Science's Law of Disorder:
The 2nd law of Thermodynamics
Of all the laws of science—they don't get any simpler and easier to understand than the second law of Thermodynamics.

In fact, Albert Einstein called it the most basic law of science.

Closely related to the second law of Thermodynamics is the fact that everything in our universe, when left to itself, tends toward more and more disorder (called "entropy").

What exactly is the "Law of Disorder?"

The fact that everything tends toward disorder in our universe (that is, if an intelligent mind is not involved) is a phenomenon experienced by every person every day of his/her life.
  • For the parent, the Law of Disorder is seen practically every day they walk into a toy room after the kids are through playing.

  • For the computer operator, it's those pesky chords under the desk that never arrange themselves without help, but somehow manage to get disorganized without much help.

  • For the repair mechanic, it's never walking into the shop expecting to find that the customer's car had fixed itself.

  • For the real estate owner, "nature's tendency for disorder" is the house that always starts falling apart after a few years. And not only does it not repair itself, it didn't draw up its own plans and construct itself either.

  • For the author, it's never having a book write itself by simply providing a word processor with 2 million random letters.

  • And for the engineer, it's getting that airplane, automobile, or space shuttle to work—and then to keep working on its own. No matter what the complex invention, the invention itself will never maintain its complex order without intelligent help. And since it can't maintain order, it sure won't be able to randomly create itself from scratch.

In other words, the Law of Disorder—the easiest, simplest, most fundamental law of science—has been proven through the ages, in all areas of life.

It continues to take place in every observable spot of the universe, without exception.

What the "Law of Disorder" really means

Entropy, or the "Law of Disorder," could be summarized as follows:

Both the creating of complex order, and the maintaining of complex order, always require huge amounts of intelligently applied energy, energy that must be continually re-applied if complex order is to be maintained.

Furthermore—and this is important—the more energy you feed into any spot of the universe, the more rapidly disorder occurs in that spot of the universe. It's like having a two-year-old start playing with an orderly box of toys—versus 10 kids playing with 10 boxes of toys. Which scenario ALWAYS creates the larger mess?

Obviously, the Law of Disorder is all any honest mind needs to understand regarding the validity of evolution (and atheism—since it's entirely founded on evolution).

How so?

Because evolution totally violates Entropy, by claiming that MANY things in nature did the exact opposite, to the extreme.

Furthermore, atheism is clearly a scientific impossibility in that nothing truly complex in our universe is able to "create itself" (or maintain itself) without the aid of an intelligent mind.
