The reading passages discusses an interesting topic about how Agnostid, a primitive arthropods relative of insects, may have live 450 million years ago. The article provides three hypothesis supported with solid arguments. However, the lecturer casts doubts on the hypothesis made by the article and rebuttes each of the arguments of the reading passage.
First, the article suggests the agnostids could have live as free swimming predators considering others primitive arthropods were predators as well. Challenging this point, the lecturer explains that a good predator needs excellent vision or a special organ to sense the prey. On the contrary, the agnostids had poor eyes and even many of them were blind.
Second, the article mentions the agnostids could live as a seafloor dwellers, comparing the similarities with the way of living of some arthropods, eating dead organisms and baterias from the seafloor. The lecturers refuttes this hypotesis by arguing that seafloor creatures usually live in a reduced area and presents a slow movility. On the contrary, the agnostids were found in big extensions suggesting they moved very fast.
Finally, the article proposes that the agnostids could have been parasites, living form bigger creatures. The lecturer questions this idea by explaining that the large population found of agnostids could have killed all the creatures they parasited. Consequently, all the animals would have perished. Thus, this point is destroyed by the lecturer.
