Re: More idiocy
What is peculiar is a lay person's refusal to give up on this misconception even when confronted with real science. Counter examples of this goofy restatement of entropy are staring you right in the face. The freezer in your refrigerator will reduces the entropy of its interior as long as you put in warm stuff, close the door and supply electricity.
There is an even simpler example. All of us on these forums started life as a single cell and over a 9 month period we developed into a multicellular, well organized human. If the same thing can not occur over millions of years, then how can it occur in 9 months? Embryonic development appears to be a much more serious violation of the creationist 2nd Law of Thermodynamics than evolution is.

Borel's Law tells us that anything with a probability less than 1 in 10^50 is "mathematically impossible."
Let's see if that is true.
If you shuffle a deck of cards and then lay them out one by one the order of those cards is 1 in 52! or 1 in 8x10^67. According to you, each and every time we do this little experiment we end up looking at a mathematical impossibility.
