: : How does the second law of thermodynamics play in the matter of existence, god, et all? Anyone? Theories? Opinions? Nate, H, Phil??

: : Tön

: good question, but could you make your question a bit more pointed? I'm not sure exactly where you want it to go.

: I will say that the 2LOTD is an inherent attribute to physics similar to laws as equalibrium.

: Equalibrium is the state of balance that results when two forces act equaly but in opposite directions. For example, place a drop of red dye in a cylinder of water and observe the once concentrated dye disperse evenly throughout the volume. Such is similar with 2LOTD. In the beggining of the universe (at instant) consisted of infintite heat, infinite volume, and zero density; thus infinite enthalpy.

This could be applied to the concept of God, for if it always exists, it must be perpetual, and if the argument for this is taken seriuosly then so must an infinite space. The isolation part has no bearing on an infinite universe, for in my proposal, matter is finite, thus, the "isolation" limit of energy (that there is a total sum) regardless of how spread out through the "infinite" universe it is, and I am including what lies beyond the percieved boundery of a big bang in which there is possibly more of this "energy" or as someone said on this forum resently "mega galaxies" in which big bangs happen all the time, was this you? Anyway, there is a perpetual machine, either it is God, or it is the energy of the universe itself. : Remember, (quoting the law of thermodynamics)

: "The total entropy of an isolated system can never decrease", and likewise "A perpetual motion machine of the second kind is impossible".

: This phenomenon, as well as many others, points to a finite origin in the cosmos. The 2LOTD arguement is one of many that refutes the static universe theory.
