I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

Eye Candy 15

Here is a deep field photo of outer space. These "stars" are all galaxies. The only "star" that is not a galaxy is the one in the upper right corner that has lines radiating through it. The lines are the distortion of the light on the lens.

For as far as our best telescopes can see there are more and more galaxies like our own Milky Way. The expanse of space is incomprehensibly huge.

Now, here is the strange news in light of "evolution" There is no predicted infrared emission from these galaxies. It is as if they are not old. But if they are not old, and the speed of light is constant, then how did they get so far away so quickly?

Maybe the "big bang" theory and the theory of "evolution" are not all that they are cracked up to be? Maybe light can be slowed down or sped up? Or maybe God just spoke the universe into existence at one moment in time 6,000 years ago?

We report, you decide. ;-) You can click on the photo to enlarge it.

There is also expansion of space - and when you have expansion of space, the galaxies do move away faster than the speed of light - it's because space is expanding - think of it like blowing up a baloon. This isn't to be confused with the speed of light through a vacuum - which is a constant speed c.

Can you please give the source of the photo and for not having the infrared emissions?

The source is
It is the "Astronomy Picture of the Day" for yesterday. This is a great web site to look at each day if you
like pics of outer space.

Now that's journalism. I love it.

The expansion of space is support for this sprucegoose post is it not?
The expansion of space changes time, which then leads to the understanding of slower light, if I remember correctly.
