Some think that Mimi might be the “missing link,” a sign of how life first evolved on our planet and in particular how cells with a nucleus might have originally evolved, leading eventually to human beings. It’s possible that in Earth’s early oceans, the virus was the dominant form of life and existed on its own, only later developing the ability to be parasitic on the cellular life which evolved afterwards. Most of the human genome is made up from viral DNA, and the same is true for most of the rest of animal and plant life.
It sounds odd to think of the virus being the beginning of life, but we have to get past our prejudice against viruses as being parasitic and harmful. The virus is, if nothing else, a survivor. Viruses survive against all odds and in all environments. Viruses replicate and adapt at a remarkable rate, making it very difficult for us humans to defend against or kill them. Such adaptability and survivability would have been very helpful in Earth’s primordial environment.
Christians look to heaven for signs of their Creator; perhaps they should pay more attention to what happens when they blow their nose.
This is but one type of belief that is actually based on something you can test to see if there's any sense to it..?
