>>Dear Sirs,
>>I am an American missionary in Kiev, Ukraine. I have been reading in the
>>creation evolution debate for some time and have some scientific questions I
>>wonder if you could help me with. If you do not answer questions by E-mail,
>>perhaps you can direct me to someone who can help me. Thanks for any
>>direction you can give.
>>I am leaning toward an old earth perspective and feel like many young earth
>>creation scientific arguments are not strong.
>>One of the arguments of the ICR has to do with the Second Law of
>>Thermodynamics. In his commentary on Genesis, Henry Morris says that this law
>>is the scientific expression of the curse that God placed on the universe as a
>>result of the fall. I was wondering if you could tell me, are there any
>>beneficial aspects to the Second Law. Would the Second Law have been
>>beneficial or even necessary in the perfect environment of the garden of Eden?
>>Or is the Law simply as the ICR describes it, a law of decay?
>>If you could answer this question, I would appreciate it.
>>Mark McDonnel
