Interesting, but how is it connected to a shuffled deck of 52 playing cards?

Which has a higher entropy a pack arranged by suit and order or a shuffled pack?

Your question is meaningless because you haven't connected it to any energetic measures. You started your latest fap-fest with this, romansh:

It's got nothing to do with order or disorder.

Now you don't seem to know where you want to go with it. Perhaps you should think about the energy required to put the deck back in order, because that won't happen spontaneously in the course of a typical windstorm.

You found a verbose and poorly organized pet project of an emeritus chem professor who apparently has the opinion that you should teach students that it has nothing to do with disorder. Nothing.

Lambert eventually squeezes out the relation between entropy, enthalpy, temperature and Gibbs energy at equilibrium, but nowhere in this rambling series of essays is the structure of thermodynamics presented in a coherent way. You should have thought about it before you linked it just because you found some words in it that flatter an opinion of yours.
