Without Excuse

This image, captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, is of the galaxy NGC-1309. It is so stunningly beautiful in its "fearful symmetry," that it called to mind two verses of Scripture.

Psalm 19, "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handiwork."

Romans 1:20, "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse..."

In other words, if you want proof for God's existence, look up and behold His handiwork. To say that such order, beauty, and majesty is a product of random chance, is an article of faith so absurd as to render belief in God a rational, reasonable response to what impacts our senses. But hey, that's just me....
