A New Clue to How Life Originated

What I found odd about

Caitlin E. Cornell, Roy A. Black, Mengjun Xue, Helen E. Litz, Andrew Ramsay, Moshe Gordon, Alexander Mileant, Zachary R. Cohen, James A. Williams, Kelly K. Lee, Gary P. Drobny, Sarah L. Keller
2019 “Prebiotic amino acids bind to and stabilize prebiotic fatty acid membranes” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Aug 2019, 201900275;
DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1900275116

Was that it seems to be a repeat of;

Moshe Gordon, Roy A. Black, Matthew C. Blosser, Sarah L. Keller
2015 "Amino Acids and Peptides Stabilize Fatty Acid Membranes against Salt-Induced Flocculation" Biophysical Journal Volume 108, Issue 2, Supplement 1, 27 January 2015, Page 542a
DOI: https://doi.org/10.1016....11.2972

There was a bit about phospholipid bilayers I might need to review. Maybe that was new.

The human shit stain Sal Cordova is now making a concerted effort to talk about himself over at Peaceful Science.  It's the same lies and bullshit he's been spreading for a decade but people aren't allowed to call him on it because that wouldn't be "peaceful".  Sal is taking full advantage of his new found freedom to lie and push his YEC stupidity.  I'm pretty much fed up with PS for allowing blatant liars like Sal a platform to preach as long as they lie politely.

I tried twice to deal with Swamidass as a "moderator."

He is a flagrant creationist supporter. Regarding the posts I made exposing the lies and slanders by James Tour, Swamidass hacked threads to help cover for his "good friend" James Tour.

I did a search, and Sal has been scamming and spamming on Peaceful Science for months and months.

Sal has been posting there sporadically but in the last week started a few threads and posted many many times.  Supposedly he's trying to develop a "YEC/ID college level course" and like always is using the scientific rebuttals to his arguments to make up plausible sounding lies.  It's the same shit he's been doing for a decade.   Of course when that was pointed out the pro-science posts got censored.

an atheist podcast I listen to was talking about a guy named a Doctor Todd Wood the other day and I couldn't recall ever hearing about this guy so I looked him up, this is interesting from his blog:

The truth about evolution
September 30, 2009
I hope this doesn't turn into a rant, but it might. You have been warned.

Evolution is not a theory in crisis. It is not teetering on the verge of collapse. It has not failed as a scientific explanation. There is evidence for evolution, gobs and gobs of it. It is not just speculation or a faith choice or an assumption or a religion. It is a productive framework for lots of biological research, and it has amazing explanatory power. There is no conspiracy to hide the truth about the failure of evolution. There has really been no failure of evolution as a scientific theory. It works, and it works well.

I say these things not because I'm crazy or because I've "converted" to evolution. I say these things because they are true. I'm motivated this morning by reading yet another clueless, well-meaning person pompously declaring that evolution is a failure. People who say that are either unacquainted with the inner workings of science or unacquainted with the evidence for evolution. (Technically, they could also be deluded or lying, but that seems rather uncharitable to say. Oops.)

Creationist students, listen to me very carefully: There is evidence for evolution, and evolution is an extremely successful scientific theory. That doesn't make it ultimately true, and it doesn't mean that there could not possibly be viable alternatives. It is my own faith choice to reject evolution, because I believe the Bible reveals true information about the history of the earth that is fundamentally incompatible with evolution. I am motivated to understand God's creation from what I believe to be a biblical, creationist perspective. Evolution itself is not flawed or without evidence. Please don't be duped into thinking that somehow evolution itself is a failure. Please don't idolize your own ability to reason. Faith is enough. If God said it, that should settle it. Maybe that's not enough for your scoffing professor or your non-Christian friends, but it should be enough for you.

I think that's all I want to say today. Rant over.

The good thing about the non-ID creationists is that they tend to be liars less often.

According to self-identified “pro-life” advocates, the fundamental divide between those who want to outlaw abortion and those who want to keep it legal comes down to one question: when does life begin? Anti-abortion advocacy pushes the view that life begins at conception; the name of their movement carefully centers the conceit that opposition to abortion rights is simply about wanting to save human lives.

A new poll shows that’s a lie. The “pro-life” movement is fundamentally about misogyny.

A Supermajority/PerryUndem survey released this week divides respondents by their position on abortion, and then tracks their answers to 10 questions on gender equality more generally. On every question, anti-abortion voters were significantly more hostile to gender equity than pro-choice voters.

The ID loons are tired and boring. I just saw this idiot post on a political blog I hang out on. He might be more entertaining than them.

The time is coming to blow the Jesuits and their church right out of the water with what, ironically both science and religion thought was impossible: A literal PROOF of God for faith. And this is what I’m testing for myself at the moment.

The first wholly new interpretation for two thousand years of the Gospel and moral teaching of Christ has been published. Radically different from anything else we known from history or tradition. Redefining all primary elements including the very nature of Faith, the Word, Law, Baptism, the Trinity, the Holy Spirit and especially the Resurrection, this new moral teaching is predicated upon the ‘promise’ of a precise, predefined, predictable and repeatable experience of transcendent omnipotence and called ‘the first Resurrection’ in the sense that the Resurrection of Jesus was intended to demonstrate Gods’ willingness to reveal Himself and intervene directly into the natural world for those obedient to His Command, paving the way for access, by faith, to the power of divine Will and ultimate proof!

Thus ‘faith’ becomes an act of trust in action, the search along a defined path of strict self discipline, [a test of the human heart] to discover His ‘Word’ of a direct individual intervention into the natural world by omnipotent power that confirms divine will, law, command and covenant, which at the same time, realigns our mortal moral compass with the Divine, “correcting human nature by a change in natural law, altering biology, consciousness and human ethical perception beyond all natural evolutionary boundaries.” Thus is a man ‘created’ in the image and likeness of his Creator.

So like it or no, a new religious teaching, a moral wisdom not of human intellectual origin, transcending subjectivity, wholly testable by faith, meeting all Enlightenment criteria of direct, evidence based causation and definitive proof now exists, and carries all the implications that suggests. Nothing short of an intellectual, moral, spiritual and religious revolution is getting under way. To test or not to test, that is the question? More info at energon.org

Hmmm… the list of speakers includes our own Dr. Dr. Bill Dembski, Dr. Robert J. Marks, and Peter "I want to use the blood of the underclass to preserve and sustain my life" Thiel. And this thing is "presented by" the Discovery Institute. "Early adopters" can get in for the low, low price of $1,450; "Laggards", however, must pay $1,950.

Wow! Such a bargain…

Possibly "taste" rather than "flavour". Potassium fluoride apparently has a "sharp, saline taste".

So perhaps, it would be more appropriate to consider "salted nuts".

There is a ready supply of the ingredients at UD.
