Evidence for Evolution 'Evidence for the endosymbiotic hypothesis of the origin of eukaryotes.'? 1. The Law of Biogenesis: All cells arise from pre-existing cells. 2. Giardia Lambira “Bever Fever” (causes diarrhea) - It’s halfway between a eukaryote and a prokaryote; it has no mitochondria (meaning no oxygen flow) suggesting that they may have lived before oxygen was on earth. The first billion years there was no oxygen on earth so that life evolved originally in an anaerobic environment which is why we are very reduced we are in a very reduced state and that reflects our past history. We have a deficit of oxygen. There are many things in our body that be oxidized, which is a problem because the atmosphere is trying to oxidize us. But by being reduced we can have oxidation in our bodies. - Eventually the world would be oxidized to the point where we could get free oxygen available in the environment, because these guys don’t have mitochondria, it is thought that the original eukaryotes came up with oxygen free conditions. -
