DaveScot pulls out his chalkboard and presumes to lecture Pixie, who, unlike DaveScot, knows what he's talking about.

In general 2LoT applies to gradients of all kinds.
Wrong.

It also applies to information gradients.
In general, wrong.

Intelligent processes can create information gradients. For instance - absent intelligence the library of congress, a highly ordered set of information, would not exist with only energy from the sun input into the system and no intelligent agency directing how that energy is utilized to decrease entropy.
So, according to Dave, the 2LoT applies to information, but intelligent agents can decrease information entropy, thus violating the 2LoT.  Dave has been making a fool of himself for over a year with this assertion, but he seems unconcerned.

My only formal training being in physics, and not biology, it's especially amusing for me to watch them play physicist.
