I came across this article today Unintelligent Design

While it does take a few pops at the intelligent design crowd, it's an interesting look at some of the research looking into the origin of life on Earth. There's also a fascinating chunk in there discussing the origin of the nucleus in eukaryotes.

I'd be interested to know what everyone here makes of this.

Imagination is really the greatest evolutionist quality. They all should try SCIFI career.

I'm going to put on my evo-glasses and make a conclusion. Viruses can't be between non-life and life chronologically and there is a good reason. Bacteria must precede virus because virus are incapable of reproducing without a fully functional prokaryotic or eukaryotic cell present to procreate its own existence.

Okay, back to my creato-glasses. :) I think the often overlooked biological fact is that the vast majority of bacteria are neutral or beneficial to life as they perform house keeping duties. While Viruses are not bacteria, foreseeably they were in a similar boat before unbridled entropy took over post fall and increasingly post flood.
