|Creationist Thermodynamics, Again|
Posted on: April 2, 2007 6:12 PM, by Jason Rosenhouse
The folks over at Uncommon Descent have unveiled a new blogger: mathematician Granville Sewell. He's the latest know-nothing to convert a comically simplistic version of the second law of thermodynamics into an anti-evolution argument.
Of course, this is one of those shark-jumping, litmus-test arguments that tell you immediately you are dealing with a crank. The second law of thermodynamics and modern evolutionary theory are not in conflict. That is a fact, not an opinion. Anyone claiming they are in conflict is confused about at least one of them, and probably both.
I have previously dealt at length with Sewell's arguments. Let's have a look at his latest rantings.
