This Theory Explained for its misuse is common for the evolutionist. It is accurate but slick in its presentation. It leaves itself an out if you read it with the word phenomena.
Just because something is observable does not mean it is fully explainable. This is the wiggle room the evolutionist needs to keep their theory as the only acceptable form of knowledge describing our origin. Yet in all of this I have never heard why there can be laws of physics that had to be violated to make it possible. The 2nd law of thermodynamics had to be violated for the theory of evolution to move from idea to fact. Things had to go from disorder to order for it to have happened. Oh, I do get explanations, but they are point of view, not based upon the law they firmly believe in.

..."The 2nd law of thermodynamics had to be violated for the theory of evolution to move from idea to fact..."
Jeez-O-Pete I absolutely HATE this line when it appears. It is ABSOLUTELY incorrect to say that the theory of evolution violates the 2nd law of thermodynamics. It shows a complete lack of understanding of the 2nd law, chemistry, physics and the notion of a "closed system".
Let me enlighten you, Ice-Flyer, with a brief, and hopefully clearly understandable explanation of why this is so:
The Earth upon which we live is not a truly closed system. Gobs of Space Junk rains down on our planet. Stuff "leaks" out of our atmosphere. And and almost UNIMAGINABLE amount of energy is dumped into our planet from the Sun.
Molecules just lying around, minding their own business get positively PELTED by various forms of radiation, both from the Sun, as well as extra solar cosmic radiation. This energy allows molecules to be "kicked around" into states and configurations of a higher order and energy state. These more "complex" chemical molecules are futher subjected to bombardment, and they "climb" the ladder of stored chemical energy and complexity.
Now, If you look at this independently, you might make the mistake that the 2nd law is somehow being violated. By itself, the chemicals seem to be adding complexity and energy states all by themselves.
However, this is not the case. You see, the ENTIRE system includes the Sun as the energy source, and it indeed is running down. All our life, and for that matter, weather and geological processes ultimately rely on the Sun as a heat and power source. And the Sun is consuming VAST amounts of Hydrogen to liberate the energy to make this possible. And one day, it will run out, and the 2nd law is in no way violated.
As the Solar System in toto runs down, things will get cold and dead, and the 2nd law will be satisfied.
People do not violate the 2nd law by reproducing.
Wind does not violate the 2nd law by blowing, seemingly arising from nowhere.
You just have to find the source of the chemical/mechanical energy driving the reactions.

The 2LoT is necessary for evolution to have happened, it is not a restriction to evolution. The idea that the 2LoT is some sort of force that evolution must overcome is a misunderstanding of what the 2LoT means for the combination of chemicals.
