I consider this video to be the simplest and clearest presentation of that argument.
Are the three “cardinal problems” of biology still almost untouched?
That is what makes it so different from other phenomena in our universe, and why it demands a very different sort of explanation.
In my 2000 Mathematical Intelligencer article “A Mathematician’s View of Evolution,” I compared the development of the genetic code of life with the development of a computer program, such as my finite element code PDE2D.
If you want to show that evolution does not violate the second law, you cannot simply say, sure, evolution is astronomically improbable, but the Earth is an open system, so there is no problem.
