What do you find to be the most awesome ?


 


1........This Universe with all the enormous distances and unimaginable masses of stars and galaxies.


 


2........ The incredible variety of evolved life on Earth from the virus to the whale, via the 20,000 species of butterflies !

must be the universe, and if there are other forms of life out there on planets in far away galaxy's that may even but this planet to shame in respect of the amount of varied life.

I love (as a biochemist and ecotoxicologist).... Ebola..


 


As simple and as effective, evading 4 billion years of evolution.


 


How can you not love simplicity..


 


Something that is neither classified as dead or alive must surely be the most fearsome foe..

Surely Ebola didn't evade evolution, but evolved too, as all other living organisms have

 done?

a virus is classified as neither dead or alive.


different views regarding on how ebola 'evolved'


 


Personally I don't think a virus evolves(-ed), rather a string of RNA


split off and became a non self sufficient non living entity, a by-product


if you will of something that can replicate with respect to a radiant


environment consisting solely of sugars and proteins.


 


anyway,
