The Willfully Ignorant


The second law of thermodynamics, a fundamental scientific principle stating that entropy increases over time as organized forms decay into greater states of randomness, has come under fire from conservative Christian groups, who are demanding that the law be repealed.

“What do these scientists want us teaching our children? That the universe will continue to expand until it reaches eventual heat death?” asked Christian Coalition president Ralph Reed, speaking at a rally protesting a recent Kansas Board Of Education decision upholding the law. “That’s hardly an optimistic view of a world the Lord created for mankind. The American people are sending a strong message here: We don’t like the implications of this law, and we will not rest until it has been reversed in the courts.”

The controversial law of nature, which asserts that matter continually breaks down as disorder increases and heat is lost, has long been decried by Christian fundamentalists as running counter to their religion’s doctrine of Divine grace and eternal salvation.


“Why can’t disorder decrease over time instead of everything decaying?” asked Jim Muldoon of Emporia, KS. “Is that too much to ask? This is our children’s future we’re talking about.”

“I wouldn’t want my child growing up in a world headed for total heat death and dissolution into a vacuum,” said Kansas state senator Will Blanchard (R-Hutchinson). “No decent parent would want that.”
