|Virus argument no longer immune to challenge|
The apparent ability of certain viruses, such as HIV, to develop ("evolve") immunity to drug treatment represents convincing, realtime proof of evolutionary advance, according to some biologists. Recent research, however, poses a potent threat to this emerging icon of evolutionary theory. Scientists have uncovered an alternative explanation for the acquired immunity, one that argues against naturalistic evolution.
