Interactive Assignment Week 1

The author did use the scientific method to draw his conclusions. I had to read the essay several times to make sure I understood it. The grammar and sentence structure were so poor that I had trouble following parts of it, for example:
"Its important not only to realize that adding things each of which changes can make some other things change less, but to have a feeling for why that happens." This sentence made no sense to me. In regard to his final conclusion, I was uncertain if "less probable" was the same as or equal to "disorder".
I read the "Second Law of Thermodynamics" link and I understood it to mean the opposite, but I am unsure.
After this module, I realized I have much to learn about biology! I did enjoy the interactive experiment, which allowed me to test the laws of diffusion.
