Darwin countered by Newton

I especially like #2 on the list, attributed to “awesomestnerd” on “SmashBoards”:
One of the most basic laws in the universe is the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This states that as time goes by, entropy in an environment will increase. Evolution argues differently against a law that is accepted EVERYWHERE BY EVERYONE. Evolution says that we started out simple, and over time became more complex. That just isn’t possible: UNLESS there is a giant outside source of energy supplying the Earth with huge amounts of energy. If there were such a source, scientists would certainly know about it.

I have no words.

    For those who didn’t get the punchline, the answer is “the sun” and most scientists are aware of it :)

    Come to think of it, if evolution theory breaks entropy’s law, so does Creation, I’m pretty sure.
