Criticisms of the nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled evolutionary model by Andrew Jones aka anonymous_9001 ….email@example.com
Carthage College is a four-year private liberal arts college affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Complaint: “Based on his writings, both published and unpublished, James Kohl presents an unsupported challenge to modern evolutionary theory and misrepresentations of established scientific terms and others’ research. It was a mistake to let such a sloppy review through to be published.”
Editor’s response: The 2013 review article by James Vaughn Kohl published in Socioaffective Neuroscience & Psychology and criticized in the above Letter to the Editor was subjected to standard peer review and the revised version was accepted by me after it had been accepted by both reviewers.
My response: Andrew Jones cites Dr. PZ Myers’ blog, Pharyngula (Kohl, 2014b) in the context of his claim that “A multitude of misconceptions and misunderstandings can be seen in his comments on Dr. PZ Myers’ blog, Pharyngula (Kohl, 2014b).” See One crank dies, another rises to take his place.
PZ Myers has attacked at least 2 others who have asserted the fact that chromosomal rearrangements, not mutations, link ecological variation to ecological adaptations without the pseudoscientific nonsense of mutation-initiated natural selection, which somehow supposedly leads to the evolution of biodiversity. I provided a link that supported those claims about chromosomal rearrangements and biodiversity in the morphological and behavioral phenotypes of white-throated sparrows. On the same day, I was banned from further participation on PZ Myers blog. Estrogen receptor α polymorphism in a species with alternative behavioral phenotypes clearly links chromosomal rearrangements to biodiversity via the model we detailed in our 1996 review: From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior
