The basis of the argument put forth relays on this concept this law and its application to evolution. Hoatzin are a species of bird that that have maintained the claws that were present in their ancestors. It is than asserted in the paper that, since the bird still has “A "VESTIGE" OF PREVIOUSLY MORE COMPLEX” organism, it is thermodynamically impossible for this “devolution” to occur. While the author of this article seems to grasp the extreme basics of evolution, the fundamental ideas are missing. Survival of those best suited to reproduce, this means that traits such as claws are able to emerge and disappear. Even though a certain attribute may be considered advantageous, it is not subjected to increase to overall intelligence or fitness of an animal unless it gives them a reproductive advantage. Even if the change may be able to give a species an advantage, the appearance of a trait comes from the randomness of DNA mutations.
While their overall statement contains many theories and facts of science, almost every aspect of the ideas put forth are either poorly understood or misconstrued entirely. The base of scientific thought that the author attempted to create is faulted to the point of collapse. While I do respect that actual established theory were attempted to be used, it was contorted and butchered to the point that it only serves to confuse or tick any reader who is unversed in these theories.
