Only less than 1 gig of info can be stored encoded in human genome. But because of redundancies in DNA, actual information content is less.
But accdg to Ray, the brain can store more info than that! trillions...compared to 6 billion bits.
"I come up with thousands of trillions of bytes of information to characterize what's in a brain, which is millions of times greater than what is in the genome."
How does the size of a KNOWN, finite entity- DNA- have anything to do with a growing organ? Apples and oranges...red herring...straw man...all of these...that's like saying how can my software program of 500kb create files which are Megabytes in size...or like saying how can one little sperm and egg with 1 million, discrete but-soon to-die-off cells create something that replaces some 6 billion cells every day? Your conflating the two...tsk tsk...your brain doesn't harness DNA to store it's information...the DNA provides the PLANS to BUILD the PARTS that do the "data housing"...same as when I design something on my computer...I may create a CAD file that is say 5MB...but it may be for a comuter memeory component that can store 5 terabytes...stop conflating the two, they are COMLPETELY different monsters...I mean one cell has DNA(your millions of bits) and we lose millions everyday...your math is bad, your science is bad, your theory has failed and Ray whoever is an idiot...tell him I said so...

Only because you bury your head in the sand. Evidence of a world wide flood is world wide. From the claims on top of Everest to the Grand Canyon where the Colorado river would have had to flow up hill to create it.
Geez, Lango, not that dumb argument! It doesn't have to flow uphill if the plate below it rises. Which it did over millions of years.

Your global flood not only kills all life (Noah's boat included) worldwide in multiple different ways, it's simply not reflected in the geological record. Your boys even sent out geologists back in the eighties with the specific mandate of finding evidence of the global flood. They soon put a stop to that. Because when they got back they told their bosses exactly what they didn't wanna hear.

But again, why the heck are you pretending about evidence when your position is Jewish wizardry?

Yup. The ONLY reason the river would have to flow UP-hill would be is if the Earth was only 6,000 years old. But since science refutes YECism it's dishonest of them to make that claim. Yet again creo's break the 9th Commandment.

Then bozos like Lango repeat the argument without even understanding it.

Well, if I bump in to Ray, I'll have to ask. Ray's a bright guy but not always correct. I'd like to know how the 'less than 1 gig' figure came from in a genome with about 3.2 billion base pairs. Especially when DNA would seem to be comparable to a quaternary number system rather than binary.
I think he's right. As I found the same info from another source. Although I think he meant bits instead of bytes when he said he found trillions bytes of information that characterize the brain. That's super-duper large! lol

"The human genome has around 3 billion base pairs, each of which stores two bits (to indicate one of four bases). That's 6 billion bits, or about 3/4 of a gigabyte."

Yeah, not sure how computer gigabytes would translate when comparing biological DNA bases. Maybe this'd help?

Pished off? Boy, you misunderstand me Lango. Fundies provide mirth.

And what atheist are you referring to?

The rules, my dear Lango, that you place on God are those where it MUST line up with your particular ideas about God, which mostly have their roots in a semi-literalistic reading of the Bible.

In short, just because you claim God MUST have created Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago, God itself is not necessarily limited to your little old book written by a bunch of ancient ignorant superstitious goat-herders.

"It is difficult enough to imagine a time, roughly 13.7 billion years ago, when the entire universe existed as a singularity. According to the big bang theory, one of the main contenders vying to explain how the universe came to be, all the matter in the cosmos -- all of space itself -- existed in a form smaller than a subatomic particle."

That gravity! The gravity of the entire universe.

And you're right? CAD is a different monster than say AI machine or robot. CAD is just 2-dimensional. lol

Ray has a point when comparing his apples to oranges. Why because it can shed light to how much computer data is needed to simulate someone with a half-brain.

The American alligators are numerous and live among human inhabitation. Most states have strict laws against killing gators without a license or without cause. You should check your state laws before killing an alligator.

I don't think they're specifically talking about fission of uranium.
How Nuclear Fusion Reactors Work
Fusion reactors have been getting a lot of press recently because they offer some major advantages over other power sources. They will use abundant sources of fuel, they will not leak radiation above normal background levels and they will produce less radioactive waste than current fission reactors.
Fusion reactors are now in experimental stages at several laboratories in the United States and around the world.
http://science.howstuffworks.com/fusion-react...
So technically, nuclear fusion is possible.
No $shit...that's how stars give off light...Langoliers is the moron who claimed that they create energy in the same manner...DEAD WRONG...CURRENT VIABLE nuclear reactors-> FISSION...stars->FUSION...d o you not remember the COLD FUSION hoax many years back...cold fusion is the holy grail of energy...he whom can master cold fusion will own the world...currently all of the labs have been UNABLE to create a viable FUSION reaction that generates MORE energy output than the input required...until this is done, we will use fission reactors...I am hopeful, as an engineer, we will meet the challenge someday...but the point is the Lango simply got it DEAD WRONG...period!

The idea was that fusion or fission is a product of some intelligence. Just like how intelligence of Engineers are needed to create a blueprint for their work by using CorelDraw, AutoCAD, etc.

But okay, you were arguing about something and missing the point.
