Well, it's really interesting to them because it sounds really awesome. "The Law of Thermodynamics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FUCK YEAH! TRUMP CARD! NO RENEGING ON THE SCIENCE YOU GUYS PUT SO MUCH FAITH IN!"
it sounds all official and scientific and crap. Which it is, BTW. So, creationists find something scientific, anything, that can be used "against" the atheists, (101.99% of the misrepresenting the science involved).
RULES FOR THEISTS TO BEAT ATHEISTS USING SCIENCE
Step 1: Find an article about a particular scientific theory or law in some sort of creationist website or other form of literature.
--The Theist typically runs to Answers in Genesis
or Kent Hovind's website
Step 2: Read the heading and the first couple sentences of that article.
Step 3: Blindly agree with that article
--It usually doesn't cross the theist's mind to cross-source or fact check the article, because to the theist, what good are facts? Wikipedia is not a theist's friend when it comes to science. There's just too much truth involved, even on a site gets edited occasionally
. (Just tossing this out there: go to the bottom of the page and check the sources wikipedia uses!)
Step 4: Post on an Internet message board like WWGHA acting as if you're an expert in physics or biology.
Step 5: Ignore rebuttal or errors found in said article that are presented by those who are more qualified to discuss the article and actually understand said scientific theory or law.
Step 6: Pretend step 4 never happened, or
claim victory anyway.
In short: The theist just talks out of his or her ass. I wonder if skep actually knows anything in-depth about the Second Law of Thermodynamics to even carry out a discussion about it?!?
I doubt he does.
