Darwin's Theory of Evolution explains how and why life evolved.

It is obvious that the entropy of the Biosphere is decreasing continuously and this means that the matter involved in the formation of the Biosphere is getting more and more organized (less random). It was pointed out by many that life seems to defy the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, which states, that entropy of any system should be increasing:
