Darwin was right – up to a point
September 30, 2009 – 11:52AM

Evolution had to lead to humans – or something like us – because it is very much more constrained than many scientists suggest, according to evolutionary biologist Simon Conway Morris.

In a view considered almost heretical by ultra-Darwinists such as Richard Dawkins, Conway Morris suggests that evolution cannot explain everything in biology, that the idea of evolution as entirely random is flawed, and that convergent evolutionary processes had to produce intelligence – as they have, not only in humans but apes, crows and dolphins.

“Evolution is true, it happens, it is the way the world is, and we too are one of its products. This does not mean that evolution does not have metaphysical implications; I remain convinced that this is the case,” he has written.

    Science Blindness To Gene’s Lifehood

    A. From “Better sensing through empty receptors”

    http://www.sciencenews.org/view/generic/id/47817/title/Better_sensing_through_empty_receptors

    A new model suggests cells may be more sensitive to their environment than previously thought.

    This work deals with the mechanism and efficiency of some components of the sensing system on a monocell organism’s outer membrane. It refers to

    – cells may benefit…
    – how a cell sorts information…
    – single-celled organisms, such as bacteria and yeast, must accurately judge their landscape to find food and avoid trouble.

    B. From “Bacterium With Chemoreceptors Versus Multicelled Organisms”

    http://www.the-scientist.com/community/posts/list/200/122.page#3489

    From sensing to signalling to tumbling to re-swimming. This goes on in a bacterial cell. Who and how assesses the information and draws and issues instructions?

    C. 21st Century Science Is Still Blind To Gene’s Lifehood

    This blindness is one of the hallmarks of the scientifically decadent corrupt still ongoing 20th century technology culture.

    D. Cells are just the functional housings of the organisms genes-genome

    Nature evolved genes to constrain energy as long as possible and to replicate for augmenting the amount of constrained energy.

    Genes evolved the capability and technique first to adapt and later to manipulate their environments by means of their expressions. Their expressions handle everything for the genes, from sensing to remembering to signaling through foraging through all components of surviving. Each and all of their expressions are targeted for augmented constrained energy survival.

    Is this so difficult to notice and accept scientifically?

    It seems that mundane scientific decadence blinds 21st century science to the lifehood of genes.
