What slows the progression of the sciences to prove Evolution?
« Reply #25 on: 27/07/2008 22:29:29 »
The current model is flawed because there are many examples of weaker species thriving while stronger species fail to thrive and become extinct. Darwin undoubtedly had part of it correct but failed to recognise the significance of bipedalism. I believe the driving force behind evolution is gravity always will be and always has been. Did standing up alter the order of signals in our brain and increase intelligence?

Did gravity play a part in the Elephant and Bull seal Tusk? The huge wings of a bat developed because it slept suspended upside down? Compared to its tiny back legs?

The canines of a lion are they stronger because of gravity and how it drives the pattern of larger teeth from their mineral rich diet?

Is it gravity that drives the ocean currents and alters the world’s weather to bring about past extinctions?

Does gravity provide oxygen and fuel to generate fire and enable us to cook food?

Is it a coincidence that humans stand vertical and are the most intelligent species?

Does an ape have a different flow of fluids through its brain to humans and is there evidence in the skulls of primates that show different flow direction to that of our own skull?

Does the increased flow of blood in more upright species generate sufficient friction due to improved flow caused by gravity make these species warm blooded?

Do cold blooded animals evolve closer to horizontal than warm blooded animals?

Does a dormouse emerging from hibernation use posture to alter its temperature and awaken by uncurling, stretching, turning onto its side, and then sitting and eventually standing and does this correspond to the changes in body temperature as it goes through this process?

Does an increase in salt in the diet of humans alter the sex of a baby towards male and does a reptile have a temperature dependence towards producing different sexes?

And does a dinosaur have the same temperature dependence and if so does this tell us something important about their extinctions? Could the global warming of 2 degrees have caused an all male population in dinosaurs whereas the egg laying dinosaurs that used water to regulate their offspring’s sex dependence to produce an equal female to male ratio explaining why today’s dinosaurs like crocodiles, alligators, turtles, tortoise are still with us while the big dinosaurs laying their eggs away from water perished.

And bacterial evolution? Viral?

You are quite right, of course, gravity will have had an impact on evolution, being an environmental condition under which evolution occurs.  However, the force of gravity is basically the same on all animals, and so other environmental conditions will trump gravity with regards natural selection.

  Darwin did not even use the word evolution in his whole book Origins of Species.

Bipedalism evolved or basically the change was found good, because to stand, freed the hands to carry. So that first freak was probably capable of carrying an offspring during a pursuit, and they survived.

Or if what you are suggesting "brain waves"  would be as if you understood the earth's magnetic field and raised a coil above the earths surface to increase flux line exposure to increase the potential.....

bet not many realize that is what Tesla's tower was.

It was not for 'transmitting' energy but as a generator of 'free energy'........ 

this is something that that can be proven as well will expose why Edison was one of the most corrupt businessmen this earth ever knew

knowledge evolves correct?

My apologies.  When you said:
Quote
because if the math was correct in the first place than evolution would be a historical document just like the bible is
I thought you were saying that the bible was a historically accurate document, hence thinking you were a creationist spouting nonsense.
  Well with a birth of june 1966 or simply 6/66... be certain nothing of ignorance within a faith over truth will ever come from this person....

ask the serpant in the garden; he told Eve, surely they would not die and know 'good and evil'.........  because the truth does not lie; people do

Quote
The fact remains though, that the maths of several aspects of evolution are well understood.  Also, it is not the scientific community that determines what is taught in schools, and I stand by my comment that the schools which decide not to teach evolution do so for reasons other than the science itself.
  If the math of how electricity and electromagnetism or even light, was pure, then evolution could never be in doubt.

such that the true framework of math, reveals that evolution is a product of nature, rather than a belief

such is when we see some dude flying through the clouds rapturing people as well bones regrow bodies and sharon tate walks around again, then we could believe the bible as true

Quote
Also, it is possible to understand a great deal of the sciences (especially at high school level) without even touching the maths behind it, so I hardly see the relevence.
  because most are simply resolved to existing paradigm

that is because of choice, not reality as to be of choice and not be complacent, then each can see the truth simply by being honest with themselves to not allow beliefs to overtake integrity

meaning, if someone says the earth revolves around the sun, all it takes is to observe what is occuring and make quality determinations based on simply being honest with what you see and not believing just because it sounds good.

Thank you copernicus and then gallileo for being honest and doing what is right as a contribution to mankind!

Thank you for not giving a whoot about what people think of you and doing what was neccessary to give us, your future, a chance to see what is true over and above the monkeys, unevolved, but retaining faith.

Keep this in mind;   all words are the creation of mankind

Indeed bacterial and viral evolution is propelled by gravity.

Your saying the force of gravity is equal on all creatures, plants and microbes is of course correct. However when this equal force is applied to density changes in fluids it gives us a whole new ball game to play with. For example suspended solutes in blood in a horizontally formed reptile causes fluids to slow down. And indeed these reptiles use postural changes to warm up and cool down. We also can show this in human physiology by laying flat, standing up sitting down and sleeping head down or head up at an angle. Solutes in a horizontal artery for example will have gravity forcing them towards the side of the artery closest to ground. Whereas a head up tilt will cause the solutes to be propelled along the artery inducing an accelerated flow.

Professor Michel Cabanac, University Laval as I have stated before has identified a very important flow independent of the brain by placing a Doppler probe where the eye meets the nose during rest and exercise using a static cycle machine. A Doppler probe records a reversal of the blood flow against the normal direction produced by the heart. This means blood flows normally from brain to skin through the holes in the skull and reverses when the body becomes overheated. Dean Falk published a paper titled selective cooling of the brain. Cabanac has asked me to write a paper in defence of his own paper on this important discovery.

So although we have equal exposure to gravity some animals have evolved to make more use of its beneficial driving force upon circulation and in doing so have reaped many other benefits from it.

A monkey has perfect dexterity in hands feet and tail and is quite capable of carrying its offspring to safety perhaps even more capable than us given its impressive agility in the canopy of trees.. So this one is probably not important in the greater picture

increased associations between bodies of mass, increases its potential (see Casimir or even how dark matter was conjured)

you suggested that gravity was how bipedal evolution occured; i suggested no it is not and that freeing the hands for carrying was the benefit procured.

Haven't you ever notices human babies cannot hold on, they must be carried?

Human babies demonstrate the holding on mechanism to great effect when newborn and for some time after birth.

Gravity variations on the Earth affect all of the animals in the area to the same degree and if animals were moved from one part to another then they would be affected the same. It is pointless to split hairs over this.

All evolution is gravity dependent and bugs are no exception to this force. Take the cells into micro-gravity and we see a very different evolution.

THE ABILITY TO ADAPT TO ADVERSE ENVIRONMENTS IS extremely important to pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli. One entirely unique environment is the microgravity experienced by bacteria during space flight. A large body of whole organism-based research has demonstrated that prolonged exposure to microgravity has significant effects at a basic, cellular level.1 The analysis of bacteria under microgravity has received considerably less attention because of the expense and difficulty of performing in-flight experiments onboard the shuttle or space station. In order to overcome this limitation, investigators have taken advantage of the partial simulation of microgravity obtained by growing bacterial cultures in High Aspect Rotating Vessels (HARV) developed by NASA.2 For example, a recent study3 showed that, Salmonella enterica serovar typhimurium grown under low-shear modeled microgravity (LSMMG) appeared to have increased virulence potential in a murine model system. A follow-up study4 revealed that a significant number of the genes are transcriptionally regulated in response to LSMMG. In addition to immediate changes in behavior, it is also possible that bacterial strains will evolve during long-term space flight, potentially modifying virulence, resistances, and rate of culture survival.Our goal is to develop a more general and deeper understanding of LSMMG on bacterial gene expression. http://www.isso.uh.edu/publications/A2002/fox1.htm



The team looked at the entire Salmonella genome and found that the expression of 167 genes and the levels of 73 proteins had changed in the space-travellers. Clearly, the environmental changes of space-flight had triggered changes in the bacteria at the molecular level.
When fed to mice, the altered bacteria were three times more virulent than their Earth-bound counterparts. The infected mice succumbed to much lower concentrations of space-faring bacteria and in much shorter times.

No they can't.....  as the suggestion was, that bipedal progressed because it freed the hands to carry with...

you suggested it was gravity and in a sense i guess it was; to over come it

then you should have an answer for why dinosaurs were so big.

I suggest because the oxygen content of the atmosphere was greater.   Roughly 32-35% back then, and now 21-23%.

Just because we can change something in the lab (space) does not mean, nature is following that protocol.

the thread is suggesting that if the math to evolution was correct, in which from atom and energy to adam and eve... if the core rules of the interactive process of mass and energy was correct, then nothing could stop evolution from being understood globally

i.e... it would be a known fact of nature!

We need zero understanding of maths to understand evolution.  So even if the incredibly complex maths (which isn't widely understood) was wrong, it wouldn't make any difference.

I think you've picked an obscure reason to claim evolution isn't really what's happening.  Please can you explain to me your understanding of evolution as it stands?

Bishadi sorry to rain on your parade but this video may go someway to revealing the truth, and the truth in science is realy all that matters.


Incidentally not all dinosaurs were so big! so we have to have an understanding of why there was so much diversity. For example why is a dormouse so small when an elephant is so big? It is likely that there was a huge abundance of food for both grazing and meat eating animals. Rich pickings might have had something to do with huge bellies?

I have to agree with Ben. If the logic is not obvious then adding more complications to make the picture less obvious is hardly the right way to be going. Keep it simple has stood the test of time. Besides can't imagine getting dinosaurs to digest complicated maths.

   but if the math of how energy and mass was correct and uncomplicated, then evolution would be simply a part of math

  i disagree...

as it is if the performance of the simple phospholipid bilayers was understood, then 'creation from inanimate matter' would not still be believed

way off the mark on what is being suggested. me may thump into about every religion you can get your hands on; but none are of the last chapter; understanding.  Such that once 'understanding' begins in each of the 4 corners of this world, the religions will become simply history lessons.

life progresses within an evironment

such that living things evolved

knowledge as well has evolved

such that life became aware (conscious)

the pinnacle of knowledge is when mass knows how it exists

Bishadi sorry to rain on your parade but this video may go someway to revealing the truth, and the truth in science is realy all that matters.
  in a sense you are pretty much on the money; difference is, some are scientific in nature and some are controlled by the science or the business of.

i.e....  no tenure is granted without conformity as well, not many (true scientists) can survive without being within the business of the science (someone usually owns the work)

sorry to rain on your parade, but bell labs, mit and cal tech combined can't mess with what i bring; because they don't know it as well don't own it

so have a little religion coupled with reality (science)

that script such like Einstein's E=mc2 style, that combines the three core portions to existence itself (all mass, energy and all time) 'Get MET' works in a form, that is corporeal, spirit and transcendent; the trinity; in a script form is that long sought name of God.   God is not some dude sitting on a thrown, God is what we live within; Existence itself!

so you have my religious view


Quote
I have to agree with Ben. If the logic is not obvious
  the logic is obvious but when predeterminations are learned, then the stubborn simply shut off listening

i.e...  almost like a bible thumper

Quote
then adding more complications to make the picture less obvious is hardly the right way to be going.
  What is so difficult with removing all the stupidity of particle accelerators (created units of mass), dark matter, dark energy (does not exist; observance of increased entanglement between the stars in close proximity) and half of the garbage in current sciences (chemistry is a joke; no observance to the energy upon the mass).............what is wrong with combining all branches of the sciences within a single form that reduces the garbage rather than continues the stupid tangents and confuses the comprehension to even professors?

i.e...  Ptolemy had the math to represent the absolute law of the earth as the center of the universe by mathematically defining how the 'roaming bodies' (planets) crisscrossed the sky......

but then copernicus, another rude polock, used common sense and honest observance to begin another "paradigm shift"

Quote
Keep it simple has stood the test of time. 
  and throughout time they all said 'light is life'

so i did the homework and found; they're were correct.  Energy is light upon mass, and energy upon mass does share a progression within a good environment to assimilate more mass (evolve) and increase its total potential (life)...


Quote
Besides can't imagine getting dinosaurs to digest complicated maths.
  that is what i consider the old timers of the sciences

dinosaurs!

it is why the children are my target; i need not be accepted by the community

to give the children enough, they can run with it and not be complacent to foolishness of current thought;

then as the old books suggested that when the truth exists; "the young will begin to teach the old'..........

so if a single person had the knowledge to combine the sciences, religions and philosophies of this earth; who do you think it must be

and like i suggest to the christian gang; there are no 2 people coming in the end times scenario; it's all from the same ONE

no magic, not flying dragons eating seals...... its all about simply understanding what life is and how we can choice our eternity by what we do

and then have the math to back it up

don't joke about reality; because if 'ye lyin, ye dyin'

so i don't play when it comes to knowledge

Okay then, don't play games with knowledge.

Please can you tell me a bit more about your understanding of evolution, as:

Quote
life progresses within an evironment

such that living things evolved

knowledge as well has evolved

Doesn't explain to me how much you understand.

Also, here's a challenge for you.  As you keep stating that the maths is wrong, you must know what the correct maths is.  Please explain to me the maths behind evolution.  Should I not be able to follow it, then a school child would also be unable to do so, (and so would not learn it) and your point will be completely null and void.

I am happy to explain evolution (without the maths) at a level that a school child would be able to understand and then use as a base on which to develop an understanding of the more complex issues, should you wish me to. However as the originator of this thread, I feel it is your responsibility to first explain yourself.
