|Entropy is a measure of disorder in a system, first postulated by Lazare Carnot in 1803.|
Creationist scientist Henry Morris argues that the law of Entropy, also known as the Second Law of Thermodynamics, disproves evolution: "...the Second law, however, that wipes out the theory of evolution. There is a universal process of change, and it is a directional change, but it is not an upward change."
Actually entropy isn't the measure of disorder in a system, but who cares. Of course the only thing they can say about it is that is disproves evolution.
That's more accurate. Entropy can result in an increase of disorder, but I don't know if there is a rigorous definition of the word "disorder."
|Entropy developed as a way of accounting for the basic asymmetry in the conversion of work and heat. Work is easily converted into heat, but heat is not easily converted back into work. The conversion of work into heat occurs spontaneously, but the opposite conversion does not.|
|Many Creationists claim that the Second Law of Thermodynamics disproves evolution. Evolutionists deny this claim stating that the earth is not an isolated system because energy is pumped in from the sun. However, the universe as a whole is an isolated system. An isolated system never exchanges matter or energy with its surroundings. It is impossible for the total entropy of an isolated system to decrease, therefore the universe is becoming more and more disordered. In this way the Second Law of Thermodynamics disproves evolution.|
Total horse dung, of course.
But isn't creationism/ID (thanks for grouping them together for us) also a Muslim idea? No? It's only the Christian version that's not taught in schools? My bad.

Yes, if they taught in Religious studies.
Islam, hinduism and other religious ideas are taught in school.

Creationism is not scientific? This is absolute nonsense. This is what evolutionists like to think, but it is the farthest thing from the truth. What can evolutionists bring up about creationism that is non-scientific?
