After just reading an interesting article on a recently discovered “Giant” virus called Pithovirus, that was taken from Siberian Permafrost
a number of issues became pertinent since the virus could be revived and is now active.
The claim of 30,000 years sounds ridiculous considering the virus is now living even though it was embedded in permafrost, low oxygen and the absence of light.
In fact the very claim it was embedded in ancient permafrost does not seem to indicate to these blinkered, indoctrinated intelligent scientists, that for a virus to have survived any embedding, that embedding would have to have been some form of rapid burial event for it to have been preserved.
If it had been buried in a natural gradual layering of frost year after year, it would have deteriorated before the first year was up.
Also the fact that recent discoveries of a supposed “65 million year old” T Rex was able to provide DNA, haemoglobin, and numerous other fragile biological components http://creation.com/sensational-dinosaur-blood-report or the soft tissue and proteins from a duckbilled dinosaur (still soft and stretchy) http://creation.com/dinosaur-soft-tissue-and-protein-even-more-confirmation, exposes the incredible myopic bias of modern “evolutionary” science in discounting the possibility of a young earth that underwent a catastrophic event like Noah’s Flood as depicted in numerous cultural traditions and stories.
The fact that “this giant virus” is more genetically complex to viruses today shows again that everything was created “good” and since the fall everything is following the law of entropy and decay.
This Pithovirus is said to be more genetically “diverse” with 500 genes and a previously discovered “giant virus” called Pandoravirus with up to 2500 genes, says it is closer to an original likened the first dogs prior to the development of less diverse breeds and their inherent weaknesses. Consider the HIV virus with only 12 genes.
(This raises concerns that these revived ancient viruses may be more virulent than the ones we have now if they are infectious to humans. This may become God’s way of pinning man’s technological advances down as we aggressively turn away from His grace and mercy and truth in Jesus Christ, to other religious fables like evolution, seeking our own lusts and passions and conveniently forgetting Him.)
Yet this next amazing quote seems to fly against the evidence the article itself provides,
“The idea that all viruses evolved from one common origin, I suspect is not true,” said Van Etten
Well they all have come from an original. Just not necessarily one “penultimate” universal virus, but one original penultimate virus “kinds” all who were designed to perform specific functions in creation.
It is the fall scenario that has corrupted them from performing their original tasks, though many still continue today to perform marvellous works which maintain our bodies, and our entire world.
