Yes, I think that. The sites listed below describe a new theory wherein
there was considerable random genetic changes, but they occurred in the
primordial pond. The theory explains the origins and the diversity of life.
What we see happening today are only relatively small adaptations.
The new theory is by Dr. Periannan Senapathy, and it is based on his
research into genes -- specifically split genes (i.e., eukaryotic genes).
He found that the probability of occurrence of split genes in random
DNA is very high.
