    Doesn't the the 2nd law of thermodynamic explain that order does not spontaneously occur?

    I see no difference between evolutionist and creationist. Maybe we are violating laws but these laws contradict one another. On the other hand we just assume that someone designed it. (god, aliens, higher beings etc)

    The second Law of Thermodynamics simply states that entropy (disorder) on the whole never decreases. If the order of something increases in a system, the disorder must rise somewhere else at the very least to create a net change of zero, if not increase the disorder. Applying this principle to the argument of evolution vs. creation is something I see quite often, but I believe is a tricky argument to make either way. I've seen the law cited by both sides, and neither was a particularly solid argument.
