Yes, due to common ancestry. There is only a 1 in 1.5 billion chance of an ERV sharing the same spot and not being due to common ancestry.<quoted text>
Like I said, perhaps the closer the DNA between two species, the more likely there will have similarities in ERV insertions.
We have now.You have not provided what specific virus were found in chimps, gorillas, and humans that shows proof of nested hierarchy.
Because if that didn't happen then that would be evidence that ERV's attack specific places and the common ancestry hypothesis would be falsified.If these alleles in ERVs have become fixed in populations, then how come some humans have ERVs that other humans don't?
This should be obvious.
