Did viruses make mammals communicate with pheromones?

Perhaps viruses are calibrating all mechanisms for both individual survival and for speciation across all species. If so, shall we credit them for all of Creation? What then can be said for “The Language of God?” 1532 genes and interactions among them are required for sexual reproduction that involves the mammalian placenta.
