Read the thread title. It's what the book is all about.although there is pretty much agreement among the single celled organisms.

It would explain intelligent design with glaring macrodefects like 'nose-hair', etc.

Single cells, bacterias and plants are not sentient, and they are not beings (in traditional definition). What we call sentience and "being" is the product of our nervous system. If a life does not have NS (or analogous, comparably complex system), it cannot be sentient, and does not qualify as being.
