Pseudoscientific nonsense about face and body recognition

It’s Thanks to Evolution That No Two Faces Are Alike, Study Finds

Excerpt: “….highly social insects rely on their distinctive face and body patterns to recognize each other…”

See: RNA and dynamic nuclear organization

My comment: The difference between RNA-mediated events and evolutionary events attributed to DNA is clear. There is no such thing as an evolutionary event that links cell type differentiation in one species to differentiation in another species via conserved molecular mechanisms in species from microbes to man. Only RNA-mediated events do that.

For example: “In wasps, manipulation of the genetics of evolved species-specific pheromones characterized the change in a pre-existing signaling molecule triggered by a glucose-dependent (Yadav, Joshi, & Gurjar, 1987) stereochemical inversion (Niehuis et al., 2013).”

The nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction links ecological variation via RNA-mediated events to the pheromone-controlled species-specific events that lead to nutrient-dependent reproduction and biodiversity.

Self vs non-self recognition is nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled in species from microbes to man by RNA-mediated events.

No evolutionary events have ever been described that could link mutations and natural selection to increasing organismal complexity of morphological and behavioral phenotypes.

That fact, when compared to what is known about RNA-mediated events, is an overlooked aspect of the pseudoscientific nonsense presented in this article on faces.

I can compare their nonsense to examples of how amino acid substitution differentiate the cell types of all individuals of all species via conserved molecular mechanisms, and have done so in a series of published works.

For example, see: Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model.

Also, ask what it is about facial attraction in homosexuals that can be linked to their sexual preferences.

“This model is attractive in that it solves the “binding problem” of sexual attraction. By that I mean the problem of why all the different features of men or women (visual appearance and feel of face, body, and genitals; voice quality, smell; personality and behavior, etc.) attract people as a more or less coherent package representing one sex, rather than as an arbitrary collage of male and female characteristics. If all these characteristics come to be attractive because they were experienced in association with a male- or female-specific pheromone, then they will naturally go together even in the absence of complex genetically coded instructions.” p-210 Gay, Straight, and the Reason Why: The Science of Sexual Orientation.

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.
