I'm new here, and have read with interest the debates on the
origins of viruses, and the questions as to whether they are
alive or not.  My question is:  What are their purpose?

Is it to spread genetic material across the planet?  Is it to
achieve hegemony over the planet (seems they already do...)?

Any thoughts are welcome,


Mark A. Lilly

I hope you hear many blessed voices in the wilderness.
