comment Signaling through G protein Coupled Receptors?
You can design such experiments. Do you know which receptor you're interested in? What have you learned from the literature about how GPCR signalling pathways are evaluated?

@Alan - that's true. I should clarify I was talking about humans only since that was the focus. I've edited my answer.

comment What is the difference between transformation and transfection?
Alan, it just proves how confused the two terms have become. The proper term in that case is transformation -- naked uptake of DNA, just as it would be for liposome-mediated "transfection"

comment What is the difference between transformation and transfection?
To add on with how the words are currently used, bacteria undergo transformation, while introducing plasmids to cell lines is called transfection (often incorrectly, since most people don't use live virus for infection, but use cationic lipids instead).

comment If not intelligent design, what is an alternative scientific theory to evolution?
Again, you have a misconception that hypotheses need to be tested in a competitive fashion. There were alternatives to Darwin's evolution, see Lamarckism. The reason evolution has lasted so long, and was promoted from hypothesis to theory, is because it works extraordinarily well in many circumstances. For the aspects that Darwin could not have known about (e.g., epigenetics), the theory has been improved, or "upgraded", to account for the current body of evidence.
