“My (Nobel nominated) college professor used to ask a rhetorical question in his thermo class, ‘what is the entropy change of a cow after the butcher put a 22 calibre bullet through the brain?'”
ID proponents and creationists should not use the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics to support ID. Appropriate for Independence Day in the USA is my declaration of independence and disavowal of 2nd Law arguments in support of ID and creation theory.

Or is it just a slow news day in June?
Multiverse, etc., proponents rattle on against philosophy – principally because philosophers can easily see through their pretenses by simple acts of logic.
“The scientists’ calculations showed that the quantum correlation between the bits can be so strong that they cannot be correlated with anything existing previously.”
Once again, Darwinism’s questionable relationship to thermodynamics is the issue.
” Social scientists would be better off doing what they do best: thinking deeply about what prompts human beings to behave the way they do.”
“He had heard these arguments before and wasn’t convinced by them. Pauli wanted to see calculated probabilities for large-scale evolution.”
