Keynote Speech at Biology Conference Falsifies Major Claim of Darwinism
July 19, 2018
by Sal Cordova
Hailed as the greatest biologist since Darwin, Ronald Fisher is credited as author of biologys central theorem what is known as Fishers Fundamental Theorem of Natural Selection.[i] An informally stated corollary of Fishers theorem is that a population will continually increase in fitness.
However, for decades it has been noted that many populations are declining in fitness. Geneticists such as Michael Lynch[ii], Alexey Kondrashov[iii], Bryan Sykes[iv], and many others have been warning the human genome is crumbling and the damage is likely irreversible. Thus, Fishers Corollary could not be right because it did not agree with observable facts.

In the present day evolutionary biologists have been insanely angry at the NIH,
particularly the Billion Dollar ENCODE-pioneered set of projects which argues against the idea of junk DNA.
Evolutionary biologist Dan Graur said ENCODE is bonkers[v]
because If ENCODE is right, evolution is wrong.[vi]
Theorems require proof. And the proofs require tracebility to axioms which you can just pull out of your a$$ if you want. So whether your "theorem" has any useful meaning in the real world depends on which axioms you offer. Choose the right axioms and you can prove any "theorem" you want.
The current paper seems to identify decay occurring over time which would be in keeping with the Third Law of Thermodynamics.
My standard thinking about Evolution is that scientists don't know nearly as much about this stuff as they think they do. I lot of it is guesswork, conjecture and hope rather than science.
So are we to trust actual studies based on observable samples (encode) or theories about what fossils mean?
These people prefer guesswork over science.
“An informally stated corollary of Fishers theorem is that a population will continually increase in fitness.”
That’s just silly. Beyond some point, “fitness” would no longer give additional reproductive advantage. Also, the factors defining “fitness” can change or vanish from one generation to the next, or even between generations.
Overall society’s fitness is declining.
1) we are subsidizing the production of viscous and/or stupid people, people at around a Standard Deviation from the normal IQ;
2) they are collected in the low end of the socioeconomic system wherein they replicate. On the whole the parent’s IQ
is a reliable predictor of the child’s IQ.
3) the vast majority of welfare goes to the lowest percentiles of the population where it apparently does more harm than good. See destruction of the Black family as an example.
3) “The Bell Curve” lays out the whole problem which the social scientists pretend does not exist and shows the evidence which says it does There is a hierarchy of Intelligence: Jews, East Asian, American whites, Blacks with the average Black being about 30% less intelligent than the average Jew.
4) the book shows how and why a cognitive elite is being created separated from the low IQ population. It too replicates itself but there too small numbers of births to pass the trait so the average is brought down.
“have been warning the human genome is crumbling and the damage is likely irreversible”
Makes me wonder if drug use before and during inception, maternity, childhood and adolescence have anything to do with that.
Primitive societies appear to be doing well.
Researchers are finding functions for DNA segments that had been defined as “junk”all the time!!!!
That happens so often that it no longer is considered “news” in journals such as Nature, Science, Cell, etc. Some of the specific functions and pathways are news, however!!!!
Graur is all wet! And researchers do not understand the basic mechanisms of evolution, as they thought they did some 30 years ago!!
Take physical education out of the schools, heck, dont even let the kids run and play because the might get overstimulated or something. Then, give them an iPhone to sit and stare at when they arent sitting there staring at a video game. Loss of fitness? What the Hell did you expect? Liberalism is a mental disease.
Fitness is declining?? But we can easily live past 35.
Genomes and gymnasiums are two different things.
Open system or closed system makes a diff
Genomes and gymnasiums are two different things.
To be fair, he may not have named this after himself. It is not uncommon for a researcher to state a theorem, create a measure or methodology, etc. that subsequent researchers begin referring to as "so and so's theorem" until it becomes the commonly accepted name.
I’m so surprised......
Charles Darwins Theory of Evolution (often referred to as The Theory of Survival of the Fittest) describes the positive effects resulting from any pressure on an animal species that removes the least fit among the species and allows only the most fit of the species to reproduce. Many of us are well aware of this Survival of the Fittest theory, but few are aware that Darwin also makes mention of the negative effects resulting from unlimited reproduction of a species least fit when the weak, the lazy, and the stupid are left unchecked.
We like to think otherwise, but our species, Homo sapiens-sapiens, isnt that long out of the trees and the same laws of nature that affect all of Gods creatures apply equally to us. If we were to observe any other species that had been allowed to reproduce without limitations, we would know immediately what the consequences will be.
Whenever the weak; lazy; and stupid of a species are allowed to reproduce unimpeded by predators that feed off the weak; lazy; and stupid, they soon outnumber the strong, productive, and intelligent. When the weak/lazy/stupid dominate the gene pool, the entire population becomes weak/ lazy/stupid, and then the population collapses.
In the past, when these collapses occurred within human populations, they have been referred to as a Malthusian Collapse. Thomas Malthus, a Nineteenth Century Economist, thought these collapses were caused simply because past civilizations had reached a point where human populations could no longer produce sufficient food supplies to feed themselves, but he never pinned down the exact reason for the food shortages.
I now think some of these collapses of past human civilizations may have occurred when the unproductive weak/lazy/stupid greatly outnumbered the strong/productive/intelligent of the population. In other words, the majority of the population became too lazy to perform the work necessary to provide for themselves and what was left of the strong/productive/intelligent refused to continue to do it for them.
These collapses have occurred at frequent intervals throughout human history, and Western Civilization is, in my humble opinion, currently on the cusp of one of these collapses.
p>Entropy increases, and it will get you every time. Disorder always increases unless efforts are made to overcome it, which requires expenditure of energy.
Human Genome is declining. One factor that has not yet been mentioned is that...long ago the weak genome person would die before being able to reproduce. Then, along came modern medicine with vaccines, dentistry, antibiotics, and surgery for a host of problems. Thus people with weak genomes are living long enough to reproduce and their weak genomes are going into the future gene pools. Science fiction movies are constantly trying to create super humans who can resist disease and have stronger athletic abilities. And of course to have better IQs as well. There are now a days many gene splicing companies that are trying to cure genetic disorders. 200 years into the future modern medicine may need gene splicing just to keep the human race alive.
I believe that where an infinite energy source exists, like the Sun, this results in a decrease in entropy, and an ever increasing order would result. The Sun creates Evolutuon.
