I'm not an evolutionary biologist, so I can't in good conscience try to refute your argument. I can say, though, that you've made one glaring error.

When you made the parenthetical statement "violating the scientifically proven law of increasing entropy, by the way," you demonstrated just how little you actually knew about this topic.

The second law of thermodynamics, which you have referenced, applies only to a closed system. So, if you took a reaction, put it in an insulated test tube, and measured it, you would see the entropy of the system rise or stabilize, but never decrease.

If, however, you then heated the test tube, entropy would decrease, because you've added energy from an outside source. In the context of Earth and evolution, that outside heating source is the sun. The sun provides the energy and radiation necessary for life to exist. This energy also is why it's plausible that increasingly complex organisms evolved from less complex organisms.

There's more I can say on the other topics you've touched on, but they are many, it is late, and I am tired. Before I go to bed, though, I'll leave you with this link to a short page. On it, you'll find the definitions for "Fact," "Hypothesis," "Law," and "Theory" as they are used in scientific papers.
