To date, the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), which houses all published DNA sequences (as well as RNA and protein sequences), currently acknowledges nineteen different coding languages for DNA…
This is not a dilemma at all. Since an organism is itself an emergent property - a structure that builds up under the force of atmospheric, geological and hydrological conditions - and so its quite plausible that different strains of Eukaryotic cells built up - one lines assembling into the normal evolutionary sequence assumed by biologists i.e. from eukaryote, to sponge like creature, to deuterostome, onward towards the evolution of fish etc.
This is not a problem for evolution, because evolution is true.

1) It goes against the hypothesis I want so we should throw it out. That seems like lazy option.
2) The science is already in. So this seems like a bad option as well
3) Adding more years to the table doesn't solve the problem this completely changes the sequence in which things are said to have evolved. Vertebrates are said to have come from invertebrates. If they both evolved from two separate lines of eukaryotic cells this solution does nothing.
Come on man lets be serious.
If it is only in the mitochondrial line, then i would imagine that this happened when the split between eukaryotic and prokaryiotic took place.
It is rational to conclude that if life could find the right conditions to arise once, that it could arise multiple times from scratch and that these 'starts' would have differences from each other.
