Re: Increase in free energy in glycolysis

Increase in free energy just refers to Gibbs free energy. That free energy comes from enthalpy (internal energy) - entropy (chaos). Also expressed as Gibbs Free Energy = Enthalpy - Entropy. The idea is that with each subsequent step of glycoysis there is more chaos and thus the ...

Re: Diffusion and concentration gradient

1) the answer of Arlen1991 is completely irrelevant to your question! 2) Darby's analogy is perfect 3) it's simply about entropy . The molecules move randomly in any direction without any knowledge of presence of other molecules (alike or different). So just by following probability ...

Or; what is the mechanism of the reproductive system's expemption from cellular 'copy imperfection'/aging - so that all parts of our bodies will replace cells with increasingly imperfect copies except those pertaining to offspring?

Re:

... (6,000 years). The fact we are having this conversation right now proves 'evolution' never happened. I did a link to Sanfords book 'Genetic entropy'. The onus of proof is on the person that makes the claim. Science has lots of evidence for evolution but there is no evidence for any deity. ...
