Virologists from the Cancer Research Center in Seattle named Hutchinson (USA) stated that for the first time viruses like HIV, appeared in primates about 12 million years ago. "Having studied the history of the evolution of viruses and primates, we uncovered a previously unknown, but is very old and still ongoing genetic" conflict "between monkeys and viruses. More than 40 species of monkeys suffering from virus related to HIV. Because some of them could potentially be contagious to humans, we need to understand how they arose and developed "- leads the RIA Novosti Michael Read more [...]
The origin of life, the origin of multicellular grandmother as a means of survival, splicing as a tool of evolution and other theories and hypotheses of evolutionary theory, which attracted our attention in the past year.The modern theory of evolution is a complex fusion of different biological disciplines, from the oldest and most respected systematics of plants and animals to the latest molecular biology. Whatever may appear new in the concepts, theories and methods, evolutionary theory tries to apply it to his subject. The object of evolutionary theory is extremely difficult, because the theory Read more [...]
Scientists have found that about 2 million years ago in the Olduvai Gorge there were sharp changes periodic droughts and wet periods, which may have influenced the evolution of human ancestors. The paper was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and its summary can be read at the University of Pennsylvania.
The authors investigated the deposits that were formed in a long time in the lakes of Olduvai Gorge. Scientists have traced over how changes in sediment over time the composition of organic wax that covers the leaves of plants. According to the researchers, Read more [...]
It is easy to decide that people stopped in development, but there is nothing further from the truth. Although modern medicine and other blessings of civilization greatly facilitated the struggle for survival, making it almost invisible, evolution is still there. And over the past thousands of years, it could even accelerate.
Charles Darwin was in no hurry to declare the existence of a common ancestor of man and apes, giving the right to prepare the public for this seditious thought his followers like Thomas Huxley. Only in "The Descent of Man, and sexual selection" (1871), when the Read more [...]
Evolution gave the polar bear its white coat "instantaneously"Swedish explorer and naturalist Folmer Bokma at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in Boston, presented the report, which states that evolution is not a gradual and relatively uniform process (as suggested by the theory of neo-Darwinism), but a series of abrupt changes and transformations, so most new species can be formed almost Single-moment.Hopping theory of evolution appeared long ago. Its first expressed paleontologists who have studied the fossilized remains of ancient creatures."I have Read more [...]
Russian scientists have discovered the world's first evidence of artificial selection for a benign tumor. It is an aquarium goldfish, which are brought in China 1500 years ago. Some of them are amazingly beautiful species by red cap on his head. That it is particularly valued by collectors.What kind of education? How did they get there? For a long time it remained a mystery. But here is research professor of the St. Petersburg State University of Andrei Kozlov and MD Mark Zabezhinsky gave the answer to this question. They managed to prove that the cap - a benign tumor.
- We first described Read more [...]
Observations of high precision made in recent years have shown that the universe is composed of 75% Dark Energy, 20% - dark matter, and only 5% - this is normal baryonic matter. Galaxy, as we all visible matter concentrated in a complex network of filaments and voids, which is sometimes also called "cosmic web." Computer models show that in such a universe must be distributed throughout the formation of dwarf galaxies of about one thousandth of the mass of the Milky Way - that is, in our immediate surroundings dwarfs should be very much. However, observations show that this is not Read more [...]
South Ural scientists to forecast the development of the natural complexes of the Chelyabinsk region and came to the conclusion that it will be possible to live here under any scenario.As the correspondent of "New Region", the press service of the CSPU, geographer Vladimir Derjaguin reconstructed the evolution of the lake geosystems Southern Urals during the late-and post-glacial. Based on these findings the researcher concluded about how the nature of the region, as well as to predict how landscapes may change in the future.

As research by American scientists, the evolution of the human hand - the best proof of his ... aggression. In the discussion of human evolution, the researchers always consider changing structure of the hand, comparing the man's arm with a monkey paw. It is obvious that hands can make more subtle and complex motion than a monkey paw, used primarily to move and work with large objects.
The most important factor for the development of the human species has the ability to hand squeeze. While still in the ancient hominid thumb was opposed others, it is almost not used: long fingers were more Read more [...]

No matter how big is the global disaster, clear that the whole universe is in it will not be lost (unless the decay of a metastable vacuum, but even in this case remain parallel universes). Any intelligent life out there in it on another planet, and the more of these places, the more likely that this life will be similar to ours. In this sense, the complete global catastrophe impossible. However, if it is a global disaster befall the earth, then there are several possible options.
In accordance with the provisions of synergy, the critical point means that there is a finite number of scenarios, Read more [...]
Rather than jump straight to the discussion whether it is possible artificial intelligence, I want to put forward an extreme point of view, consists in the fact that, in a sense, the AI already exists.
The fact that no natural human intellect does not exist. Human intelligence consists of language, ideas and ways of thinking that have been invented by people. Point. We have been living in artificial intelligence. Human thinking skills continuously and rapidly evolved from the appearance of the rudiments of speech through the emergence of abstract concepts, mathematics, scientific method, and Read more [...]
In a previous article we talked about the Mayan calendar (Mayan Calendar), which is based on a horizontal Twenty sacred signs. It is these signs and imply a common source of mythical structures. The term "myth" in this case we mean the frame resonating points that come from the heart of the galaxy and pierce all galactic unity.
Frame resonating points form twenty primary symbols, rotating spiral. This spiral rotation and creates fractal staircase linking the star system, different worlds and mythology.
Key positions in the framework deals with signs fifth, tenth, fifteenth Read more [...]
In the course of evolution man making preparations to accept the nature of the various impacts the outside world, to establish regular contacts with the changing of the processes.
For thousands of years to develop appropriate biological rhythms in the activity of various functional systems of the body, and these rhythms are changed according to changes in the environment in which it is located. Based on scientific data, especially in the XX., Centuries of technological progress, it is proved that a living cell with its complex biological structures and metabolic processes, there more than 3 billion Read more [...]
Evolutionary theory - a set of ideas about the mechanisms and patterns of historical changes in the organic nature.
The evolutionary theory asserts continuity of development of the organic world. The origins of evolutionary beliefs date back to antiquity. Naturalist philosophers of ancient Greece and Rome (Democritus, Anaxagoras, Aristotle, Lucretius, and others) suggest the development and transformations of organisms, and attempts to define the dynamics of these phenomena. However, the conclusions of ancient thinkers were not based on systematic knowledge and were in the nature of guesswork.

Natural sciences and philosophies in the early XIX century, to a large extent dependent on the industrial revolution. The industrial revolution that occurred in the first place in England led to the aggravation of class contradictions of capitalism. Some humanists (Hobbes, 1588-1679; Locke, 1632-1704, Carlyle, 1795-1881) saw huge contradictions of bourgeois society, supposedly caused by selfish motives of capitalists. With other items to the exploitation of the working class came utopian socialists Saint-Simon (1760-1825), Fourier (1772-1837) and Owen (1771 - 1858).
Huge impact on the public Read more [...]
