Evolution/Evolution vs 2nd Law of Thermodynamics


Cole wrote at 2014-08-15 21:08:26
The 2nd law of thermodynamics states that within a closed system entropy will inevitably occur.  This is a common tactic used by creationists.  

Here`s what they are missing:  the law refers to a CLOSED system.  But the Earth and it`s BIOSPHERE is NOT A CLOSED SYSTEM.  

The Earth receives a constant input of energy, from the sun.

Just google search or better yet, youtube search ``evolution 2nd law of thermodynamics,`` understand the fallacy, then get back out there and stand up for science to those science denying creationists.

I can answer questions about evolutionary mechanisms and theory, including genetic drift, mutation, natural selection, etc. I also can clear up misconceptions about evolution as it's sometimes talked about by those not well-versed in the subject (e.g., some politicians and many religious fundamentalists).


I have a Ph.D. in Biology, and presently teach Evolution and Biodiversity, Genetics, Botany, and Zoology at the University of Miami.
