Blasphemous Blogging: The Blog of Edwin Kagin

Blasphemy is the crime of making fun of ridiculous beliefs others hold sacred. This blog is about satire, truth, inquiry, and critical thinking. It is about enjoying life before death. It is about how some try to control many through their notions about a make believe supernatural world and imaginary rewards and punishments after death. This blog says that blasphemy is a good thing, a healthy thing, and a good antidote to harmful superstition. This blog is about freedom. Edwin.

Present U. S. Government is Proof of Law of Entropy

Someone trying to convince me that evolution is wrong, and that the religious idea of "Intelligent Design" is correct, wrote, in now familiar fallacious argument: "The law of entropy, which governs all matter, teaches that the net direction of the universe is always ever downward towards greater disorder, disorganization, and chaos - not greater order and complexity."

Another way of more correctly stating the law of entropy is to say that in a closed system things that previously worked just fine go toward ever increasing disorganization and chaos. An example of this is the present, and hopefully temporary, government of the United States. Therein we can see entropy at work. If this were not so, arguments against evolution would be dismissed as the nonsense they are. Under the theocrats, we live in a closed system that is taking us toward ever greater disorganization and chaos.
