A single part of my computer is responsible for it functioning... It's called the fuse. The fuse being disabled does not provide proof the fuse has the mechanics that produce the rest of the working mechanism. The entire instruction set for the teeth could be separate for the toggle "on/off" of that instruction set. Finding the on/off switch is not the same as finding the instructions for production. Once they find those, then I'll be interested.
Seems most here agree.
Do we not have examples of animals re-activating disabled genes already?
Your computer is not comparable to an organism except by the loosest analogies and in certain specific scenarios.
Is this one of them?
We are talking about genetic "switches" here. Not genetic "transcription" or "translation" is it?
So I could use any example of a switch. We know how switches work. Getting the new information there is the interesting part.Thesh wrote:Genes are large databases containing flags, using a language similar to SQL, but all the keywords are latin. Basically they updated one row in the database and changed beak to reptile snout.
Hey. Thanks, even better than "turned it on" example that I used.
Ah, sorry. Misread part of your post.
