Standard peer review criticisms

Criticisms of the nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled evolutionary model by Andrew Jones aka anonymous_9001 …

Complaint: “Based on his writings, both published and unpublished, James Kohl presents an unsupported challenge to modern evolutionary theory and misrepresentations of established scientific terms and others’ research.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

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.
