Some days you see some really arresting stuff. You just look at it and go ‘what is that all about!’ It happens in the universe, the world and inside businesses. You just think … really! And, sometimes the answer is, yer, really.
And now for the pseudoscientific.
The theory based, the non-specific.
Antithesis of methodical naturalism.
But not, I’m told, full on creationism.
So, you shout, what of natural selection.
The irreducible complexity connection.
What of the fit survive, the weak fail.
What of eternal life, the Holiest Grail.
Of Pandas and People, Men and Mice.
Of all the things sugar sweet and spice.
Of all things rough, textured and fine.
Look around, really, intelligent design?

Image used: M106 Across the Spectrum.
“The spiral arms of bright, active galaxy M106 sprawl through this remarkable multiwavelength portrait, composed of image data from radio to X-rays, across the electromagnetic spectrum. Also known as NGC 4258, M106 can be found toward the northern constellation Canes Venatici. The well-measured distance to M106 is 23.5 million light-years, making this cosmic scene about 60,000 light-years across. Typical in grand spiral galaxies, dark dust lanes, youthful star clusters, and star forming regions trace spiral arms that converge on a bright nucleus. But this composite highlights two anomalous arms in radio (purple) and X-ray (blue) that seem to arise in the central region of M106, evidence of energetic jets of material blasting into the galaxy’s disk. The jets are likely powered by matter falling into a massive central black hole”.
