Hope it hasn't been posted before, I don't check this section of the forum regularly, but thought it'd be worth sharing (mods, feel free to lock or delete if it has been posted before).

Here's a photo showing what's said by some to be God's hand in space:

Actually, it is PSR B1509-58, a pulsar in the constellation of Circinus, discovered with X-rays.
Didn't take the shot myself, just so you know. I'd need a pretty long lens... :)

Heh cool picture.

Looks like God is twirling a wrint-hula-hoop ring on the index finger.

Cheers ;-)

I like that. I didn't think pulsars could be seen.

edit: lol, it was x-ray imaging that was used. Duh!

Check out the sequence about 45 seconds into this YouTube snippet about the Crab Nebula. :idea:

I've always been taught that God isn't corporeal :P.

Awesome pic. I've got Harvard's website in my account so I was able to view it. God with three fingers and a thumb with a cat's-cradle of fire :).

Wow 8)

Looks like a ghost's hand reaching for red-hot coal. ;-)
