Man v machine

Ignore all the comments on this Reddit thread and just be completely blown away by the complexity of our genetics against the complexity of our best technology.

A single sperm has 37.5MB of DNA information in it.

An adult male produces 170 million a day.

That’s 6375 terrabytes of data. If my maths is correct.

    1. 1. Evolution by natural selection is more that just "random chance".
      2. A system in which 99.99999994% of resources produced are wasted is hardly indicative of design. When computers transmit data they don't produce 6 PB to deliver a 37 MB message.
