|Seven reasons why many young-earth creationists deny the Big Bang|
At first glance, the big bang appears to violate the second law of thermodynamics, for out of the seeming disorder of hydrogen gas arises the seeming complexity of galaxies, stars, and planets. The most basic statement of the second law is that the entropy (disorder) of a closed system continuously increases. What these individuals do not comprehend is that the formation of galaxies, stars, and planets out of hydrogen gas does increase the overall entropy of the universe. The universe today manifests much greater entropy than when it was in its early hydrogen gas state.
