The policy of “Nature” to block information that conflicts with their biased reporting has led to dissemination of more pseudoscientific nonsense. This time the publication is in “PNAS” with discussion at physics in the context of astrochemical and prebiotic evolution. Aldehydes and sugars from evolved precometary ice analogs: Importance of ices in astrochemical and prebiotic evolution
Excerpt: “Prior research had found that cosmic rays and ultraviolet radiation can help convert the chemicals that make up the bulk of these interstellar ices into complex organic matter, such as the precursors of proteins and fats.”
My comment: Ongoing attempts to trick people into believing that the biodiversity of life on Earth was seeded by deep-space events exemplify the foolishness of the biologically uniformed. Why are they biologically uninformed? Why isn’t anyone discussing the role of amino acids (the precursors of proteins and fats) in cell type differentiation of all cells of all individuals of all species? One reason may be that “Nature” blocked my comment on the article Force of nature gave life its asymmetry. I attempted to address the following statements:
Excerpt: “In 2011, Meierhenrich and colleages showed that such light could transfer its handedness to amino acids.
But even demonstrating how a common physical phenomenon would have favoured left-handed amino acids over right-handed ones would not tell us that this was how life evolved…”
This is still cause for concern: “Nature News” reviewed Chirally Sensitive Electron-Induced Molecular Breakup and the Vester-Ulbricht Hypothesis. The authors claimed this:
Excerpt: “All molecular forms of life possess a chiral asymmetry, with amino acids and sugars found, respectively, in L- and D-enantiomers only .”
My comment: Glycine is an achiral amino acid, which means it is NOT found in L- and D-enantiomers only. Now for the latest discovery.
Glycolaldehyde (HOCH 2 -CH=O) is the smallest possible molecule that contains both an aldehyde group and a hydroxyl group. “Glycolaldehyde forms from many precursors, including the amino acid glycine.” This suggests to me that achiral glycine was required for formation of the first sugar-related compound, which also is “…the smallest possible molecule that contains both an aldehyde group and a hydroxyl group.”
Taken together, the result of this incomprehensible nonsense that pushes the “origins of life” on Earth back into “Deep-Space” should serve as a warning to anyone unable to see what those who have consistently failed to link physics to chemistry and molecular biology would like you to believe. They do not want you to believe that Life is physics and chemistry and communication or think in terms of Life as physics and chemistry: A system view of biology.
They want you to believe that the molecules of life somehow evolved in deep space and somehow managed to arrive on earth as L- and D-enantiomers only. They do not want anyone with a knowledge of physics, chemistry, and molecular biology to inform you that what they want you to believe in is pseudoscientific nonsense. For example, not only does glycine appear to be responsible for formation the smallest possible molecule that contains both an aldehyde group and a hydroxyl group, its insertion in the decapeptide known as gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH), links the stability of DNA in all organized vertebrate genomes to the stability of the organized genomes of all crustaceans and insects via the conserved molecular mechanisms of their nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction. Thus, it is important to note that a light-induced amino acid substitution also appears to link plant life and animal life via the biophysically constrained chemistry of protein folding that is nutrient-dependent and appears to be controlled by pheromones that enable the fixation of amino acid substitutions in the DNA of organized genomes in species from microbes to man.
On 1/19/15, in the “Quantum Biology, coherence and decoherence” (secret group). I responded and wrote:
Re:”This is a quantum biology group, remember” Yes, the obvious link is biophotonics. This fact is not being addressed: “To go from a bacterium to people is less of a step than to go from a mixture of amino acids to a bacterium.” — Lynn Margulis (1996).
I’ve see no attempt to link physics via biophotonics to biology. The genetic code does NOT emerge. Claims that anything emerges in the context of “Life is physics and chemistry and communication‘ are assumptions based on de Vries definition of “mutation.” EMERGENCE IS P.S. (Pseudoscientific Nonsense).
I was subsequently banned from Ulla Mattfolk’s secret group.
