The Second Law of Thermodynamics, which cannot be broken, refers to the observed nature of the
Universe - it is decaying; there is more disorder as time passes.
As time advances the Universe becomes less ordered. Stars are burning up their fuel. Saturn's rings
are moving away from the planet. In fact, the rings can't be billions of years old, because at the
current rate of movement they would have dissipated away by now. The Earth's moon is moving
further away, about 3 inches per year. At this rate, 1.2 billion years ago the moon was whizzing
around just above the surface of the Earth. Maybe that explains what happened to the tall dinosaurs?
They got 'mooned' ...
Another example of this conundrum is the Earth's magnetic field. Dr. Thomas Barnes, Emeritus
Professor of Physics at the University of Texas at El Paso, has published in this field. Scientific
observations since 1829 have shown that the earth's magnetic field has been measurably decaying at
an exponential rate. This would mean that its strength 20,000 years ago would approximate that of a
magnetic star. Under those conditions many of the atoms necessary for life processes could not
form. These data demonstrate that earth's entire history is young, within a few thousand of years.

NASA scientist Robert Jastro wrote "The Second Law of Thermodynamics applied to the Cosmos,
indicates that the Universe is running down like a clock. If it is running down, there must have been
a time when it was fully wound up. The next obvious question is - who wound it up?"
Dr Gordon van Wylen, Engineer and author, said
"the Second Law tends to increase my conviction
that there is a Creator who has the answer for the future destiny of man and the Universe".
"The Big Bang" is the name given to the hypothetical explosion that occurred 15 to 18 billion years
ago according to the Evolutionary model. Explosions lead to chaos - not order - they cause a
random distribution -
spontaneous degeneration not spontaneous generation. The Theory of Evolution
is directly opposed to the Second Law of Thermodynamics.
Psalm 102:25-26 "In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the
work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all
wear out like a garment. Like
clothing you will change them and they will be discarded.".
The Psalmist wrote these words thousands of years before the Second Law of Thermodynamics was
defined, but his poetic description of the Universe "wearing out" sums it up very well.
