New Defender's Study Bible Notes
14:14 gathered up again. The inevitability of death is, quite incisively, here compared to water spilt on the ground, both being irreversible processes operating (as do all real processes) in accordance with the universal law of increasing entropy (or disorganization), also known as the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This ubiquitous scientific principle of increasing disorganization is clearly opposed to the anti-scientific theory of evolution, despite the widespread commitment of intellectuals to evolutionism. Only a miracle of creation, requiring the divine intervention of the Creator Himself, could suspend or reverse the law of entropy in a given process or system (e.g., restoration to life after death, gathering spilled water back up into its container). Evolution—with its cruelty and waste—is so contrary to God’s nature that He could never be responsible for it.
