Six. One to write the procedure, another to test it, three to sign off on it and another to revise it again.
You forgot quality control and audit, that accounts for at least another six.

But does the quality department fall under the auspices of engineering?

Crap. Here wee go with the engineer jokes.
:-(
A fellow was traveling in a hot air balloon and lost his bearings in a cloud bank.
He slowly lowered his altitude until he could faintly see the landscape below.
Eventually he spotted a human figure on a hill. He shouted below,
"Can you tell me where I am?"
The figure shouts back, "You are about 50 feet in the air in a hot air balloon."
The fellow shouts, "You must be an engineer!"
The figure affirms this is true and asks how he knew this.
The fellow explains, "Your answer was both completely accurate and utterly useless."
The figure shouts, "You must be a manager!"
The fellow affirms this is true and asks how he knew this.
The figure explains, "You've gotten your self lost, you have no idea where you are and now it is all my fault!"

No moron, it was a helpful hint.

The problem is that you tard's like to play the heads I win tails you lose game by being dishonest when people answer you honestly. if you were honest I would have no problem answering your question.

Truly we all regret the night that your father did not bugger your mother.

Ha,Ha,Ha,
Let's see ... we ask a question and you are either incapable or unwilling to answer it. You ask a strawman question, rather than falling into your transparent trap, we point out to you that your question is poorly worded and give you advice how to ask it in such a way that it will provide some meaningful information .... and we are the sniveling cowards? You do realize no one buys into that. Even the few people who once agreed with some of your comments are shying away from you. I think you are rapidly become a caricature.

not talking about how first life formed. talking about how it acquired the information it needed to continue on after it formed. i see you are still lost. and as far as you answering anything. i won't hold my breath because you never do. but you sure play the heII out of youtube like it is a science class. is that where you got your education? lol
That was explained, practically in baby-talk, in the video.
Apparently you didn't watch it.

That's disappointing - but not really surprising.

Are you saying it just appeared as if by magic, penned in the mist of time, in modern English about 1500 years before the first inklings of modern English was even a dream in Shakespeare’s mind?

That's not an attempt. That's simply reproducing. Reproducing will not help bacteria survive past their own lifespan. The LINEAGE either survives or it does not. Unless you can demonstrate bacteria are intelligent then they aren't purposely attempting anything.
Cue Jim Ryan territory.
<quoted text>
Indeed, plants show GREAT survival instinct when I introduce them to my chainsaw and lawnmower.
Apparently it's not very good.
<quoted text>
So you're either claiming that intelligence is required to OVERCOME fear of individual survival which means going AGAINST survival instinct. Or that they're stupid. Either way you're going against Wolfie's claims, and this doesn't matter anyway as the organisms you're referring to are animal and thus have a base intelligence.
<quoted text>
Already have. You just ignored it or are too stupid to take it into account. Figure that's already an integral part of your modus operandi. An instinct, if you will.
The last two statements you attribute to me are not mine. You are intellectually constipated. Go away.
