12 Essential Scientific Concepts
It is important to note that this representation of essential concepts is made by
My favorite pseudoscientist, is little PeeZee Myers. He made himself known to me in an attack on my claims about the epigenetic links from chromosomal rearrangements to all biomass and all biodiversity.

Virtually all his idiot minions attacked me for the same reason. They know nothing about how nutrient-dependent base pair changes and RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions link the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in the organized genomes of species from microbes to humans.
When I posted an example that clearly linked top-down causation to the nutrient-dependent physiology of reproduction via chromosomal rearrangements in white-throated sparrows, PZ ended my participation by calling me a homophobe. My award-winning review of human male sexual orientiation suggests I am a serious scientist, and not a crank, and not a homophobe. But, what else can others do when confronted with facts about cell type differentiation?

- This model also provides a detailed gene–cell–tissue–organ–organ system pathway from sexually dimorphic hormone-associated olfactory input and from MHC/HLA-associated olfactory input to sexually dimorphic behavior.
- Failure to incorporate any of the steps in this pathway makes it impossible to directly connect to sexual preferences and sexual behavior, a logical sequence of events that must somehow and somewhere begin with the effect of sensory input from the social environment.

My comment: Based on what I have since learned about her atheistic nonsensical perspective, I do not plan to read any of these chapters. There are too many serious scientists with works that deserve my full attention because they focus on what is known about self vs nonself identification in the context of nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated cell type differentiation that is linked from the physiology of reproduction to the differentiation of cell types in all living genera.
Simply put, at a time when expert neuroscientists continue to detail what is known about links from ecological variation to ecological adaptation via the biophysically constrained chemistry of the nutient-dependent RNA-mediated physiology of reproduction, anyone who starts anywhere that is downstream from an atoms to ecosystems model is likely to be an atheistic pseudoscientist.
Viskontas makes that likelihood perfectly clear. In the context of her ridiculous misrepresentations she failed to link what is known about phenols from the sun’s biological energy to the differentiation of cell types in soil bacteria, differentiation in the cell types of plants, and differentiation of the cell types in animals.
I’m not going to take the time to find what she claimed about taxol in the audiobook. Suffice it to say that by the time she mentioned the bark of the yew tree and the need to synthesize the chemical for effective cancer treatment, I had already realized the problem. She is biologically uninformed and pretends to know about “Mother Nature” as a tinkerer rather than to learn about how cell type differentiation is linked from ecological variation to ecological adaptation by RNA-mediated DNA repair and nutrient-dependent microRNAs linked to adhesion proteins that protect all organized genomes from virus-driven entropy.

My comment: In two reports published on the same day, Zimmer fails to link nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled RNA-mediated cell type differentiation across species from microbes to humans via what is known to serious scientists about cell type differentiation in the context of an atoms to ecosystems model.
