it's tough. on paper, trent johnson looked like a good hire. he had done a good job at his 2 previous stops. just because someone wins, doesn't mean they're going to at lsu. but for sure, i would like to get someone who has already done something interesting. i guess i'm at blank slate mindset right...

[quote]I suspect that this happened very early on[/quote]i agree. [quote]There are predatory bacteria whose whole life cycle is dependent upon reproducing inside other bacterial cells.

[quote]How am I supposed to provide footage on the first time one organism consumed another[/quote]first, yes. you are highlighting one of the problems with large scale evolution up to ucd, i.e. no direct, repeatable evidence. second, you are basically conceding the point that you can't even think o...
