Update: Macro-evolution and the problem of complexity
Summarized excerpt from

and a Peek at a Monumental Problem for Evolution
Biological systems are so complex that, even if computing power doubles every 18 months or so, it will be another few millennia before we can analyze even a single synapse. And if the analysis of biological systems is impossible, the evolution of such systems also is impossible, or at least scientifically unlikely. It would be serendipity on steroids to say that evolution, with its limited experimental powers, designed and created a few basic components which then, as luck would have it, combined in such a way to produce far greater complexity and emergent behaviors.
