A Useful Tool for Debating Creationists

So I’ve been insanely busy lately, which is why it has been ages since my last post (the same seems to be true of my fellow Teen Skepchicks).  Anyway, I break the silence to point out something that you probably have already seen, but it’s worth mentioning just in case you haven’t.  Over at Pharyngula, PZ Myers has a great post discussing an article on Evolution and Entropy.  The second law of thermodynamics is often used as an argument against evolution, but the article that PZ discusses explains that evolution does not, in fact, violate this law.  Since many High School students have misconceptions about what exactly entropy is (it’s not ACTUALLY a measure of disorder), I’m betting the information in PZ’s post will be very useful for all you Teen Skepchicks who like to get in arguments with creationists ;).

    The real way to debate creationists is to not debate them. It’s pretty much a waste of time since I think pretty much all creationists don’t even know what evolution is.
