Evolution: the non-science

The Intellectual Conservative cracked the case. We can all stop talking about the 'evolution' thing--it's all a load of shit, and here's why:

"Very few scientists have considered or pondered the implications of the law of entropy upon the theory of evolution."

Well, if you've done your homework, you know that evolution has ripped entropy a new one. Not that this nutjob is saying anything new, but the concluding thought is...different:

"Belief in neither evolution or creation is necessary to the actual study of science itself."

Because everyone knows that evolution is not science. So, clearly evolutionary biologists do not need to believe in evolution in order to study it. Besides, who says that life is becoming more ordered? The concept of speciation, that all life originated from a single form, might suggest that life is becoming less ordered.
