What a poseur. You have no idea where an education comes from. Somehow, you think that the things we know were all taught to us in college in our majors.

Thor dropped his hammer it was a terrible accident!
Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson set out to answer a truly perplexing scientific question Thursday on his Twitter feed: How much does Thor’s hammer weigh?
If Thor’s hammer is indeed made of a star, like the Marvel comic book says, it would weigh as much as 300 billion elephants.
Assuming the average weight of an elephant, this equates to approximately 4.5 quadrillion pounds, according to a Slate report (we’ll trust their math).
Tyson even posted a photo of himself holding the hammer, to provide some proof of the accuracy of his report.
He is one of pop culture’s favorite scientists, having hosted NOVA ScienceNow on PBS for five seasons and appearing frequently on The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and Late Night with Conan O’Brien.
He has hosted three of Reddit’s top 10 Ask Me Anything Q&A’s. He’s also no stranger to comic books — Tyson was featured in an issue of Action Comics in 2012, where he helped determine the location of Superman’s home planet, Krypton.
Thor huh? I'll have ta add that ta my list.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
That's probably not the question you want answered. It's analogous to asking if gravity can be reversed, which means turning a force of attraction into one of repulsion. The answer to both is no. They are both relentless, unidirectional processes.
You probably want to know if their effects can be reversed, or countered. The answer is yes. Gravity can be overcome by lifting, and its effect opposed or reversed. But gravity itself is never reversed
Likewise, the entropy of an open system can be reduced by doing work on it (see Maxwell's demon at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxwell%27s_demo ...).
Your writing on science shows that you have almost no familiarity with it. Yet you write with the demeanor of a person who thinks he understands it. Your question probably should be asking what entropy is, and how it relates to aging.

Not only he asked a legitimate question and it doesn't show a lack of understanding from him and isn't analogous as asking if gravity can be reversed, here is a scientist that disagrees with you:
Question: Can entropy be reversed?
Yes
http://quantumj13.imascientist.org.uk/2013/06...
But what does that guy know right? Here are his qualifications
"Rickmansworth School: GCSEs and 5 A Levels. Oxford University: physics. Now doing a PhD at University College London
Qualifications:
Master’s in Physics at Oxford; studying for a PhD now!
Work History:
I worked at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN for a year
Current Job:
PhD student
Employer:
University College London"
LOL, Ians you big dummy!
Your author was discussing something hypothetical that never actually happens - a spontaneous reduction in the entropy of a complex, closed system. This would be like heat spontaneously traveling from a cooler body to a warmer one, or the grains of sand in a sand dune stacking up after a gust of wind.

The entropy of the universe is always increasing. That is an inexorable fact of physics - a thermodynamic law - that is never violated. Never.

Plus, he made an error:

"For example, if we have a container with two compartments, it is possible that all the air molecules will fly into one compartment."

That's not possible. It would be a violation of the conservation of momentum, which is the vector sum of the directed magnitudes of uncounted numbers of tiny masses in motion. Every time two molecules collide, they go in different directions, not the same direction. They simply can't spontaneously all go the same way if they aren't already doing so.

Now here's the practical truth in his essay, the part physicists use to do actual physics, and which confirms my analysis. He begins by using the same illustration I did, something you've never heard of - Maxwell's demon:

"You might have read about Maxwell’s Demon, a thought experiment in which a Demon is able to decrease entropy by sorting fast and slow molecules ( http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons... ). But Maxwell’s Demon can only do this by gaining information about the system: and in so doing, Maxwell’s Demon increases information entropy."

And here he is making the distinction between a closed system and an open one just like I did.

"Some machines like fridges and biological cells work by decreasing entropy in a local environment. But in so doing, they increase the entropy around them."

If that's a doctoral candidate in physics, I'd say that I stacked up pretty well against him. That's not my field, just an area of interest. And I am decades out of university. Yet I could write essentially the same essay off of the top of my head.

What you call arrogant is me stepping on you, little man. You can never be a part of my world.

Experiencing God Day By Day:

Abundant Life
"The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." (John 10:10)
*
Jesus warns us to be on guard for thieves who will try to rob us of what God has for us. Jesus wants us to enjoy abundant life (John 10:10). Since the time of Adam and Eve, people have had to choose whom to believe. Satan convinced Adam and Eve that forfeiting their obedience to God would gain them everything. Instead, their disobedience robbed them of all they had. For the rest of their lives they experienced only a fraction of the blessings God had intended. Scripture is replete with accounts of those who forfeited their inheritance as children of God in order to gain that which was transitory and empty.
*
The world seeks to convince you that you will find fulfillment if you adopt its standard of morality for your marriage, raising your children, advancing your career, or pursuing pleasure. If you believe this, you will never experience the blessings God intended for you. Sin brings death (Rom. 6:23). It is tragic to listen to the voices of the world instead of to the One who created life and who wants you to experience life to its fullest.
*
Jesus wants you to live your life with security, knowing that you are a beloved child of God. If you are not experiencing love, joy, and peace, you have settled for less than what God intends for you. If you have been making excuses for why you are not experiencing an abundant and joyful life, determine today to settle for nothing less than God’s best for your life. Stop following the world’s way of finding satisfaction. Instead, listen to the Savior’s voice, and you will find true fulfillment.

From what I was reading it sounded like the application of energy would be required to reverse the process but under very specific scenarios and conditions
Certainly not in my wheelhouse
I just thought it was funny Ians got so condescending with Q when not only it was a legitimate question and one discussed in many scientific forums but was also something many believe can be done. If anything, Ians showed he is the one that doesn't understand what constitutes a legitmate scientific question, not Q
What are you prating on about, Mangleboy? I didn't say that his question was illegitimate. I said that he probably didn't ask the question that he wanted answered. I said that based on the context of his discussion - aging. I'm pretty sure that he was looking for practical information about things that actually happen or might be made to happen, not infinitesimally likely statistical fluctuations with magnitudes on the order of the likelihood of your god existing uncreated.

Furthermore, "something many believe can be done" is incorrect. Your own article discussed that it is not feasible:

"It’s not possible for humans to do anything in particular to increase entropy though. For example, we could try to pump all the molecules into one compartment, but that would involve doing mechanical work, and mechanical work increases entropy by creating heat."

He miswrote there. He meant decrease in his first sentence, not increase.

He also wrote, "So, fluctuations against entropy are possible, but improbable and we can do nothing to increase their likelihood." That also contradicts you, and supports my position that we cannot reverse entropy just like we cannot reverse gravity.

Skombolis: "From what I was reading it sounded like the application of energy would be required to reverse the process but under very specific scenarios and conditions"

You read that in my post: "Likewise, the entropy of an open system can be reduced by doing work on it"

You have no idea what you have been reading about.

As for your guess that I looked that material up to write those posts, you're wrong. That's off the top of my head, just like the posts on statistical significance ellipsoids. The flood calculations were all mine as well, although I had to look up the physical constants about the mass of the earth and the volume of the oceans.

And I generated the math projecting the year that your church assumes minority status in the US from the raw ARIS and Pew data.

How? While you were sitting in prison or gulping Vicodin, I was studying. I still study. I studied about six hours today already distilling the data from multiple web sites and crafting a paper on the Minorwood convention in bridge for my partner and I, who will be attending a major tournament this fall.

So imagine my reaction to a pustule like you and your pathetic grunting. If I'm arrogant, what are you? I can deliver.
