Examples

  • If I understand you correctly, then, any cell within Eukarya may stem from any point (organism) on the whole horizontal (ground) line.

    A Disclaimer for Behe?

  • In terms of the graph paper exercise I suggested, this can be represented by drawing lines of ancestry from any point (i.e., cell, at a vertex) in Eukarya through the horizontal or ground interval proposed by Oleg.

  • In short, Eukarya is not a tree with a discrete root, arising from a unique cell, but a forest.

    A Disclaimer for Behe?

  • The same will be the case for the clades nesting within Eukarya, if their defining characters are inferred to originate not in discrete cells, but communally (whatever that means — I don't know, except that Woese disallows inferences to discrete ancestors).

  • This is what Margulis calls symbiogenesis and it led to the formation of higher cells, known as the Eukarya.

  • The three domains include diverse life forms such as the Eukarya (organisms, including humans, yeast, and plants, whose cells have a DNA-containing nucleus) as well as Bacteria and Archaea (two distinct groups of unicellular microorganisms whose DNA floats around in the cell instead of in a nucleus).

  • Now although 200 million years sounds like a long time, it is indecently rapid when compared to the “relatively simple” step of creating the first complex cells—Eukarya—from bacteria, which took 2 billion years.

    SuperCooperators

  • Going from “nothing” to bacteria seems to be a much more difficult task than going from bacteria to the more elaborate Eukarya.
