Because the second law of thermodynamics says that the entropy of an isolated system not already in equilibrium will tend to increase over time.Living organisms aren't isolated systems. They are constantly taking in energy from their environment, so their entropy doesn't have to be increasing. Most of this energy has come from the sun, though some comes from the earth itself. If you lump together life forms on earth, the earth itself, and the sun into one "system" then you'll see entropy increasing over time, since together these make up a system that is (pretty close to being) isolated.
This "what is that life?" is a good question.However the answer has nothing to do with thermodynamics.
If you shake up a large bag of letters you should not be surprised to come across the word "Bullshit"
what is that life?
