Why would you make such an assumption? What Darwinian "function" would
such a global communication system serve? Nature is wonderful alright,
but it got the way it is by a very specific process, not by magic.
No low-probability systems have been devised by Nature that did not
serve the reproduction "requirements" of genes.
