Everyone – and everything – grows older and continuously deteriorates. Anything unattended turns from order to chaos, from a high level of organization to a lower level. This is a universal truth. Consequently, people get sick and die, buildings and bridges collapse, cars break down, landscapes erode and natural resources deplete. No matter how hard we try, we will never reverse this process and “grow younger and better.” Systems constantly spiral downward to greater disorder. Fix the car, paint the house, pave the drive way over and over, yet some counterforce seems to work persistently to undo it all. This tendency is the universal law of physics known as the Law of Entropy or The Second Law of Thermodynamics.
This principle is widely considered the most thoroughly proven scientific law with overwhelming evidence all around. In many way the law of entropy is a form of decay. Its greatest power is its universal predictive quality that disorder will eventually prevail. The implications are enormous for the universe, and devastating for the evolution model.
The universe, at some point in time, will run out of useable energy! One day the sun will simply burn out and life on earth will cease. In the same way the universe itself will run out of energy to expand, and everything as we know it will end.
This contradicts the claims of evolution. As systems by the second law of thermodynamics all tend to a higher level of chaos/entropy, they can never – without help from “outside” – evolve into higher levels of organization and energy. So evolution of any system can lead only to a less organized, less sophisticated, less intelligent, less developed system. Over time humans might evolve into apes (perhaps some do), but not the other way around!
This also explains why researches have discovered thousands and thousands of species that have become extinct, but they have never found evidence of the beginning of a new species.
