An interesting hole in evolutionary theory (as we understand it)

I came across this in my travels tonight, and thought it might make for an eye-brow raiser...

The long and short of it - some researchers decided to reverse apply Moore's Law to human biology. Using their Moore's Law-based computations, they first applied it to modern computers, and came up with the right answer - that microchips showed up right around the 1960's.

They then took the same computations and applied it to biological complexity (which, of course, humans are the pinnacle of as we know it). The results suggest that life began 5 billion years before the Earth even existed...



What it really means, who knows... The researchers who ran the computations refused to call it a theory and instead label it a "thought excersize" (the cowards!). In any case, it's pretty damned interesting.

The article can be read here:

If you like Morgan Freeman's voice, you can watch some Through the Wormhole.

I'm being kind of a smartass here, but really, TtW is a cool show and easy to watch as long as you won't freak out when they debate whether or not God exists.

That's funny. Explain what was in that physical space before the big bang.

Why are you so sure that there was a physical space?

Are you saying that something can't just exist and that it must have been created?

I'm not. But if science can explain the big bang they should easily also explain whatever physical existence was there before two atoms ****ed themselves into multiple orgasms.

I've been intrigued by that one as well. Infinite series of contraction, bang, expansion.

That's my hangup with science and religion. If there was nothing then what created something?

It's mind boggling and it sucks that I'll never know/comprehend the answers.

So we keep throwing shit at the wall and see what sticks. Science doesn't say there was nothing, by the way. It just says we don't know that yet.

Yes but for the creation of something there must have been nothing in the beginning.

Seriously, I'm bugging out of this convo before I get my head all twisted and go all Jim Carrey in the number 23.
