basically, it is that computers do not self-replicate, thus cannot be considered life.
Here is something you should ask yourself, (using the theory of evolution), can we conclude without the presence of human beings that, computers/technology evolved on itself without any outside influence?

When you refer to evolution, what exactly does that mean? I have had some thoughts on this subject, but would prefer to keep them to myself until I know exactly what it is that you're talking about.
I should clarify my question. Are you talking about the evolution of humans from earlier species of mammals, primates, simpler life forms, and so on? Or are you referring to evolution in general, regardless of species?

The Oxford English Dictionary defines "random" thus:
Having no definite aim or purpose; not sent or guided in a particular direction; made, done, occurring, etc., without method or conscious choice; haphazard.
equating god with a "dude in a white robe"
logic follows this is absurd.
