for all you science guys.Enjoy! www.sciencedaily.com...
The article reports on the findings posted the journal Molecular Biology and Evolution. The theory is volcanic activity in the Cambrian sea water caused a build up of calcium and thus forced single cell organisms to become multi cell.Who knows with all the talk of volcanic activity on other planets it could help us in our search for life on other planets as well as helping us understand our own origins

Maybe you could supply a brief synopsis of the article, why you find it interesting, and your opinion on the material?

I reply;

i'm thinking.... IF the early lifeforms back then
were like the lifeforms we are finding at the underwater 'vents' today,
then the life would not necessarily been oxygen breathers/metabolisers

...as the present day underwater lifeforms living around these 'Hot Vents' thrive on Sulphuric Acid not oxygen and sunlight


Even the 'normal' but quite differently Adaped (albino looking) Shrimp
that inhabit those hot waters around the Vents are taking a turn in their normal evolutionary path.
~but the other indigenous populations of the 'Thermal Vents' are
completely different than all other sea-life species.


are our oceans, then & today, filled with 'Thermal Vent' Failures?
life forms that branched out from the proximity of the Hot Vents?

I agree also I believe we should be looking at chemosynthesis as a means of converting energy as a staple of extra terrestrial life
