Australian university suspends ancient DNA expert Alan Cooper as part of workplace investigation 8/19/19

…Nic Rawlence, now director of the paleogenetics lab at the University of Otago in New Zealand, alleges that Cooper bullied and harassed him and other trainees while Rawlence worked in Cooper’s lab from 2006 to 2013.

Coordinated coverage of anthropology, archaeology and paleontology shows that ancient DNA is no older than 5-10K years. Alan Cooper may not want anyone to reveal that fact.

The findings confirm their earlier work suggesting that the majority of variants, including potentially harmful ones, were picked up during the past 5,000–10,000 years.

That fact was placed into the context of the light-activated creation of olfactory receptor genes via the assembly of the microRNA-RNA-peptide nanocomplex and microRNAs in the milk exosomes of all mammals.

Milk exosomes are bioavailable and distinct microRNA cargos have unique tissue distribution patterns 7/27/18

Exosomes and their RNA cargos do not exclusively originate from endogenous synthesis but may also be obtained from dietary sources such as the inter-species transfer of exosomes and RNAs in bovine milk to humans.

Also, fixation of one amino acid substitution in the organized genomes of mice and humans linked EDAR V370A from what human populations in the Old World ate and their physiology of reproduction to biophysical constraints on human populations in the New World.

The frequency of the human-specific EDAR V370A allele appears to be uniquely elevated in North and East Asian and New World populations due to a bout of positive selection…

Positive selection for food and pheromones has since been linked from the claims of Lewis Thomas in 1971 and in 1980, to the claims of Biblical Prophesy made by Bernard Feringa in 2018.

WHAT are we going to do if it turns out that we have pheromones? What on earth would we be doing with such things? With the richness of speech, and all our new devices for communication, why would we want to release odors into the air to convey information about anything? We can send notes, telephone, whisper cryptic invitations, announce the giving of parties, even bounce words off the moon and make them carom around the planets. Why a gas, or droplets of moisture made to be deposited on fenceposts?

“I should think we might fairly gauge the future of biological science, centuries ahead by estimating the time it will take to reach a complete comprehensive understanding of odor. It may not seem a profound enough problem to dominate all the life sciences, but it contains, piece by piece, all the mysteries” (p. 732). — as cited on page 24 in The Scent of Eros: Mysteries of Odor in Human Sexuality (1995/2002)

Disabled were walking again, the blind were seeing again, and the death rose from the grave. 2013 was the year in which prophesy from the bible became reality. — De Correspondent dec 2013


Simply put, energy as information predicts outcomes in P. fluorescens and the weekend evolution of the bacterial flagellum links the physiology of food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled reproduction across kingdoms from mate selection in sexually differentiated cell types of yeasts to human populations exemplified by the Hutterites.

…human pheromones may fulfill the biological criteria required to link at least one aspect of a sensory-based, nurturing, social environment: olfaction, to the genetic nature of human behavior through a five-step pathway common to all terrestrial mammals and to many other vertebrates.
