Oh shit! I think I’m in trouble. NASA’s Chandra X-Ray Observatory has spotted the cosmic hand of God.
I know they’re saying it is just some x-rays coming out of a nebula surrounding a pulsar dubbed PSR B1509-58. And I know the folks at Chandra say they have added the blue colour themselves to make the x-rays show up. But I’m not taking any chances. I mean would you? Look at that hand, it’s so real. It has to be God’s. At least he’s not sticking out his cosmic middle finger at me… I guess.
I’m going to believe whatever I have to. I’m going to ask for forgiveness. I’m going to do what it takes to make sure that those cosmic x-ray fingers don’t reach down and twist my head off.
Hand of God or just PSR B1509-58? Depends on who you ask.
As NASA said in a release, “The pulsar is a rapidly spinning neutron star which is spewing energy out into the space around it to create complex and intriguing structures, including one that resembles a large cosmic hand.”
And yet, there will always be people who will ignore the magnificent beauty of such a phenomenon like PSR B1509-58 and see in it what they want to and nothing else.
But hey, what could you expect from someone who calls herself godsmiraclegirl333? She says:
Although it can be explained scientifically, I don’t live in a scientific world. I live in spirit and in truth just as it is written. GOD created man. Man created science. So obviously who created science? If you disagree, then that’s fine. hehehe!
I can joke about 6000-year old earths and buried dinosaur fossils, but comments like that just make me cringe.
And she’s not alone, of course. It took me all of two minutes to dig up some more crap with people quoting stuff like:
“Surely My hand founded the earth,
And My right hand spread out the heavens…”
1 Peter 5:6
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time…
Seeing this, and imagining that His hand is really there, I am humbled just thinking of how mighty He is
and in response to criticism, answering:
well, the alternative is:
The belief that there was nothing and nothing happened to nothing and then nothing magically exploded for no reason, creating everything and then a bunch of everything magically rearranged itself for no reason what so ever into self-replicating bits which then turned into dinosaurs.
Makes perfect sense.
I wish that pulsar could change into a real cosmic hand, pick up purveyors of such blatant ignorance off the face of the Earth and fling them into a black hole or something.
I think maybe I’ll just keep my fingers crossed. After all, in a quantum universe, anything is possible, right?
