evolution supposedly does the opposite

there are several issues:
1. second law only applies to closed systems.
2. even in a closed system it wouldn't disprove evolution because religious zealots have god interfere in it. therefore, even then it wouldn't mean evolution is wrong, just that there is someone triggering it from outside
3. you cannot apply this law to living organisms anyway.
it is just an attempt by religious ignorant people to sound sciencey to other religious ignorant people. when kent hovind mentions the second law of thermodynamics, bubba the redneck creationist marvels at how smart kent is.
