Entropy and Thermodynamics

And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

(Genesis 3:17) KJV

If entropy is why the world decays into rubble then how are DNA replication and the process of evolution exempt? They aren’t, but that’s the premise of the popular science narrative of godless existence (SciPop).

It’s ironic that atheist science trolls (ASTs) instinctively accuse us of breaking the laws of Physics, while blissfully unaware that we’ve accounted for them with meticulous precision while their paradigm flaunts them.

We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.

Matty’s Razor


Entropy is a thermodynamic quantity representing the unavailability of a system’s thermal energy for conversion into mechanical work, often interpreted as the degree of disorder or randomness in the system; a lack of order or predictability; a gradual decline into disorder.

– Entropy, definition

Life has the property of being able to adapt, change and become better: more fit. What this property of life might be science is remarkably quiet about. Scientists prefer instead to quibble over irrelevant minutiae which are part of the paradigm they’ve accepted in faith.

The truth is, DNA replication and evolution aren’t exempt from entropy. Entropy is the reason why our genetic code has been decaying for about 6,000 years, and why there is considerably less reproductive fitness and vigor in the human genome.

Just as the cells in Adam’s body began to wear out, the atoms, molecules and structures of which the world is made also began to wear out. These can’t be replaced the way that cells in a human body can. Once a change to the state of something inorganic happens, it stays happened. It can’t be changed back.

If we collect up sticks to make a fire, the fire changes the sticks into ash. We can’t change the ash back into sticks, that’s impossible. This is an example of entropy: the decay of creation. When a tree pulls nutrients out of the soil in order to produce fruit, the nutrients are gone from the soil. If we want more fruit, somehow the nutrients have to be put back. This takes energy from somewhere. It also takes effort.

Faith is believing in something that you can’t see, because of evidence.

– Faith, definition


The first law of thermodynamics is a version of the law of conservation of energy, adapted for thermodynamic systems. The law of conservation of energy states that the total energy of an isolated system is constant; energy can be transformed from one form to another, but can be neither created nor destroyed.

The first law is often formulated Δ U = Q – W


In the garden of Eden the trees produced a bountiful supply of fruit with absolutely no effort. God allowed this to happen, it was his will. The fall of man caused him to withdraw part of his power and let natural forces rule the world. Now it was going to take effort to be able to reap a harvest.

We can burn a tree to make ash that we can put into the soil to replace nutrients. That’s going to mean that our tree will produce fruit, but we had to destroy a tree to make it happen. It came at a cost. The first law of thermodynamics has a firm grasp on matter, and the law of entropy states that any physical systems will always tend towards a state of lower energy.

And time is running out.
