If you're going to jump off the cliff of absurdity, then make sure you've got a good running start.
Thanks for that quote, I need a good laugh especially on Monday mornings! Is that an original by you or was it by some other wit?
Well, if you have design teams you have to have design meeting, status, methodologies, test teams, QA, ... The list is endless. Could you imagine listening in on a design meeting for (insert favorite absurdity here). LOL! Thanks for brightening my Monday!
The current population of the earth is now over 6 billion. If the mutations are random they should be appearing rapidly now as each year is equivalent to 6 billion man/years of evolution. Why are there no babies being born with eagle vision or radiation resistant skin?
Have you ever read the book "The Mythical Man Month"? It's lessons apply here. For example, no matter how many woman a pregnant at a given time, it still takes one woman nine months to have a baby. In other words nine woman couldn't have one baby in one month and neither can mutations spread faster through a population just because the population is larger. It can only spread in the following generations. Insects and microscopic life forms are used to look for clues about evolution, because they have many generations in a very short period of time.
Now having a large population means you will have more mutations than a smaller group, but ironically mutations spread slower the larger the group is. And the less benifit a mutation has the slower is spreads.
