If this claim of Morris were true (which it isn't) it would undo another
standard YEC argument, that the 2d Law rules out evolution (which is also false).
But if both statements were true, & the 2d Law were only a consequence of the Fall, then
it would not rule out evolution before the Fall. Thus life in general, & humanity
in particular, could have evolved before Sin came into the world.
I don't think much of this argument myself, since it depends on two incorrect
claims. But it does bring out the carelessness of some YECs.
