Random mutations: nothing adaptive in 3 billion years

This is an open access article. Any advocate of adaptive evolution via random mutations can attempt to find evidence that I could not find by scanning it.

Epistasis: Epigenetic effects of nutrient chemicals and their metabolism to pheromones

epistasis is achieved via the epigenetic effects of nutrient chemicals, which are balanced by the epigenetic effects of their metabolism to pheromones that control reproduction in species from microbes to man.

Waiting “forever” for something to happen for the “first” time

Stochastic gene expression is not random; it results from nutrient chemicals like glucose entering the cell.

Adaptive evolution or not: cone receptors in the eye vs odor receptors

Ingestive behavior and social behavior are odor receptor-mediated in all species (not just those that are sensitive to light) as would be expected due to the common molecular biology of all species.

Docosahexaenoic acid vs. creative use of mutations in natural selection

When we realize that nutrient chemicals metabolize to species-specific pheromones that control reproduction in species from microbes to man, the story line about random mutations or the effect of any mutation on adaptive evolution changes.

Epigenetic effects on the evolution of behavior

No mammal survives without the epigenetic effect of pheromones on species-specific differences in behavior, including sex differences in behavior.

Human pheromones and brain development

the epigenetic effects of chemicals from our sensory environment on GnRH are probably essential to the development of an evolved brain and behavior involved in seeking out proper nutrition and reproductively “fit” mates.
