I remember falling for the claim that evolution was incompatible with the Second Law of Thermodynamics when I was a teenager. I apparently lacked the ability to realize that the world’s scientists were not so incompetent as to miss something so basic, nor did I consider that the fact that mainstream scientists were engaging in productive research while the charlatans who were spouting these criticisms were not collecting their Nobel prize for overturning widely-held scientific views.
Young-earth creationism isn’t just wrong. It isn’t just a deception. It is diabolically sinful.
