Quote from: link above"as one goes forward in time, the net entropy (degree of disorder) of any isolated or closed system will always increase (or at least stay the same)."
Quote from: zorkan on February 08, 2024, 02:25:04 PMA closed system does not expel matter, but I'll try to take it out.
Quote from: zorkan on February 09, 2024, 12:39:31 PMThanks to your doggerel, I don't think we're too far apart, but I'll make this point.
QuoteAny system on earth gets its energy from the sun.Yet all life is doomed because of entropy.
QuoteHowever much we try to replace lost energy with food we will fail in the end.
QuoteFood is of lower grade, having been expelled by other life systems.
QuoteIf an engine is constantly maintained, it will still fail at some point.
Quote from: zorkan on February 09, 2024, 04:47:07 PMIf you believe that god created man in his image, then god must also be subjected to decay and death according to the laws of thermodynamics.
QuoteIs god an open or closed deity?
QuoteWhy did god bother to create over one trillion galaxies when only heaven, earth, sun, moon, humans and their food would do if all his people are here on earth?
QuoteStatistically, the 2nd law is an inequality.
QuoteThat also appears to question god's perfection.Why would god allow his cosmos to burn up in a heat death, leaving only radiation at some point in the future when the very last star has flickered out?
QuoteIf god is "beyond" the universe, then by what means does he itneract with it enough to know when you covet your neighbour's wife?
Quote from: zorkan on February 13, 2024, 12:02:05 PMIf god is on the outside looking in, then god is both inside and outside according to your view that all systems are open.
