The 2nd law is about organized complexity, not entropy (Talk.Origins)
- The second law of thermodynamics allows higher order (lower entropy) to appear locally, but it still disallows organized complexity. For example, it allows highly ordered arrangements such as "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. . ." to originate, but not complex ordered arrangements such as the words on this page.

CreationWiki response: It is agreed that this claim is erroneous, but then again it is not a claim actually made by a Creationist. If you check Talk Origins' reference you will not find this claim as stated. Talk Origins seems to have worded this claim so as to make it look totally unreasonable. This is a case of misrepresentation. It may not have been an attempt to deceive but simply a result of Talk Origins' bias against Creationists
