Could pigs actually fly in the future?

Maybe, I mean they could evolve to become these pigs with wings, so anything's possible. Or, they could not evolve and have avian DNA put into their DNA, it could happen. But we don't know for sure if they will, but anything's possible

What would happen if the cell did not have the organelle?

That means the DNA would have to evolve extremely quickly to do EVERY task an organelle would do, and the DNA would have to be the most complicated thing in the universe in order to do what all the organelles would do. This means the DNA has to evolve from giving orders, to doing orders from itself. It would have to evolve to send of pieces of DNA to go perform a specific task, and little pieces of DNA would float around in the cell, just as an organelle would to provide the basic needs of the cell. Either that, or the cell will die and humans will become extinct and cease to exist.
