Looking more broadly, Zika may be representative of the kind of disease that increasingly characterizes the modern era—an illness that thrives, in large part, because of how human activity has affected the planet.
My comment: Neo-Darwinian theory has the largest impact on Earth. It causes researchers to ignore how ecological variation must be linked to energy-dependent ecological adaptation via thermodynamic cycles of protein biosynthesis and degradation.
The energy-dependent innate immune system must link nutritional epigenetics from metabolic networks to genetic networks in the context of the physiology of reproduction. Darwin put that fact into the context of his “conditions of life.”
Neo-Darwinian theorists removed Darwin’s “conditions of life” from their claims and substituted mutations and natural selection. Each spring, Darwin’s “conditions of life” are linked to another bumper crop of virus-infected weeds that grow in my yard. There is always at least one type of weed that I have never seen before. Growth occurs in the context of viruses in soil bacteria, which have been linked from thermodynamic cycles of protein biosynthesis and degradation to changes in the microRNAome of bull sperm and nutrient-dependent microRNAs in the milk of mammalian mothers. The complexity of the links includes epigenetic effects on protein biosynthesis and degradation, which link the nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated innate immune system of all living genera to supercoiled DNA via the physiology of reproduction. The physiology of reproduction links supercoiled DNA to protection of all organized genomes from virus-driven entropy.
Viruses in soil bacteria are linked from the growth or inhibited growth of grasses and other plant life to microRNA in sperm cells of mammals.

Indeed, in the case of higher animals we know the kind of orderliness they feed upon well enough, viz. the extremely well-ordered state of matter in more or less complicated organic compounds, which serve them as foodstuffs. After utilizing it they return it in a very much degraded form -not entirely degraded, however, for plants can still make use of it. (These, of course, have their most power supply of ‘negative entropy’ the sunlight)
My comment: Neo-Darwinists refuse to acknowledge that sunlight is the virucidal anti-entropic force that prevents virus-driven entropy in organized genomes. Neo-Darwinists have over-populated Earth with their ridiculous theorists because serious scientists have not weeded out the pseudoscientists. The pseudoscientists are like the weeds in my yard. Any that are not effectively treated will choke out the growth of other life that has already adapted to the viruses that infect it.
My comment: Obviously, this will force everyone to learn how nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated cell type differentiation occurs — even if it is too late to stop the last stages of virus-driven entropy.
In the end, the neo-Darwinian theorists will have killed us all — except perhaps for the very wealthy. Perhaps that is their plan.
