|Denyse finds her twin:|
Denyse O'Leary appears to have opened up a fresh new vein of tard. Said tard is named Susan Mazur and she works for something called "Scoop", which is some kind of journalism outfit in New Zealand.
I don't actually think that science is ignorant of snowflakes and I'd hardly call the Hydra's putting itself back together again "self organization", since that term is reserved for non-living things and Hydras are made of living cells. We're gradually learning about the chemical attractors and gradients that help cells assemble.
|But the scientific community has known for some time that natural selection has nothing to do with evolution. It also knows that self-organization is real, that is, matter can form without a genetic recipe – like the snowflake (non-living). It does this without external guidance. |
And that the Hydra (living), for example, can self-assemble its scattered cells even after being forced through a sieve. Yet, science elites continue to term self-assembly and self-organization "woo woo".
You can see how Denyse couldn't possibly resist raw uncut tard like this. (By the way, science says the genes are central because it somehow missed "morphology", according to Ms Mazar.
|Some of the Altenberg 16 or A-16, as I like to call them, have hinted that they’re trying to steer science in a more honest direction, that is, by addressing non-centrality of the gene.|
This is multiple-orgasm stuff for a certain Toronto based Journalist.
|Meanwhile, Swedish cytogeneticist Antonio Lima-de-Faria, author of the book Evolution without Selection, sees any continuance of the natural selection concept as "compromise". He says Darwinism and neo-Darwinism deal only with the biological or "terminal" phase of evolution and impede discovery of the real mechanism, which is "primaeval" – based on elementary particles, chemical elements and minerals (Chapter 6, "Knight of the North Star").|
Mazur is an idiot. Weve been dealing with her for months.
Thats who PZ and I were talking about on BloggingHeads (epigenetics).
