino acid substitution is here.

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.
