Information complexity in a simple microbe defies evolution


Stanford University researchers needed 128 computers to even partially simulate the microbe Mycoplasma genitalium, which has only 525 genes (complex bacteria such as E Coli has 4,288 genes).
As co-researcher Markus Covert explained “running a simulation for a single cell to divide just one time takes around 10 hours and generates half a gigabyte of data”.
They reported “the depth and breadth of cellular complexity has turned out to be nearly unbelievable”.
I would suggest therefore that to believe this complexity in a living simple organism came about by random chance is totally unbelievable.
