The article seems to rest on asserting as "fact" that "the information of the genetic make-up of a human is a far cry from what is needed in order to transform a fertilized egg only into a human body, let alone into a person with intelligence and consciousness."

But you provide no proof for this, it is mere assertion, and one, I might add, that no geneticist in the world agrees with.

I know, of course, that you are not a geneticist, because of this incredible blunder:

"If it is true that out of these 20,000 genes "we probably make at least 10 times that number of different proteins", then the genetic information per protein reduces to less than 100 bytes."

You may want to look up alternative gene splicing and find out what is actually going on.

Here's an SW article on [swiki]Splicing[/swiki] that you may find useful.

Don't you think it would have been a good idea to learn some basic genetics before you started talking about it?
