Adaptive evolution: nutrient-driven; pheromone-controlled

January 21, 2013 | James Kohl

The friend who acquired the Pheromones.com domain for me in 1996 asked for a second six-word story after I contributed the first one.

1.      Adaptive evolution: nutrient-driven; pheromone-controlled.

2.      Mutations do not cause adaptive evolution.

These two six-word stories could eliminate past decades of “Just-So” storytelling by social scientists and evolutionary theorists who have been taught to believe – and who enjoy teaching others to believe — that all aspects of our required ecological, social, neurogenic, and socio-cognitive niche construction have resulted from random mutations. How can it not be perfectly clear that Natural Selection is for food and that Sexual Selection is for nutrient-dependent pheromone production in species from microbes to man? How can it not be clear that nutrient chemical-dependent pheromone-controlled reproduction causes adaptive evolution?

Many people ignore the basic principles of biology and levels of biological organization required to link sensory cause to behavioral affect, which is probably why they continue to believe that random mutations cause adaptive evolution. That is the most ridiculous theory I have ever encountered in the context of life on this planet, but it will not be eliminated by six-word stories or book-length diatribes.

The ridiculous theory that random mutations cause adaptive evolution can only be eliminated by repeatedly telling the two six-word stories above until the ignorant masses realize the scientific truth and begin to hold it in higher regard instead of clinging to their ridiculous theories.

James Vaughn Kohl was the first to accurately conceptualize human pheromones, and began presenting his findings to the scientific community in 1992. He continues to present to, and publish for, diverse scientific and lay audiences, while constantly monitoring the scientific presses for new information that is relevant to the development of his initial and ongoing conceptualization of human pheromones.
