|Best illustration ever of the second law of thermodynamics: http://www.theguardian.com/science/2013/dec/01/what-is-the-second-law-of-thermodynamics|
The creationists argue that according to this law, entropy must be making all life forms, and indeed everything in this system, progress continually from order to disorder; therefore it must be impossible for order, i.e., creations of functioning life forms, to have evolved from disorder, or for more highly functioning forms to have evolved from less functioning forms.
In other words, I think the creationists are saying that God had to have created the earth because it takes some energy or power to create; that form cannot emerge from un-form, that order cannot emerge from disorder, without that input of energy.
However, this argument neglects the fact that Earth's thermodynamic system is not a closed system: sunlight is continually providing energy that is transformed into life-sustaining functions.
I will be writing more about some of the arguments creationists have used to try to disprove Darwin's theory of evolution.
I'm writing about this whole idea of science and religion not to call names on either side but to explore the arguments both sides use to try to prove their points.
