This is because... (scientifically valid argument here)
according to the second law of thermodynamics ''the entropy of an isolated system
which is not in equilibrium will tend to increase over time, approaching a maximum value at equilibrium.''
earth is an isolated system, suspended in a vacuum, the second law of thermodynamics states that in these circumstances it is the tendency of nature
to become less complex and more random until an equilibrium is achieved.
Instead, we contend that the phenomenon can best be explained as the result of Divine Fiat, because... (another scientifically valid
in order for this system to produce a result by which both complexity was increased and randomness was suppressed an outside intervention or influence
This can be tested by means of the following experiment... (Exhaustive description of experiment, including an explanation of how it addresses the
problem. Note that the experiment will have to be ingeniously designed to eliminate all other explanations for the phenomenon apart from
an experiment designed in order to assess the likelyhood of a complex system initiating spontaneously in an enclosed system. as a control the same
system will be initiated with outside intervention.
take two clocks, disassemble them, place one in a jar, seal the lid, await spontaneous reassembly, take the other clock to a clockmaker (allow outside
intervention), wait for reassembly for advised period of time.
given the relative lack of complexity of a clock compared to a cell, this should be seen as a eminently fair comparison, if not biased in favour of
If our hypothesis is true -- and only if it is true -- the following results may be expected from the experiment.
while the clock in the jar increases in entropy as the constituent parts slowly oxidize over time the clock that has been given to the clockmaker
should be repaired and working better than ever within a couple of weeks.
We ran the experiment. Here are the results. They tally well with our expectations (see #5 above).
Therefore we conclude that GDI.
We invite others to assess our arguments, repeat our experiment, and verify the results for themselves.
okay, i admit i haven't tried this experiment, i think someone else might have, but not me,however, if any of you disagree with my expected
results, i will. i'm so confident i will even allow anyone here to specify any period of time for me to leave the clock in its jar, i will even allow
anyone here to pick the clockmaker that i present the other clock to. i certainly encourage anyone who wishes to try this for themselves.
i'm not even a creationist or an id'er by the way, but i know for a fact that science contradicts itself as often as christianity with-in fields,
and far more so across fields. i'm sick of seeing pseudo-intellectual evolutionists, who just don't have a deep enough understanding of it to
realise the contradictions, try to bash people who subscribe to a different theory.
evolution is just another theory.
it's full of holes, it doesn't explain everything.
there isn't a complete fossil record for any, i repeat, any, animal on earth or any, and i mean any, animal that has ever been on earth.
if anyone is so sure of evolution, as a theory, that they can provide a better and more complete experiment than the one i have outlined above to
proove evolution, i will transfer one hundred dollars to them via pay-pal. seriously.
