Moore’s Law and the Origin of Life

"Moore's Law and the Origin of Life"

The basic premise is controversial: "As life has evolved, its complexity has increased exponentially, just like Moore's law. Now geneticists have extrapolated this trend backwards and found that by this measure, life is older than the Earth itself." (Personally, I'm skeptical, but I thought it was interesting enough to post.)
