A new study has shown that entropy (or thermodyamic disorder) actually creates orderly and complex crystals.
This ought to be the final proof that the creationist argument from entropy is FALSE. Their argument goes something like this:
Evolution violates the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which states that everything tends toward disorder, while evolutionists claim that throughout history life has become more orderly. Therefore, the Second Law disproves evolution.
I refuted this argument as follows on page 120 of my book, Atheism and Naturalism:
This totally misunderstands what ‘disorder’ in the thermodynamic sense is. Thermodynamic ‘Disorder’ is simply energy that is not available for use. Evolution does not violate this law because usable energy is supplied to living things by the sun.
Now it looks like we all have something easy to point to to totally blow the creationist argument out of the water and show that they are fundamentally wrong in their interpretation of 'entropy'.
