Solving biology’s mysteries by learning about ecology and pseudoscience

All biological energy comes from the sun.

Excerpt: “The holy grail is to find that quantum effects stimulate biological processes that are relevant to medicine,” says Al-Khalili. “Looking to the long term, if these effects underlie the mechanism of DNA mutations, that could allow for real progress in the treatment of cancer.”

My comment: In 2014 the Israeli school system decided to teach the theory of evolution in their middle schools. See: Israeli Middle Schools School to Include Theory of Evolution

Excerpt: “…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.”

My comment: Carl Sagan’s comments in the short video can now be compared to comments by Richard Feynman on pseudoscience. Unlike middle schools in Israel, some schools in other countries teach the theory of evolution as if biological energy could somehow be placed into the context of mutations that cause organisms to automagically evolve their increasingly complex morphological and behavioral phenotypes.

See for contrast: Molecular eyes: proteins that transform light into biological informationAllostery without a conformational change? Revisiting the paradigm; Hysteresis in Human UDP-Glucose Dehydrogenase Is Due to a Restrained Hexameric Structure That Favors Feedback Inhibition.

Ask yourself: Why are many school systems teaching the pseudoscientific nonsense of evolutionary theory when everything known about physics and the chemistry of protein folding links conserved molecular mechanisms from ecological variation to ecological adaptations via the biological energy from the sun?

Excerpt: “The metabolic pathways and the molecular interactions identified here highlight the importance of context in studying pathways involved in tissue specificity and disease.”

Clearly, pseudoscientists do not understand the fact that biological energy leads to increasing organismal complexity via conserved molecular mechanisms and that mutations lead to pathology. This pits Carl Sagan’s commentary against the accurate representations of Richard Feynman about pseudoscience. See the obvious conclusion that will come from any further debate: Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction. Mutations perturb these feedback loops. They link excess biological energy to pathology not to ecological adaptations. Excess sugar intake leads to cancer; excess sun exposure leads to cancer. Get it?

Why isn’t that being taught in all schools?


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.
