The next great form of evidence in favor of intelligent design are the laws of nature. The laws of nature (especially the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics) reflect the intelligent design view that the universe is deteriorating; as opposed to the universe getting better as the years go on, which evolution gladly claims. According to the All About Science website, “the second law of thermodynamics is commonly known as the law of Increased Entropy.” This site also goes on to explain that Entropy is “defined as the measure of unusable energy within a closed, isolated system.” Basically then, the second law of thermodynamics is the law of an increase of unusable energy. The main point of this law is pointing to the fact that the universe had a beginning, which is also based on the first law that points to the fact that the universe began with a total amount of mass energy. The first two laws go hand in hand with each other. According to the author in the Creation Answers Book, “If the total amount of mass-energy is limited, and the amount of usable energy is decreasing, then the universe cannot have existed forever, otherwise it would already have exhausted all usable energy and reached what is known as heat death (Batten 18).” This is a true fact that determines the universe had a beginning and is slowly beginning to deteriorate. The earth is practically in the same boat as the universe. The amount of mass energy on planet earth, which is the result of the earth’s magnetic field, is slowly deteriorating one step at a time because of the increase of entropy. The increase of unusable energy on the earth’s magnetic field is growing, while the amount of overall energy is decreasing. Bingo! One more vote for the cause of intelligent design. Overall though, this is a major proponent to the support of intelligent design, which actually does use scientific evidence for the defense of its theory.
If the universe had a beginning, evolutionists hold fast to the Big Bang Theory. What is the problem with the Big Bang Theory? The complex design of the universe was created by a bang of cosmic energy. Honest evolutionists are quickly to admit that they don’t know what caused the big bang to start the evolutionary process of the universe, while some others think that marshmallow man from some other unknown planet started the big bang. Then, who or what created marshmallow man and that other unknown planet? It all comes down to pure logic.
As A.J. Monty White says in the New Answers Book, “All logic predicts that if you have nothing, nothing will happen. It is against all known logic and all laws of science to believe that the universe is the product of nothing (Ham 287).” The big bang theory is worthless based on the logistical fact that if you have nothing, nothing will happen. It is so obvious to anyone that a computer did not come about by strange electrical forces of random nothingness. It just doesn’t happen. In the overall scheme of things, logistical facts and scientific evidence has accomplished and will continue to drive home the irrefutable evidence for the case of intelligent design. End Part 2
