Interesting subject on Mike & Mike today: Whether computer data should be the only method used to decide if college football teams should play in a National Championship.
Point for- saying that its best because it takes out subjectivity of choosing, point against- saying that computer data is not the only thing needed to choose the right teams.
I'm with choice two for one big reason: Computers don't decide what data they collect- and what the importance of the data is- to the answer. Computers are programmed by humans to accept the data that a particular human decides is important to them. Therefore, computers (in this instance) are nothing more than calculators designed to put across a particular opinion of an individual as to what they believe is the most important.
