If Darwin were to read this article, he would find it very surprising that humans didn’t evolve from a common ancestor solely based on evolution, but also due to viruses that have shaped our DNA and made us very different from other species. He would find this very surprising (much like I did) because the article essentially provided us with experimental evidence that showed us that viruses are entities that have actually had some positive benefits to them. I found it most surprising that something so small, can and has, impacted each and every species in such a significant matter. This article also made me reach a realization that left me feeling kind of bad. It made me see that the negative connotation I once had about viruses was all wrong and that in reality, we owe it to them for helping us become who we are today. I think that reviving dead viruses should happen as long as they are only revived long enough for them to complete one reproductive cycle. We wouldn’t want a very vicious and strong virus to be around for longer than we need it to. Reviving dead viruses would be very interesting as they’d provide us with an opportunity to add on to our knowledge of how viruses evolve in general and help us better understand a virus’s past.
