8/30 - Humans are very complex, as is our earth, and everything about our daily existance. Science explains that things naturally tend toward entropy, but how do we explain so much complexity here on earth? Not only is there so much complexity, but according to evolution, we are continually becoming more complex. This leads us to ask the question: does an anti-entropic force exist? I don't know the answer, but it seems to me that there must be in order for our situation to prevail. Maybe the "super energy" that I proposed below is such a force. Maybe it is God, or a product of God. Or maybe it is exclusively scientific, yet appears Godly to us. Another thing, maybe the amount of complexity on earth is actually nothing compared to the entire universe of disorder, and we are living in a relatively puny "occurance of order." Millions of years of disorder does not seem to be puny, but it may be on the scale of the universe.
Here is a different interpretation on a more bitter note. Our world today, although mostly populated by "believers of a higher power," is a paganistic one. Money, power, greed, and self are our gods, and those with the most of these rule. And does this lead to contentment? No. Does it lead to destruction? Yes.
