We will all remember Isaac Asimov in our own way. My tribute will consist
of posting the following words of wit and wisdom,
"In kindergarten terms the second law of thermodynamics says
that all spontaneous change is in the direction of increasing
disorder - that is, in a 'downhill' direction. There can be no
spontaneous buildup of the complex from the simple, therefore,
because that would be moving 'uphill'. According to the
creationist argument, since, by the evolutionary process,
complex forms of life evolve from simple forms, that process
defies the second law, so creationism must be true.
Such an argument implies that this clearly visible fallacy is
somehow invisible to scientists, who must therefore be flying
in the face of the second law through sheer perversity.
Scientists, however, do know about the second law and they are
not blind. It's just that an argument based on kindergarten
terms is suitable only for kindergartens."
