Hi miss Jurate, thanks for freinding me. It is good to see a fellow scientist on here. There is no group better to make the non theists point valid. I spent many years in Seattle. I was involved in the start-up of two biotechnology companies there. Could not take the cool, dreary climate though and eventually moved south. UW is a very good school!! Do you work professionally in Seattle? You have an interesting name. I wonder where your origins are? Regards, John Paul
All is a bit too speculative for my taste. I don't know very much about the glands and their role and I would hesitate to put so much weight as these glands driving the whole evolution of human species.
Also, only mitochondria DNA cannot account for CNS and the immune system, it's only a part of a bigger picture.
I feel that within the mitrochondrial D>N>A lies our central nervous system and our immune system, as we know only the females pass on MD>N>A. I feel, and as far as i know this is speculative that we have a pair of glands around the coccyx that are regulators of appetite. I feel these glands to be para-thyrodic. I also feel they have much to do with the regulation of the oestrus so would, and indeed still do, regulate our evolution. When food is scarce they'd regulate us and so would have a large part to play in any evolutionary phase. To go back to the notion that our mitrachondrial gives us our central nervous system and our immune system, i feel it gives women their rightful place and i feel fully justifies my pro-femenist stance. You are the progenators of evolution.
I agree it takes a little more speculation, all I'm saying is it must have had a major influence at the time. I have a theory about para-thyrodic glans at the base of the spine and would love to speculate on that with you. With your permission.
Hello again jurate. In all this discussion over bones transition etc etc, what part would our neurology play in this. Do you think that our neuro system would habve been positive or negative. I feel that the neurology of evolution would have been a prime source if not the singular delineating fact iof our evolution. Perhaps to the point that if we ignore that and just concentrate on the bones we miss a lot of the impetus for our own intellectual growth. Our neuro system with all our perceptions and experiences, as well as the senses to percieve outward conditions, is what we are surely.
Welcome to this excellent site where atheists recognise that religion is a fraud and gods are nothing but fictions inside the heads of the credulous.
