The Universe.

"Let Those Who Have Eyes, See . . ."

Some of the most breathtaking views in The Universe are created by Nebulae — hot, glowing clouds of gas. This new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows the centre of The Lagoon Nebula, an object with a deceptively tranquil name, in the Constellation of Sagittarius. The region is filled with intense winds from hot Stars, churning funnels of gas, and energetic Star formation, all embedded within an intricate haze of gas and pitch-dark dust.

Wikipedia states that Charles Darwin promoted "Natural Selection" to explain things.
He described himself as an Agnostic.
Wikipedia states that Richard Dawkins is an Atheist, a patron of the British Humanist Association, and a supporter of the Brights Movement. He is well known for his criticism of
In his 1986 book, The Blind Watchmaker, Dawkins argues against the Watchmaker Analogy, an argument for the existence of a Supernatural Creator based upon the complexity of living organisms. Instead, he describes evolutionary processes as analogous to a blind watchmaker.

If you travel for 15,000 Light Years,
and if you go to the Constellation of Sagittarius,
you will see this.
It is the spectacular cosmic pairing of the Star "Hen 2-427" — more commonly known as
"WR 124" — and the nebula "M1-67", which surrounds it. Both objects, captured here
by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, are found in the Constellation of Sagittarius
and lie 15,000 light-years away.
The Star "Hen 2-427" shines brightly at the very centre of this explosive image,
and around the hot clumps of surrounding gas that are being ejected into Space
at over 93,210 miles (150,000 km) per hour.

Although we are used to seeing Saturn's Moons lit directly by the Sun, sometimes we can catch them illuminated by "Saturn-Shine." Here, we see Saturn's Moon "Mimas" (upper right of The Rings of Saturn) lit by light reflected off of Saturn.

Wikipedia states that Jainism believes The Universe is eternal
and has no need for a Creator Deity.

  1. Many of those who worship science say that we are ignorant and our beliefs can be denied by the newest research into scientific discoveries. However, every time I look at the night sky or watch a show on the universe, it simply confirms the Catholic faith for me. I am sure that this holds true for all those who share our faith.
