Has anyone explored the possibility that the bacteria micro-fossil like 
structures in the famed martian meteorite, are, in fact, not bacteria 
fossils but perhaps virus fossils(secondary question:  do viruses 
If not virus fossil, then could they be early, primitive forms of life 
like RNA "capsules?"
