Intelligent Design Viruses

Virus manipulates caterpillars into killing themselves

The suggestion is that, as the caterpillars are dying from the virus, the virus manipulates them to die in a place more convenient for itself. Incidentally, “Neuroscientist: Even viruses are intelligent. Antonio Damasio says, in the excerpt from his new book, that — based on the evidence — we cannot deny viruses “some fraction” of intelligence. Researchers who study viruses, including the one that causes COVID, note similarities between viral strategies and those of insects and animals.”
