Like most things... hindsight is 20/20 and on this subject it is better than that! Every observable model we have in the known Universe portrays this phenomenon... increased entropy... or "the thermodynamic property toward equilibrium/average /homogenization/dissipation"
of every energized system we know of. This is simply the degradation of the force and order of objects. "(H)otter, more dynamic areas of a system lose heat/energy while cooler areas (e.g., space) get warmer / gain energy; molecules of a solvent or gas tend to evenly distribute; material objects wear out; organisms die; the universe is cooling down."
And it is this undisputed Second law of thermodynamics
, observable in all or our know Universe; that paints a perfect historical order, that we have diminished from. Simpler... all things are less "ordered" than when we began.
"The second law of thermodynamics states that the amount of energy in a system that is available to do work is decreasing. Entropy increases as available energy decreases. In other words, the purely natural tendency of things is to move toward chaos, not order, and available energy necessary for work is lost (mostly as heat) in this process. Eventually, the universe will run down and all life and motion will cease because all the energy that exists will be, more or less, evenly distrubuted so that no work can be performed and no life and exist. This is the natural tendency of all things. Batteries run down, machines break, buildings crumble, roads decay, living things die, etc. Left to the natural state, all things would eventually cease to function."http://carm.org/entropy-and-causality-us...
Basically, if we were to rewind this "clock" we would find an ordered Universe... for all intents an purposes at it's operational "peak". It is a logical observation that a reverse to the process that degrades everything, would indeed "upgrade" everything. And if we do the math on this... our beginning our Genesis... was absolutely perfect! This is the only OBSERVABLE model we have. And if we are talking (observable/repeatable) science, and not mere conjectural nonsense; then we should all be able to agree, that our beginning was not an evolution. Here are some 'slick' points to ponder...
"by Matt Slick
1) The universe is not infinitely old because it has not "run down."
2) Because the universe had a beginning, it is not infinite in size.
3) All events have causes.
4) Since the universe is finite and had a beginning, and there cannot be an infinite number of regressions of causes to bring it into existence, there must be a single uncaused cause of the universe.
5) This uncaused cause is supernatural.
6) The Bible teaches that God is uncaused, is not part of the universe, created the universe, and is incredibly powerful.
7) Therefore, the God of the Bible is the uncaused cause of the universe."http://carm.org/entropy-and-causality-us...
After a grueling discussion with an Atheist over these principles, all he could say was... "That doesn't prove God Created it!" True enough, however the Bible is the only historical document that supports the scientific evidence... not even the textbooks affirm good science! Now I concede that the Bible is no "science book" ...but neither is the trash in the public school student's hands! When an education system deliberately buries evidence, or is merely discarding evidence for fear of where the inevitable
conclusion will lead... that's NOT science... it's RELIGIOUS!
I can't wait for some dyed-in-the-wool Darwinist to retort... "Evolution is only a biological process, within a greater... blaa blaa blaa blaaaaa" ...Really? Like the question that stumped Richard Dawkins on this issue, would stump the fated Darwin today...
"Can you give an example of a genetic mutation or an evolutionary process which can be seen to increase the information in the genome?"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaKryi360..."Encouragingly, in the year that has passed since then there have been almost half a million viewings of this video, by people from around the world. That's several hundred thousand people who have witnessed for themselves the utter inability of evolution's leading apologist to account for genetic information."
...since then there has been considerably more than "half a million viewings of this video" ...there is now almost 2 and a half million viewings of this video, and still no answer from any religious Darwinian for the basic question posed. The question should have been asked rhetorically so Dawkins could have understood it. OK, I am a bit "chippy" but at least my gall is unmitigated! With all the ad hominem attacks and misdirection I have heard on this issue... even down to the "editing" of the video; it's all merely an attempt to dismiss the fundamental problem with "evolution"
..."making things better"... in a fallen world.
The fact is the data supports that "all this" was made perfect and in order.
AND if not by God... then by what or whom??
"What is the Big Bang Theory?
According to the Theory of Evolution, 18 to 20 billion years ago all the matter in the universe was compressed into a tiny little dot. As the dot began to spin faster and faster, it finally exploded, releasing all of the matter and energy into the universe, producing everything we see today. That explosion of matter and energy is known as The Big Bang..."
To quote a US political/science/religious prisoner (Kent Hovind)... "these fairy-tales all start out the same way... "Long long long long ago, and far far away....." !:]
