A Picture of God's Hand

Enjoy an unbelievable work of art created by God Himself.

Of course, this picture is not really an image of God's literal hand, but the scene was definitely created by the hand of God.  This image, taken by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, shows a nebula around a collapsed star known as PSR B1509-58.  Having reached the end of it's life, the star collapsed into a pulsar which is now throwing off incredible amount of energy.  The energy forms ion winds and random magnetic fields around the pulsar.  This x-ray image shows the pattern formed by the particle, ion and magnetic fields.  The pattern just happened to form an image that looks like the shape of a gigantic, God-like hand.  As I said, it is random and coincidental, so this is not an image of God's actual hand; but, it is the work of God's hand that put the stars in place.  It is the work of God's hand that created the energy and the magnetic fields.  So, it is God's hand that created this breathtaking scene.
