Beneficial Mutations have still not been found in the wild, though their existence was confidently predicted in the 1940s. Article published at http://www.takeondarwin.com asks, could they, like Unicorns, actually be mythical? ROSENDALE NY (PRWEB) February 06, 2013 Existence of the Beneficial Mutation was confidently predicted in the 1940s as part of the Modern Synthesis. In fact, if the Beneficial Mutation could be shown not to exist, the Modern Synthesis itself might be brought into...

In a comparison made between the actual progress of evolution and how it would have progressed if the mechanism had been genetic mutation and natural selection, the two progress in opposite directions. According to website http://www.takeondarwin.com, claims made for the Modern Synthesis are contradicted by what is known of the actual progress of evolution. ROSENDALE, NY (PRWEB) December 28, 2012 In Evolution Issue of the Month 8 published on the website http://www.takeondarwin.com...

Where´s the white hot furnace that powers evolution? For Darwin it lay in natural selection. The “Modern Synthesis” relocated it to genetic mutation. In the third of a series of articles published at http://www.takeondarwin.com, Contrarian Evolutionist author Shaun Johnston relocates it once again, to wherever variations in living creatures are created. (PRWEB) July 16, 2012 Modern evolutionary theory is the opposite of what people assumed when they first wondered what made...

Natural selection was never a good idea, according to Contrarian Evolutionist author Shaun Johnston in the second of a series of articles published at http://www.takeondarwin.com. Natural selection couldn't account for where species or variation came from; no wonder Darwin hesitated to publish it. Even now when it's combined with genetic mutation natural selection is still not a good idea, Johnston claims. Rosendale, NY (PRWEB) June 16, 2012 There isn't much for Darwin to be very famous...

National Science Foundation grants will bring together what's known about how species are related A new initiative aims to build a comprehensive tree of life that brings together everything scientists know about how all species are related, from the tiniest bacteria to the tallest tree. Researchers are working to provide the infrastructure and computational tools to enable automatic updating of the tree of life, as well as develop the analytical and visualization tools to study it....

Software developed by UB faculty conserves resources in a unique freshman bio lab An innovative, educational computing platform developed by University at Buffalo faculty members and hosted by the cloud (remote, high-capacity, scalable servers) is helping UB students understand parts of evolutionary biology on an entirely new level. Soon, high-school and middle-school students will benefit from the same tool as well. Pop! World, developed by UB faculty members with a $250,000 National Science...

Clement Loo, a University of Cincinnati doctoral student in the philosophy program, was one of the featured researchers at the biennial meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association Nov. 4-6 in Montreal, Quebec. The association promotes research, teaching and free discussion of issues in the philosophy of science. Loo presented research themed around a Nov. 4 session on biology, evolution and selection. His paper was titled, "Invasive Species and Evaluating the Relative Significance of the...

Using digital evolution techniques that give scientists the ability to watch evolution in action, Michigan State University researchers have shed new light on what it is that makes species altruistic. Defined as the ability to sacrifice yourself for the sake of others, altruism has been a bit of a genetic mystery. Understanding why altruism evolves is one of the fundamental challenges in evolutionary theory. However, a paper published online in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society by...

A genetic study of island lizards shows that even those that have been geographically isolated for many millions of years have not evolved into separate species as predicted by conventional evolutionary theory. Professor Roger Thorpe and colleagues Yann Surget-Groba and Helena Johansson, at Bangor University, UK, reveal their findings April 29 in the open-access journal PLoS Genetics. Since Darwin's study of the Galapagos Islands, archipelagos have played a central role in understanding how...


Word of the Day

  • The hard inner (usually woody) layer of the pericarp of some fruits (as peaches or plums or cherries or olives) that contains the seed.
This word comes from the Greek 'endon,' in, within, plus the Greek 'kardia,' heart.
