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:

It's mind boggling and it sucks that I'll never know/comprehend the answers.
There is a point where it can make you a little dizzy. Someday, they'll know.

They used to not know how the sun moved. They figured it out.

Seriously, I'm bugging out of this convo before I get my head all twisted and go all Jim Carrey in the number 23.
Time and the concepts of "before" and "after" only exist in our heads. It's how we understand the universe because we obsess over/contemplate what we have done and worry about/anticipate what is to be. All this while continually living in the knife edged "now" even though some people don't seem to be aware of it. And that still may not all be true. It's just how we process it.

It can and it has. I pride myself in my ability and persistence in "figuring things out."

Truth is I doubt this is a topic that ever will be brought to my level.

It must have been created because it existed and for it to exist then it must have been created.

Unless it simply exists.

Well, for the sake of this discussion, I am assuming that the universe exists. So existence is a given. Nothing else is.

You can ask GOD someday, it's quite possible we will never understand because we don't have the capacity.
