One time a blind date was going so badly we started talking about religion. I started making some serious science fiction origin story pooe up and he thought it wasn't a thought exercise. To that one random person I am that nutty lady he wished he could of hit in the face.

@JadesDitoyr - To elaborate on your deck of cards analogy; what you are looking for is just one specific combination of cards. An 'ordered` deck can be defined in multiple ways (e.g. ascending/descending, different order of suits), which could significantly reduce the odds of finding an ordered deck.

Additionally, population size of attempts is also important. If you went to someone`s house, and saw not just one, but several billion decks (or arbitrary large number of undefined size), one of which was `ordered`, would it still be right to assume that someone was playing solitaire? (On that note, why solitaire? why not any other card game, or maybe it was a new deck?, or maybe the owner just ordered them on a whim to check if any were missing)

I wouldn`t go so far to say that I know any definitive answer myself, but evaluating the probability of something occurring after the event is a tricky business.

yes, I did mean the 2nd

I figured as much. However if physics wasn't your focus then I`d avoid using it to attempt to disprove evolution or order arising from disorder, because the 2nd law doesn`t apply to either.

yes, I did mean the 2nd, physics was never my focus. I would normally make a joke here, but I'm fairly certain that it would instead be assumed that I was serious when saying it.

Oh, the thermodynamics thing...
Give me a break.

Yeah, the misunderstanding in all those posts makes my brain hurt. I also think he meant the 2nd law, because I'm not sure what the entropy state of a perfect crystal at absolute zero has to do with his post.

Either way it`s a fundamental misunderstanding of science at best.
