The recombining and swapping of ‘genes’ did not exist in the original
primordial ooze.

The thing is, computer code is very brittle. Change a bit and you've killed
the program. You can go from a functional to a non-functional program as
quick as a single bitflip. Life doesn't work that way. Chesmitry is more
forgiving, and has a more smooth space of solutions. If one of our DNA bases
goes screwed most likely we won't even know about it.

anything ‘real’ to happen. Just because that scheme worked with for our one
instance organic chemistry evolution does not make it either necessary or
