    1. Not really. Earth isn't a closed system.

    2. God and his acts of creation have yet to be demonstrated.

    3. Evolution does not posit that they do.

    Evolution does not violate the 2nd law of thermodynamics. As I said earlier in this thread, albeit rather sarcasticly that the Earth has an external energy source, the Sun.

    A few of my issues with evolution:

    1. It violates the second law of thermodynamics. All other fields of science recognize this fact except biology, because the presuppositions of the scientists in this discipline won't allow for an alternative.


    Well, perhaps you could explain under what circumstances the entropy of a system can decrease? Bearing in mind that the only reason your car works is because the entropy of a system can go up or down.

    As someone has pointed out we have a very large nuclear furnace 93 million miles away, our localised entropy decrease is paid for by the increase in entropy in that furnace, hence no violation in the 2nd law.
