RE: I'm having problems believing in evolution
Again... I'd be glad to help but I honestly have no idea what you're asking.

Try rephrasing the question or giving me more clues about what you're looking for.

Your original question/sentence, above, just doesn't parse.

"Theology made no provision for evolution. The biblical authors had missed the most important revelation of all! Could it be that they were not really privy to the thoughts of God?" - E. O. Wilson

Wait, I think I have it. Are you asking about the viral insertion that resulted in placental mammals (instead of our original version, which were monotremes), mentioned by the previous poster?

It turns out that the evolution of the placenta seems to be driven by a side-effect of the insertion of an Endogenous RetroVirus (ERV), which changed the way the egg developed. There are several articles about this, online, but you can start with one of the science papers on the subject:

Let me know if you need any translations.

Edit to Add: Here is a decent blog article that references the above paper, but seems to do a better job of explaining some of it.
