God must have known that man would eventually develop a device like the Hubble Space Telescope, otherwise why would He have made such beautiful stuff in galaxies far, far away?
I cannot get my head around the vastness of outer space. The numbers are so large it’s just crazy. In Picture #23, Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1300 is some 61 million light years away from us. That’s 61 million years traveling at the speed of light – about 186,000 miles per second. I just ran a converter and that’s this many miles:
The other day at work I told my co-worker about the weird hexagon-shaped storm on Saturn. That is one of the weirdest things I’ve ever seen. Scientists can’t explain it. It freaked him out as well. Tie a weight to a rope and swing it around above your head and try to form a hexagon with it. <grin> Since he’s an atheist I ran my little theory by him. What do this storm on Saturn, a beehive, and a snowflake all have in common? A hexagonal shape. 6 sides to a hexagon. How many days in creation?
For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. Exodus 20:11
I think hexagons might be God’s “Easter eggs”.
Creation is amazing. The Creator even more so.
