EVOLUTION: Not by genetic mutations, but by Epigenetic Adaptation

This article focusses on bacterial evolutionary change, but the principle of what is discussed is fully applicable to all organisms including ourselves. For instance, a Neo-Darwinian explanation of bacterial evolution and other species across the whole spectrum of life would go something like this: Species evolve and eventually can become a different species via generations…

Epigenetics explains how Darwin’s Finches adapt to their environment

http://gbe.oxfordjournals.org/content/6/8/1972.full Interesting article from science paper (see link above) explaining epigenetics as a means of species variation and adaptability. Yes, yet again, we find that all speciation variation is explicable by epigenetic means (operating above the genes, changing their expressionvia environmental cues) and NOT BY DARWINIAN means. I came across this article via the uncommon…

The Epigenetic Revolution in Evolution is long overdue… but it’s happening

Junk & the Epigenetic caterpillar how new and not so new discoveries in biology are overturning our conventional model of evolution & health (credit: Wikispaces educational resources) A new synthesis is dawning… Professor Denis Noble (eminent physiologist) states: […] all the central assumptions of the Modern Synthesis (often also called Neo-Darwinism) have been disproven. Moreover,…

“first Minoan CD-ROM,” Code finally Cracked for the Ancient Phaistos Disk!

The Phaistos Disk front & back views. Parts of the article in Huffington Post reads as follows: Some of the code deciphered: The disk can be read in a spiral direction from the outside rim to the inside. Using what previous studies have shown about Cretan hieroglyphics, and the scripts Minoan Linear A and Mycenaean…
