I think natural laws and genetic mutations could account for us evolving into humans in 3.5 billion years. It only took 2 million years to go from tree dwelling apes into the superior large brained creatures we are today. Actually, algae are genetically superior to viruses as viruses cannot live without a host and have no DNA properties of their own whereas algae can survive independently and thrive in their own ecosystem.

OBVIOUSLY IT DID. I JUST SAY THAT THERE IS A NATURAL LAW, THE DRIVE OF COMPLEX SYSTEMS TO SELF ORGANIZE - EXTROPY - THAT IS THE COUNTER CURRENT TO ENTROPY THAT IS NEEDED FOR THIS MIRACLE TO HAPPEN.

"GENETICALLY SUPERIOR" IS RATHER SUBJECTIVE AND CAN BE DEFINED DIFFERENTLY BY DIFFERENT PEOPLE.

"There is no such thing as a newtonian universe. There is only the quantum mechanical. Newton's laws are wrong, not approximations, but flat wrong, superceded by einstein's and the physics that came after. If we assumed newton was right we'd never have made it to the moon, Mars, etc.

I KNOW. I WAS TALKING HISTORICALLY.
