…he invited people to read “Might Is Right,” an 1890 book advocating for Social Darwinism and claiming that Anglo-Saxons are a “superior race.”

A copy is on display at the Scopes Museum in Dayton, TN, and it’s opened to pages 195-196:
Evolution of Man. – Undoubtedly there once lived upon the earth races of men who were much lower in their mental organization than the present inhabitants. If we follow the early history of man upon the earth, we find that at first he must have been little better than one of the lower animals. He was a nomad, wandering from place to place, feeding upon whatever living things he could kill with his hands. Gradually he must have learned to use weapons, and thus kill his prey, first using rough stone implements for this purpose. As man became more civilized, implements of bronze and of iron were used. About this time the subjugation and domestication of animals began to take place. Man then began to cultivate the fields, and to have a fixed place of abode other than a cave. The beginnings of civilization were long ago, but even to-day the earth is not entirely civilized.
The claims were linked to the teaching of neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense about mutation-driven evolution and to Hitler’s eugenics.
The California festival shooter was probably influenced by his public school teachers and his public school educated peers. Parents in the USA typically do not teach their children to become terrorists who kill children. But anyone who is taught to believe in mutation-driven evolution might give up hope for a better future and say “What the Hell?”
Teachers in the USA do not teach students that there is a model of behavioral development that explains top-down causation via God’s Creation of sunlight and the effects of odors and pheromones on hormones that affect behavior. It’s complicated, which means and it’s not nearly as easy as teaching a child to believe in mutation-driven evolution.
The amino acid optimality code (Fig 6) provides an alternative perspective on sequence changes between paralogs in evolution and human disease.
Paralogs are homologous genes that arose through gene duplication. In humans and other species, gene duplication events are food energy-dependent. They result in two copies of a gene within the same genome. Sometimes, one or both of the duplicates is altered by the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA, which causes the creation of toxic peptides in gut microbes that link mutations to all pathology.
If that’s too confusing, and you still want to believe in mutation-driven evolution see the games for ages 10+ that say the same thing: toxic peptides in gut microbes link mutations to all pathology.
We must revise the study and treatment of these diseases to account for the human microbiome.
That’s been done. See: Genome-Wide Study Reveals a Novel Regulatory Pathway: Translation Affects mRNA Stability in a Codon-Dependent Manner 6/26/19
The team measured the [virus-driven] decay of existing mRNAs by performing time-course RNA-seq; measured mRNA stability independent of untranslated regions (UTRs) using a vector-based library termed ORFome; and measured mRNA stability without blocking mRNA transcription using a method called SLAM-seq.
Three years of ignorance touted by neo-Darwinian theorists and many school teachers who teach their children to believe in ridiculous theories instead of facts about mRNAs, can be compared to my claims about the microRNA-mediated fixation of the amino acid substitution, EDAR V370A in human populations from the Old World to the New World. No mutation-driven evolution is required; only food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations and the microRNAs in mammalian milk exosomes.
Thus, the title Nutrient-dependent Pheromone-Controlled Ecological Adaptations: From Angstroms to Ecosystems 4/18/18 (link opens the pdf)
This angstroms to ecosystems model of ecological adaptation links nutrient energy-dependent epigenetic effects on base pairs and amino acid substitutions to pheromone-controlled changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance and chromosomal rearrangements via the physiology of reproduction in species from microbes to humans. The nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled changes are required for the thermodynamic regulation of intracellular signaling, which enables biophysically constrained nutrient-dependent protein folding; experiencedependent receptor-mediated behaviors, and organism-level thermoregulation in ever-changing ecological niches and social niches. Nutrient-dependent ecological, social, neurogenic and socio-cognitive niche construction are manifested in increasing organismal complexity. Species-specific pheromones link quorum-sensing in microbes from chemical ecology to the physiology of reproduction. The reciprocal relationships of species-typical nutrientdependent morphological and behavioral diversity are enabled by pheromone-controlled reproduction. Ecological variations and biophysically constrained natural selection for codon optimality links nutritional epigenetics to the behaviors that enable ecological adaptations. All biodiversity is an ecologically validated proof-of-concept. Ideas from population genetics, which exclude ecological factors, are integrated with an experimental evidence-based approach that establishes what is currently known. Simply put, olfactory/pheromonal input links food odors and social odors from the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of supercoiled DNA in the organized genomes of species from microbes to man during their development.
Also, food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled fixation of COMT Val158Met during the transition from adolescence to adulthood prevents mass murders and suicides. But I can’t teach that fact to liberal teachers or anyone else who prefers to address the problem with gun prohibition laws and compensated or uncompensated confiscation. Trying to teach people like that is like trying to teach a pig to sing “God Bless America,” or to say “Trump in 2020.”
Am I being to harsh? Did you know that non-invasive testing for the COMT Val158Met amino acid substitution has been available for more than 4 years?
Would you recommend that a young man who seemed to have trouble with his social skills be tested for a virus-caused pathological variant in case a change in diet could prevent a mass murder?
If not, wait for Trump to announce that testing will be recommended in the context of his focus on nutrition.
