What Took Alphabet Soup Viruses So Long to Emerge?

AIDS, Ebola, SARS, MERS, H1N1, SARS CoV-2. Every one of these mysterious viruses have emerged within just one lifetime. One lifetime! Experts assert that AIDS was caused by an African monkey. Ebola was caused by an African Fruit Bat. SARS-1 was caused by Asian Palm Civet. MERS was caused by a Dromedary Camel, and SARS CoV-2 was caused by a Chinese bat. Homo Sapiens — humans who look like us — evolved 130,000 years ago from our ancestors who had remained in Africa, we’re told. Bats, Civets, Camels and Monkeys, I’m sure, have been in existence and existing adjacent to and in harmony with human beings since time immemorial. Which prompts one to ponder — What took them so long to manifest? I’ve yet to hear experts explain why these “species jumps,” this recent scourge of viruses, took 129,930 years to emerge?
