Too late: how do you think mitochondria and E. Coli happened among our ancestor species?

The theory that Richard Dawkins put in his book "The Blind Watchmaker" is that early on two or more bacteria fused together to supplement each other within the boundaries of one "cell". For this reason, the mitochondria has its own "DNA" separate from the nucleus. This theory was first proposed in 1967 by L.Sagan: http://endosymbionts.blogspot.com/2006/01/on-origin-of-mitosing-cells-1967.html

Clearly all this proves is that we really don't know that much about what's going on in the universe.

Clearly? I think it depends on your sample size. So far we have only been able to collect very little data about some phenomena, and quite a good amount of data about others. So, we do know a lot about some things.

With an infinite universe (such as ours) and finite lifespan (such as ours) there is only so much data we can collect to gather inferences about what we observe. I think what you are saying is redundant.

A method of solution is perfect if we can forsee from the start, and even prove, that following that method we shall attain our aim. -- Leibnitz
