A new giant virus has been discovered and the researchers say something rather surprising about Darwin’s theory.
“There is a mechanism of permanent creation going on in amoeba producing a new repertoire of viruses and predisposing giant viruses to become pathogens once they specialise”, Raoult said.
He said the mechanism was not foreseen by Charles Darwin’s theory that life comes from a common ancestor.
“The idea of a common ancestor makes no sense in the light of viruses,” he said.
“That was Darwin’s idea, but he was clearly wrong.”
