Re: Theories - Origin of Life

... is not the only game in town, as do Dawkins and Coyne and most biologists. I do not support the extreme position that evolution occurs ONLY in bursts, which is also the source of Dawkins' and Coyne's objections.

It's just that most evolutionary change occurs in relatively rapid bursts—5 or 50,000 years—rather than millions of years, where they're typically stable. So his theory's not false—it's just a special form that he wrote ...

... organisms". A virus is just RNA and/or DNA, that enters the cell, takes over the cell's machinery, makes more of itself till the cell usually bursts with viruses, or the clever viruses have learned how to live in the cell and by surrounding its DNA/RNA with the cell's membrane as a 'shield' ...
