undirected energy flow through the alleged primordial soup
“Undirected energy just speeds up destruction. Just standing out in the sun won’t make you more complex—the human body lacks the mechanisms to harness raw solar energy. If you stood in the sun too long, you would get skin cancer, because the sun’s undirected energy will cause mutations. (Mutations are copying errors in the genes that nearly always lose information). Similarly, undirected energy flow through an alleged primordial soup will break down the complex molecules of life faster than they are formed.”
I'm corresponding with a good friend of mine who's an ardent creationist without a mind of his own. I'm doing pretty well in my rebuttal to his ridiculous copy-and-paste e-mail from answersingenesis.com, but I need a bit of help on the last part.
I didn't see anything referenced on talkorigins, so maybe someone here could lend a hand in explaining this?
