I think you miss the point. The point is that heat alone doesn't provide the answer for how entropy is occurring. Even an open system which is receiving heat can be at near maximum entropy. That's the point.
I've never heard of maximum entropy. What is that??? Is the moon's entropy increasing. Are there any of sources of heat on the moon.
You like the car thing, so let's go with that. If you're driving in your car, your gas is being converted to usable energy and heat by the engine which you obviously know. This decreases the entropy of the system in question, the car and its surroundings. Turn off your engine, and the entropy of the system increases.
In reference to the Earth, her only source of energy is not the Sun. The Earth's interior also has radioactive elements that are producing heat.
You're overthinking the entropy thing man.
That's a good example too but it's more difficult to conceptualize. The drive-train is a closed system. If you want to nit-pick about it, yours is an open system too the moment it produces an air fuel mixture that has to go somewhere.
You're making it more difficult.
This is actually a great parallel to Boyle's Law. The evolutionists here are quick to reject the signs of entropy because it is best described in a closed system but visible and comprehensible in an open system.
Again, your overanalyzing entropy. It's a word used to describe properties of a system. If those properties change entropy changes.
While Boyle's Law is demonstrated and calculated in a closed system it shows attributes of gasses that are undeniable and must still be considered conceptually in an open system.
Is this about dust clouds???
