Something from no thing

The Bridge From Nowhere

How is it possible to get something from nothing?

Excerpt: “Evolution has trained us to find causal patterns at any cost. As our ancestors wandered the African savanna, the ability to suss out effects from their causes marked a line between life and death. She ate that speckled mushroom and then fell ill.” 

My comment: Thank you for your explanation of how pattern recognition may be beneficial to serious scientists.

Creation enabled our nutrient-dependent ability to find causal patterns that cost us nothing. The fact that everything is connected to everything else is perfectly clear. It led some people to realize that eating some things can make us ill, which supports the claim that health and illness are nutrient-dependent. The fact that reproduction also is nutrient-dependent links what organisms eat to their species survival. 

We’ve since learned that “Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction” via amino acid substitutions and cell type differentiation in species from microbes to man. Thus, anyone who believes that mutation-initiated natural selection led to the evolution of biodiversity — or that “Evolution has trained us…” to do anything — probably does not believe in causal patterns of biophysically-constrained biologically-based cause and effect that cost us nothing to believe in. For example, it costs nothing to believe light-harvesting functions link amino acid substitutions that differentiate cell types in plants and animals.

Similarly, it costs us nothing to believe that docosahexaenoic acid links the phrase “Let there be light!” from physics and its irreplaceable role in neural cell signaling via ecological variation that links quantum physics to quantum biology and ecological adaptations manifested in the increasing organismal complexity of brains.

Taken together, these facts suggest it costs us nothing to believe that ecological adaptations are manifested in the morphological and behavioral diversity of species from microbes to man via conserved molecular mechanisms that link the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in organized genomes.However, evolutionary theorists seem to somehow have not been trained to find causal patterns that molecular biologists have known about for more than 50 years. See for example: Biology, molecular and organismic  “Ingram and others found that hemoglobin S differs from A in the substitution of just a single amino acid, valine in place of glutamic acid in the beta chain of the hemoglobin molecule.”

Apparently, evolution has trained theorists to not find causal patterns at any cost. Evolutionary theorists linked the hemoglobin S variant from a mutation to natural selection and the evolution of human diversity with a theory that has never been substantiated by experimental evidence of biologically plausible cause and effect. Dobzhansky (1973), however, noted that “…the so-called alpha chains of hemoglobin have identical sequences of amino acids in man and the chimpanzee, but they differ in a single amino acid (out of 141) in the gorilla in “Nothing in Biology Makes Any Sense Except in the Light of Evolution.

It would be great if evolutionary theorists would look at pattern recognition from the perspective offered this article about something from no thing and recognize the pattern of bio-physically constrained biologically-based cause and effect. After all, it costs them nothing to believe in facts.

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.
