It's like asking "Why do you exist?". :roll:
It matters not how strait the gate
How charged with punishment the scroll
I am the Master of my fate
I am the Captain of my soul.

Life is the most precous accident. Existance of viruses is just like it.
If you are asking - Can't life exist without virus particles? or what is their importance? Then i think the present ecosystem and organisms have been evolved to be with viruses and in that course , viruses became some important part of ecosystem. But without it life would have evolved differently.


By the way Viruses have now a social role- viruses are connecting people from even diff. continents for the good purpose of war against HIV and others or just for killing time on forums :wink:
