Excerpt 1) “It’s not clear why in the real world, the world made up of many particles, time only goes forward and entropy always increases,” Murch said.
My comment: Serious scientists are attempting to determine why entropy does not always increase. They realize that feedback loops link cause and effect from the quantum world to the real world of light-induced amino acid substitutions that differentiate all cell types of all individuals of all living genera. They know there must be conserved molecular mechanisms that link biophysically constrained chemistry and RNA-mediated protein folding.
Excerpt 2) In a world where time is symmetric, however, is there such a thing as cause and effect? To find out, Murch proposes to run a qubit experiment that would set up feedback loops (which are chains of cause and effect) and try to run them both forward and backward.
My comment: A theoretical physicist asks (above) “…is there such a thing as cause and effect?” He hopes to establish it in the context of experiments that link forward and backward feedback loops. One decade ago, Eugene Koonin and others reported that backward feedback loops do not lead to information about how metabolic networks and genetic networks might be linked to a last universal universal ancestor via amino acids and protein evolution. See: A universal trend of amino acid gain and loss in protein evolution.
Excerpt: “We cannot conceive of a global external factor that could cause, during this time, parallel evolution of amino acid compositions of proteins in 15 diverse taxa that represent all three domains of life and span a wide range of lifestyles and environments. Thus, currently, the most plausible hypothesis is that we are observing a universal, intrinsic trend that emerged before the last universal common ancestor of all extant organisms.”
My comment: In Biblical Genesis, the link from light-induced amino acid substitutions to cell type differentiation in plants, in algae, and in sea slugs appears to show where the light of evolution came from. It is the light that epigenetically links the sun’s biological energy to the nutrient-dependent ecological adaptations manifested in the morphological and behavioral phenotypes of species from microbes to man. Given what is currently known about life, see for instance. Life is physics and chemistry and communication. How could life be anything else?
“It takes 20 or 30 minutes to run one of these experiments,” Murch said, “several weeks to process it, and a year to scratch our heads to see if we’re crazy or not.”
Kater Murch claims: “At the end of the day… I take solace in the fact that we have a real experiment and real data that we plot on real curves.”
Now, all he needs to do is put the data into a model of biologically-based cause and effect to see whether it fits into the context of what is already known. If not, Feynman has told us why experimental evidence is important.
Excerpt: “…the absence of a general theory of life is holding back our understanding of biology. Where this manifests itself mainly is in how we intervene with biological systems, medically and ecologically. The emergence of drug resistance in cancer, or herbicide resistance for that matter, are both examples of our chronic inability to control these systems.”
Q: I’ve never imagined a military-based rationale for “combating” the theory of evolution before. You addressed the task of “debunking evolution” by publishing a lot of papers. Where did you acquire the information used in these papers?
A: One of the first tests I learned to perform linked the sun’s biological energy via biophysical constraints on the chemistry of protein folding to levels of glucose in the circulating blood and in the cerebral spinal fluid of humans and all other mammals via spectroscopic analysis. Glucose levels linked light-induced amino acid substitutions in plants to algae and sea slugs via reactions that produced measurable difference in the amount of color produced at different wavelengths. Other chemistry tests linked the visible colors of the rainbow and the ultraviolet and infrared spectrum.
When I realized that both the invisible and the visible spectrums linked physics and chemistry to the conserved molecular mechanisms of nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled reproduction in all animals, I though I had won the war against the ignorance of theorists who have continued to kill people with their theories about mutation-driven evolution. However, I’ve continued to learn the same lesson. Fighting against ignorance is futile.
My hope now is to be somewhat effective in the context of disease prevention by linking the sun’s biological energy to metabolic networks and genetic networks, which are currently evaluated in the context of nutrigenomics and pharmacogenomics, which link single base pair changes to single amino acid substitutions and nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled differences in morphological and behavioral phenotypes.
