Enemies of science (2)

“…unless all the structures (genes and enzymes and tissues) involved in the physiological reaction are identical, neither the structures responsible for physiological reactions between rats and humans nor the physiological reactions themselves between rats and humans, should be considered homologous” — Jay Feierman M.D., Ph.D.
The view expressed above is typical of that expressed by enemies of science who believe “Random mutations are the substrate upon which directional natural selection acts” is a correct and true statement.” No evidence supports that belief, and none is offered. Feierman states only that “I am absolutely certain that if you showed this statement to any professor of biology or genetics in any accredited university anywhere in the world that 100% of them would say….” He indicates that scientific facts are established by counting votes. If others are equally uninformed, they would probably agree with Feierman. Those who are informed might look away and laugh, but the problem with such misrepresentations is obviously that they are being taught to students who may never learn that Physiology is rocking the foundations of evolutionary biology.
Thus, despite the scientific facts (from the current president of the International Union of Physiological Sciences), we continue to have ridiculous unsupported claims from enemies of science like Jay Feierman who want others to believe that “Random mutations are the substrate upon which directional natural selection acts” and to ignore the scientific fact that adaptive evolution is nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled.
