Ignorance trumps evidence, again

Re: Final piece found in puzzle of brain circuitry controlling fertility (published on 9/20/13 and virtually ignored)
Excerpt: “In a landmark discovery, the final piece in the puzzle of understanding how the brain circuitry vital to normal fertility in humans and other mammals operates has been put together by researchers at New Zealand’s University of Otago.”
My comment: Nutrient-stress and social-stress that contribute to altered GnRH pulse frequency are sources of physical diseases and mental disorders in all human populations worldwide. If not for the statistical approach to population genetics based solely on ideas like those proposed by Haldane more than 80 years ago, and uncritically adopted by evolutionary theorists, we would already have cures for many more stress-related illnesses.
The refutation of mutation-driven evolution, was published in this same journal on 9/13/13 (reported here). Now, even in the light of what’s been confirmed about how GnRH pulse frequency fixes new nutrient-dependent alleles, when alleles associated with mutations are not fixed, the refutation of mutations theory in natural selection is being ignored.
It is amazing to see ignorance trump experimental evidence when results of scientific experiments are published in the same journal that should eliminate the ignorance. I think what we’ve seen in the past two weeks is that ignorance and theory will always trump evidence and biological facts.
