Quote# 453

I'd be happy to discuss Gould or Dawkins with you. But first you must tackle evolution's problems with the laws of thermodynamics.....this could take you a while....

You assume I just visit creationist leaning sites? Did you bother reading my citations?

Since were trading sites, I suggest you visit www.icr.org

You know what I find funny?
That those guys deny evoultion but at the same time firmly believe in the laws of thermodynamics!
That's cherry-picking scientific knowledge for ya!

It's funny to note that if Thermodynamics worked the way Creationists claim, no chemical process could ever happen.

Of course evolution defies the second law of thermodynamics. For it to work you would need a big energy source outside this planet that supplied enough energy for local changes.

A big energy source ? hmmm what could it possibly be ? oh well, I will go work on my tan . ;)

duh !

I'm not in the habit of discussing science with morons who don't understand it.

What problems?

"I'd be happy to discuss Gould or Dawkins with you."

- Which of their works have you read?


"But first you must tackle evolution's problems with the laws of thermodynamics.....this could take you a while...."

- Actually its been done, lots of times. Those who actually understand evolution and thermodynamics know that there are no problems between them.


"You assume I just visit creationist leaning sites?"

- So far I haven't seen anything to dispute that assertion.


"Did you bother reading my citations?"

- As creationists haven't come up with any new arguments since the 50's, I hardly see the point.


"Since were trading sites, I suggest you visit www.icr.org"

- And thus, my previous point is proven

What problems?"

To these fundies? I know this,,,The Sun means absolutely nothing and couldn't impart energy to Earth. This is their Thermodynamic Law opinion, redneck farmers yet, this is the shit they must accept.

If you ask them what's destroying their shingles, burning their skin or just making it really hot today,,,they've been trained to believe THAT'S NOT ENOUGH ENERGY.

"But first you must tackle evolution's problems with the laws of thermodynamics.....this could take you a while.... "

Challenge accepted.

Evolution has no problems with the laws of thermodynamics; it states that life began with a series of chemical processes probably triggered by lightning striking the early Earth's ocean. The strawman version ("Evolutionists think life came from nothing!") does, indeed, have problems with thermodynamics, but it's a strawman, not the actual theory.

That took me less than a minute to type. I win.

the 2nd law of thermodynamics only applies to a closed system, which the earth is not.

The ToE has absolutely no qualms with any laws of thermodynamics. Hey, whadyaknow, it only took a few seconds.

There's a pile of disorganized cups on a table.
I stack them in a pattern.
Now, did I just break the Second Law of Thermodynamics?

Why not the other way around? Why is the problem always with evolution?
How do you know that the laws of thermodynamics are reliable?

If you had visited some scientific leaning sites, you wouldn't have posed such a stupid "challenge".

@Blarghonius:
You broke the creationists version of it.
