Cartwheel Galaxy Image

Here's a link to a beautiful image of the Cartwheel galaxy, which had another galaxy rip right through it over 100 million years ago. Recently, demon-boy at work expressed the opinion that he thinks it's crazy to believe the universe is over 6500 years old. When we look at pictures like this one, and ponder how much time it takes for things like this to happen, we are left with only two options: either that darn Bearded One created the universe with this kind of thing already in place for some mind-boggling reason, or the universe is billions of years old. How much simpler could it be?

Seriously, though, check out the picture. It's beautiful.
