Entropic systems are common on Earth

Entropic systems are common on Earth. We are familiar with the concept of entropy. We find entropic systems in the form of clocks, watches, and wind-up toys that run down and stop when the energy in their spring or their battery is spent. That's the effect of entropy. The Big Bang theory tells us that the universe operates in the same manner, though much more slowly. It is said to have expanded from an intense single-point explosion 13.8 billion years ago, that wound it up, that got it going, that got it expanding further and further until it fades into nothing when the energy that came with the explosion, is used up. Can this be true?
