Endogenous retroviruses are markers in DNA that show a point where a big change in a species has happened, and are passed on to offspring. Bacterial antibiotic evolution, vestigial organs, and endogenous retroviruses are all supporting factors of evolution.

It is important to know that not one single organism can evolve. People say, “Well, turn that cat into a dog”. Unfortunately, that is not how it works.
