NEWS: Evolutionary Jump from Unicellularity to Multicellularity was Prepared Beforehand

A recent study that just came out states that the evolutionary leap from single-celled organisms to multicellular organisms was relatively easy. What may have made it relatively easy was that the ancient single-celled ancestors seem to have had much of the genetic toolkit needed for becoming multicellular already assembled. This precisely fits what I have been proposing on this site, and adds credibility to the theories of this site.
"The [single-celled] ancestor [of all animals] already had the tools that the cell needed to differentiate into different tissues," says Sabidó. "The cells that were around before animals were more or less prepared for this leap."[1]
This was unpredicted by Darwinian evolutionists. If it were all simply accidental, it was highly fortuitous for the upward advancement of life on Earth.
"[This] means that the single-celled ancestor of all animals ... was more complex than scientists have previously given it credit for."[1]
