The first law of thermodynamics indicates that the universe could not have created itself. However, the second law of thermodynamics indicates that the universe must have had a beginning. Taken together, both laws indicate that the universe was supernaturally created. 1
Stated another way, the first law means that the universe could not have created itself, and so if it was not supernaturally created, then it must be eternal. However, if it were eternal, there would be no usable energy left according to the second law. The second law basically states that everything tends toward decay, and so if the universe is infinitely old, it would be infinitely decayed. However, the universe is not infinitely decayed, and we still have usable energy (e.g., the sun provides usable energy). Therefore, the universe is not infinitely old, and because it could not have created itself, it must have a supernatural Creator.
