Perry Marshall continues to tout pseudoscientific nonsense and criticize others who don’t accept his ridiculous claims.
See, for comparison:. Identification of Amino Acid Substitutions Supporting Antigenic Change of Influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 Viruses
The high mutation rate of influenza A viruses and the observation that single substitutions caused substantial antigenic change during evolution of A(H3N2), A(H1N1), and influenza B viruses contradict the relatively low rate at which influenza viruses have changed antigenically (11).
My comment: Koel et al., (2013) admitted that The major antigenic changes of the influenza virus are primarily caused by a single amino acid near the receptor binding site. Earlier today, I decided to see if BF Koel, or any of his co-authors had learned how nutrient-dependent cell type differentiation links atoms to ecosystems.
Like Perry Marshall, they still appear to be horribly confused. They seem to think that a mutation is the same thing as a nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated amino acid substitution. I suspect that their confusion is the common theme that prevents scientific progress from eliminating neo-Darwinian nonsense about beneficial mutations and evolution.

My comment: John Cryan explained more about biologically-based cause and effect than any of the presenters whose works should also be examined in the light of his claims. Finally, I’ve seen evidence presented that clearly links metabolic networks to genetic networks via nutrient-dependent microRNAs, adhesion proteins, and the physiology of reproduction, which must link energy-dependent changes in base pairs from RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions to supercoiled DNA.

Given the recently identified stability, uptake and functionality of food- and milk-derived miRNA in vivo, HM miRNA are likely to contribute to infant protection and development.
My comment: The microRNAs in human milk establish the connections from the microRNAome of bull sperm and the physiology of reproduction in soil bacteria to UV-light induced RNA-mediated nutrient-dependent DNA repair in plants and animals.
The neuroscientifically established connections link supercoiled DNA to protection from virus-driven entropy. It may be interesting for others to learn how many established facts Dr. Cryan can present within established time constraints.

Milk is a highly specialized nutrient and signaling system of mammalian evolution that apparently shapes the epitranscriptome of the milk recipient via FTO-mediated modifications of RNA nucleotides. Future research should unravel milk´s biological impact on the recently recognized dual axis of coordinated regulation between the genome and the epigenome and the transcriptome and the epitranscriptome, respectively .

Reported 3/17/16 as: What’s in the breast milk affects microbes in the baby
My comment: The maternal microRNAome and paternal microRNAome establish the innate immune system and metabolic networks linked to genetic networks of human infants via nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated DNA repair in the context of the physiology of reproduction linked to supercoiled DNA and transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of morphological and behavioral phentotypes in all invertebrates and vertebrates. If not for neo-Darwinian pseudoscience, the link from virus-driven energy theft would have been examined in the context of all pathology, and most pathology might already have been eliminated. All pathology could be more effectively treated if only the serious scientists who know how cell type differentiation occurs could have prevailed against the ignorance of theorists who think that beneficial mutations can lead to evolution of one species from another — given enough time.
