From The Exciting To The Bizzare In Scientific Research

Adult stem cell research which is often times overlooked by liberals in favor of  embryonic stem cells has been one of the more exciting things to write about in the world of science.  Science Daily just recently reported that there has been an enormous jump in progress in producing better stem cells.

“The new technique, which uses three small drug-like chemicals, is 200 times more efficient and twice as fast as conventional methods for transforming adult human cells into stem cells (in this case called “induced pluripotent stem cells” or “iPS cells”).”

“Both in terms of speed and efficiency, we achieved major improvements over conventional conditions,” said Scripps Research Associate Professor Sheng Ding, Ph.D., who led the study. “This is the first example in human cells of how reprogramming speed can be accelerated. I believe that the field will quickly adopt this method, accelerating iPS cell research significantly.”

Ida, a fossil that I reported on in here before has been verified once again as not being a so-called; ‘missing link’ as hyped up by the media back in May 2009…In the BBC news outlet it states…

“The research is the first independent assessment of the claims made in a scientific paper and a television documentary earlier this year. Dr Erik Seiffert says that Ida belonged to a group more closely linked to lemurs than to monkeys, apes or us.”

Parallel Universes: Science Fiction or Theoretical Possibility?

Two scientists now claim that can actually calculate an estimate of other universes. I kid you not, this is not the twilight zone or sliders! What Hollywood has been using for years for entertainment purposes is now taken seriously by some scientists…Here is the story on how they arrived at such a strange conclusion reported by Physorg

“To work these numbers out, Linde and Vanchurin looked back to the time shortly after the Big Bang, which they view as a quantum process that generated lots of quantum fluctuations. Then during the period of inflation, the universe grew rapidly and these quantum fluctuations were “frozen” into classical perturbations in distinct regions. Today, each of these regions could be a different universe, having its own distinct laws of low energy physics.”

Scientific research without the storytelling (evolution) has always been praised in here. There is nothing anti-biblical or anti-religion for research that enhances the quality of life whether in be in the field of electronics or biomimetics, biochemistry, biophysics, systems biology and genetics when it’s presuppose information and creationism!

  1. Michael’s mask: “Adult stem cell research which is often times overlooked by liberals in favor of embryonic stem cells has been one of the more exciting things to write about in the world of science.”

    Why do youtr think that research which is overlooked is more exciting than other research? Just because creationists overlook so much research?

    Oh, wait. maybe you left out two commas that change the meaning a lot. Then let’s taslk about stem cell research. Everyone thinks it’s great not to have to use embryonic cells if there is a better way. But we would not have even known there were any such things as adult stem cells if we had not investigated embryonic cells first. we still need them for comparison, to determine whether or not we are getting any closer to the goal.

    Also, we don’t see Michael or his ilk doing any research whatsoever in stem cells of any kind, do we? We don’t see them doing any research in any field of biology, do we? Michael, please name the four genes that can reprogram an adult cell to function as a stem cell. I really didn’t think you could….

    What a pious fraud.

  2. Michael’s Halloween costume: “Ida, a fossil that I reported on in here before has been verified once again as not being a so-called; ‘missing link’ as hyped up by the media back in May 2009…”

    Sorry, Michael. Everyone but you and Science Daily already knew that. But that’s what you get by crediting secondary and tertiary sources for all of your information.

    I hope you don’t make decisions on really important issues on the basis of Science Daily, National Enquirer, or Creation Yesterday. (What was your horoscope for today, by the way? Do you believe it?)

  3. Michael’s puppeteer: “Scientific research without the storytelling (evolution) has always been praised in here.”

    You surprise again, Michael. Do you really believe that research without storytelling is evolution? Or did you slip in another of your grammatical errors to confuse your followers?

    Michael’s umma: “There is nothing anti-biblical or anti-religion for research that enhances the quality of life whether in be in the field of electronics or biomimetics, biochemistry, biophysics, systems biology and genetics when it’s [sic] presuppose [sic] information and creationism!.”

    Of course not. But then it wouldn’t be science, would it? It would be apologetics—the art of defending an a priori faith against attackers. Sorry, Michael, science doesn’t work that way.

    By the way, are creationism and information the same thing, or did your source just throw in a random intelligent-design buzzword from Column B?

    I suspect the latter. If not, please give the scientific definition of “information.” Your turn…..

  4. What a random gaggle of disparate articles today! Running short of material?

    Hard to believe. For instance, you completely missed the paper on the evolution oi the mammalian ear. According to these deluded evolutionary researchers, the mammalian ear evolve and de-evolved multiple times in the phylogenetic tree. And they claim actual observations (remember those?) to support this risible conclusion! A 24-carat prize for creationists, n’est-ce pas? How could you miss it?

    But you’ll have to look up the reference yourself. I’m finished helping you out here.

  5. Again and again and again you make fun out of research you do not even understand the basics of: in this case inflation. It is not at all that strange if you would dig into it a little deeper instead of having your pre-conceived notions of science make you write such nonsense.

  6. “Two scientists now claim that can actually calculate an estimate of other universes.”

    If you’d read a little farther, you would have seen that NONE of those possible universes is 6,000 years old or was created in six days.

    UpDn

  7. Michael’s spook: “There is nothing anti-biblical or anti-religion for research that enhances the quality of life whether in be in the field of electronics or biomimetics, biochemistry, biophysics, systems biology and genetics when it’s [sic] presuppose [sic] information and creationism!.”

    So you’re not against research as long as it enhances quality of life. Wow. That’s almost as dumb as Congress allocating funds for research, but only to find a cure for cancer.

    In case you hadn’t noticed, we can rarely tell ahead of time what the results of any research effort will be. Penecillin was discovered while trying to prevent mold in bread.

    As Einstein one remarked, “If we knew what it was that we are doing, it wouldn’t be called research, would it?”

  8. Six days on the same tired old material. Must be a dry spell for creationists. Fifty journal articles per week on evolution research, and apparently not one that can even be distorted to create a problem for evolution or to be “consistent with” special creation.

    How about that recent paper on how the deluded evilutionists say that the mammalian jaw evolved and de-evolved back and forth multiple times. You’ll have to look up the citation yourself. I’m done helping you out.
