Genes not culture drive humans forward (an antithetical approach)
Posted on February 28, 2012 by James Kohl.
“Evolutionary biologist at the University of Reading Professor Mark Pagel argues that our cultural influences are more important to our success as a species than our genes in his new book published this week.”
Epigenetic influences of nutrition and socialization on intracellular signalling pathways link epigenetic cause directly to gene activation and stochastic gene expression. These influences are required for genetically predisposed phenotypic changes in the body and behavior of organisms from microbes to man. This biological fact makes it clear that we must first deny or ignore what is currently known about molecular biology to approach evolutionary biology from perspectives on cultural influences.
All species adapt to their social environment, as was recently demonstrated by mixing honeybees with different genotypes. The honeybee already serves as a model organism for studying human immunity, disease resistance, allergic reaction, circadian rhythms, antibiotic resistance, the development of the brain and behavior, mental health, longevity, diseases of the X chromosome,learning and and memory, as well as conditioned responses to sensory stimuli. Is colony collapse a problem of culture?
What is the likelihood that culture “...created a species with a suite of adaptations for making use of the prosperous social environment of human culture, among them are our ultra-social nature, our language, morality and even some individual differences in talents and skills.” Creation of species that leads to culture is antithetical to the cultural creation of a species. Which approach incorporates the science of molecular biology that underlies evolutionary biology?
