Intuition verses scientific facts.- Gamers crack Aids virus.

This news paper article describes an amazing feat. It describes how online gamers cracked a retro virus (AIDS like) DNA code within 3 weeks; something which has been a long standing problem for the scientific community.

I think this has ramifications into what constitutes the validity and limitations of science as a discipline in understanding and making known the workings of the universe and creation.

    They didn’t crack any code; they successfully recreated a 3D chain from a 2D model because of their spatial abilities. Computers are notoriously bad at duplicating this spatial ability through computations and permutations but you go way off the tracks to suggest that this is somehow evidence for a limitation of science as a discipline.
