I say you should go with what you think is right. You should never feel like you're "betraying" people for converting.

While you are correct that there's no arguing with the Second Law of Thermodynamics, you obviously don't quite understand the concept. That law states that the entropy (disorder) of a closed system increases or stays constant over time. A reaction (such as an explosion) must therefore create some disorder, but not all of that energy goes to waste. Take a nuclear reactor, for example- we can harness some of the energy released in a nuclear chain reaction for our benefit. In the case of the big bang, the universe was cooled by its expansion and gravity slowly acted to bring particles into stars, planets, galaxies, etc.
