    By the way, kids, don’t try this at home. It’s extremely dangerous to stare directly at a solar eclipse, even if you’re wearing a welder’s helmet!

    Sorry Boody, can’t ask questions like that. Verboten at universities nowadays because random chance wouldn’t cause it. The tactic for such things is merely to B.S. or to ignore the question.

    I ran into that when I took a bio Evolution class. Professor wouldn’t answer scientific questions from students because it would mean he was teaching nonsense. I quit after two sessions. If something is true, it survives questioning.

    Don’t you just love the beauty of math? And Karma has sorta got it all right. But Merlin is kinda deflationary (not the Beatles’ fault)….

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    I could not agree more, the professors these days are sooo far off, Im kinda surprised they are not blaming this too on global warming, whether natural or man made. When Justin was younger, Jr. high school age or so, he had a giant telescope, he was always interested in things such as solar eclipses and planet movements. We use to stay up late to try to see the rings around Saturn when the planets were aligned correctly. ;:^)

    Boody, I feel the same way about Saturn’s rings. They are so delicate, so bright, so detailed, and yet all that beauty persists! How do they seem to defy logic? We just don’t know. We have some guesses at explanation, but not any good enough.
    Add to that, Saturn’s north pole has a persistent spinning hexagon shape in the clouds many times bigger than the Earth. Yes, a six-sided storm. (Google Saturn hexagon)
    .
    Personally, I take all this (and so much more) as proof this universe didn’t “just happen.” It’s not a rigorous proof; just proof enough to convince me.

    Great stuff, Justin!
    Especially like the shadow effect on the M.T. logo.

    Eclipses are nothing. The chances of The Beatles forming together, now THAT could have nearly been an impossibility.

    Justin, I love the subtle detail in the coloring. You can see how the shadow passes over them.

    " It’s not a rigorous proof; just proof enough to convince me."

    Talk about setting the bar pretty low for proof. NOTHING I see in the universe suggests any “intelligent design” because there is no RIGOROUS proof for that intelligence. I won’t just believe anything, PROVE it, exactly, or forget it.

    “All that I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all that I have NOT seen.” Only arrogant mortals who think that anything that cannot be perceived with the five senses (as limited as they are) cannot possibly be valid or real demand strict proof of everything that they encounter. Are you really that arrogant, DragonRydr?

    @legaleagle48

    Your question is just as arrogant as you believe him to be.
