Entropy explained, defined:

Entropy (S) it is a measure of "disorder" or randomness of a system; the measure of the unspent energy available to do work in a system; and a merasure of the information of a system. . The higher the "disorder", the higher the entropy value. No entropy means "no disorder" and maximum entropy means "maximum disorder" Entropy than is the measure of "loss" of order, information and, usable energy available to do work in a system. The most established laws and observation in science and life generally is that the "entropy" of the universe and everything else is increasing with time. Meaning, cosmic order, information and usable energy is diminishing with time. This reality makes a clear undisputed statement about both the initial state of the universe and its final state. Namely, that cosmic order, inherent information and the usable energy available to do work was at its optumum or premium state when the universe STARTED OUT. And that the uiverse will become increasingly "disorded" with time, as order, information and usable energy evaporates and disappears. At with point the universe will have reached a final state of thermal equilibrium, or heat death.

 

 

entropy This cosmic increasing disorder and entropy has far reaching philosophical and scientific ramifications, not only in regard to the existyence of God, but also in regard to the initial state of the universe and all else. What all this means is that the universe and all else was "of necessity" at its optumum or premium state of "maximum" order, information and usable energy right at the very beginning. And thus the universe and all elsev was fully ordered, fuly formed and fully functional from the very outset: Affirmed by the fact that everything in the universe is in fact becoming increasingly disordered and undergoing radiometric and genetic decay. Along with the ongoing loss of biological information and species . How then do we equate this opbservational reality with the highly "treasured", vigourously defended and untrenched "paradigm" of cosmological and biological evolution: Founded on the hard-core atheism of "philosophical" naturalism and raw materialism. Based on the "metaphysical" belief that the self assembling universe and all else is becaming more structured and ordered with time. All those committed to cosmological and biological paradfigm of an "evolving" universe are faced with a cosmic crisis. Because a running down and dying universe cannot at the same time become increasingly more ordered and organized .
   
entropy increase

The refusal of the global scientific community to face the philosophical and scientific reality of a universe from a an initial state of optumum order, information and usable energy, and is now heading downhill towards ever increasing disorder can only be explain by the massive commitment that the scientific world has towards materialism. Namely, establishing the unproven "blind faith" metaphysical religious assumption that "philosophical" naturalism is "true". And that ALL REALITY" can, and will, be explained by natural propcesses and godless causes alone, without regard to God and the Supernatural. The enormity and magnitude of the intellectual and technological resources that the scientific world has ploughed into this quest for the godless "Theory of Everything" begs belief. It has taken decades of rigerous and relentless time and effort to develop and assemble the Standard models. Countless hours and technical and financial resourcesx have been ploughed into developing and testing hypothetical theories, potential models, theoretical constructs, and "mind experiments". All accompanied by complex mathematical constructs, formula manipulation, fudge factors, and a host of other mathematical inventions, and a grab bag of ideas used to 'verify' predictions. Involving a mountain of researh papers, PhD disitations and publications

   
Cosmic Decay This is known as the "priority of the paradigm" . Where the scientific community is so commmitted to the paradigm of cosmological and biological evolution, and the metaphysical worldview of godless naturalism and materialism, that established realities involving entropy and the second law of Thermodynamics can be totally ignored and even denied. The vunerability of scientrists and intellectuals to deception and self-deception has well noted by the respected U.S Department of Defence advisor on "Deception", Dr Ray Hayman. Hayman says that anyone can be deceived, or self deceived. Says Hayman, the more intelligent you are the more easily you are deceived. With scientists being particularly vulnerable to deception, particulary if the deception was in the right "context". The notion that metaphysical naturalism is true, and that science is the only real sourch of knowledge and truth, has now permiated the scientific world as the number of scientists having an atheistic materialist worldview dominated all major scientific institutions.

However, the fully implications of entropy and the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics did not go unnoticed. Nothed physicist and well know science author, Dr Paul Davies, recognized that something didn't fit. As there as was major paradoxical problem with the universal commitment to cosmological and biological evolutionary notion that the universe was becoming more ordered and structured with time, when in fact the universe was becoming more disordered with time, even in a opened system such as the earth. Where rediometric decay, loss of biological information and order was continuing on unchecked. States physicist Paul Davie in God And The New Physics - Why there is a universe.:

"Mystery surrounds how order has emerged out of chaos in the universe. The presently orderly structures and complex activity has somehow arisen from featureless ferment in the big bang, in apparent defiance of the second law of thermodynamics which requires that order decreases, rather than increases, over time. The resolution of the paradox may have something to do with gravity."    

   
Entropy Final

The last word on Thermodynamics and Entropy comes from the assigned university text on Thermodynamics, University of New South Wales. In, Fundamentals of Classical Thermodynamics, Gordon Van Wylen concludes:

“The final point to be made is that the second law of thermodynamics and the principle of the increase of entropy have philosophical implications. Does the second law of thermodynamics apply to the universe as a whole? Are there processes unknown to us that occur somewhere in the universe, such as “continual creation” that have a decrease in entropy associated with them, and thus offset the continual increase in entropy that is associated with  natural processes that are known to us?  The second law is valid for the universe ( of course we do not know if the universe can be considered as a isolated system), how did it get to a state of low entropy (i.e. an initial state of maximum order)? On the other end of the scale, if all processes know to us have an increase in entropy associated with them, what is the future of the natural world as we know it? Quite obviously it is impossible to give conclusive answers to these questions on the basis of the second law of thermodynamics alone. However we see the second law of thermodynamics as the description of the prior and continuing work of a creator, who also holds the answer to our future destiny and that of the universe.” -   Fundamentals of Classical Thermodynamics, John Wiley & Son – New York, 1994.
