In the Premiere issue of Turtle Digest there was a report called Accidental
Immune System. It told of how 400 million years ago a virus got into the
vertebras of that time and spliced in a piece of DNA that caused vertebras
from then on to have the complex immune system we have today.
Scientists have known for some time that up until 100 million years ago
all vertebras laid eggs. Then overnight, in evolutionary time, vertebras
switched to live birth. This is called the placental Puzzle. This is because
it was the placenta that made it possible. Now some researchers have found
evidence that again it was a virus, that just happened have all the DNA
needed for a placenta, that got into the then vertebra and spliced in
the placental DNA. It seems to me to defy logic to believe that all of
this was a random accordance.
The evidence is clearly growing very strong that evolution was not a random
event as many evolution biologists still believe. There is little doubt
in my mind that evolution was guided and the universe was purposefully
