  1. So this creature and those proteins are probably of key importance to freezing people/their bodies down to preserve them and then bringing them back to life in the future – or what? Fascinating no matter what tho : )

  2. Idiotic commentary: "they were forced to come up with this ingenious form of survival". NO! The hand of Almighty God did it and the creepy crawley was not "FORCED" to come up with anything! These bombastic commentaries which bow their wimpy knee to the fairy tale of evolution is nothing but a vain attempt to push God out of the picture altogether.
