Look in the top left corner of the picture (helps if it is at a large resolution size). There's a bit of a piece of the nebula that looks like a hand with the middle finger up.

Looking at the vastness and the beauty of the univers, how can any fool talk of a God or Gods and pretend that we'd be something special, created by a superior force just to look at all the stuff up there, not being taught a darn thing about that great endless space out there.
A thousand "Thanks" to all the scientists around the planet who, over the last 5000 years showed us that knowledge and research is better than blind believe which only hindered human development so many times throughout the ages. Here you can gaze at something beautiful, that 50.000 years of superstitions, believes and religions could never show you.
Praise to the Hubble and the people who designed it.

I'm glad someone else saw that middle finger, I went out side and flipped off the sky the second I saw that. My neighbors think I'm crazy. "HEY, LOOK AT THAT YOU FREAKIN' ALIENS!"

In response to a comment above, I'm all for science and the pursuit of knowledge. However, i must pose the question concerning God.... How can you think that something so amazing and beautiful just appeared? or occurred on it's own? Which takes more faith- believing that God created us and the universe (and aren't we grateful He cared enough about us to send His son to die for our sins on the cross) or that we along with the universe somehow magically formed? Personally, I believe in God and his wondrous power. I think this image only exemplifies His magnificent glory... if you don't agree.... that's fine with me... we will all discover the truth in time.

I think, that may be god's answer to all our prayers if it is.......
but, very perty picture.

I think the picture is beautiful but it doesnt give proof of a divine power. Everly thing that goes on in that picture can be explained by space researchers. God is an explanaiton for the unknown. Great picture though!

Haha, i find it humorous that you think its more likely that an imaginary super being clicked his fingers and created the universe, over the scientifically proven facts. Watch "The Planets" series, nothing but proven science, and it explains an awful lot, right down to the birth of black holes through the eventual decay of burning suns. I find the idea of God comparable to father christmas, makes life easy and wonderful until you become knowledgeable enough to learn the facts, and then you can enjoy the beauty of life even more, pondering the infinate possibilites out there, that arnt bound by some drunken ancient hippies fictitious book of jesus! hah!

Okay, first of all, the bible was not just some hippy concoction to explain their drunkeness. Second of all, you're only fooling yourself if you think that laughing God out of the picture of life is going to get you out of hell. That may seem blunt and for good reason. That's the place for people who just laught God off as some human creation.

oh and scenic is right people should not dismiss the scientific truths to creation, however some people need to believe in something to give them hope instead of believing in themselves.........

Obviously a stunning picture. It scares me how primitive and ridiculous religion is. To think that any sort of consciousness could create the universe is incomprehensible for me. For me religion is like an old form of propaganda used thousands of years ago to inspire a community to behave themselves. If you steel or kill etc. you will go to hell. The majority of people must have truly belived in this. Religion scares me because it proves how ignorant and weak we can be. Hubble does some great work, by the way this is the birthplace for stars, some of those stars 100 times larger than the Sun. 200 light years in diameter, the keyhole feature is 7 light's accross. These nebulae are hellholes! All though the gas that you see looks dense its not. It's so dispersed that that each smoke sized particle is spaced apart the size of the albert hall, thats quite enough from me.

Wow, what's more amazing than the image is the stupidity of those who believe a god created it and are so egotistical as to still think that the earth, or in other words humans, are at the centre of the universe.

The universe was not created for human beings and each and everyone of us will vanish into oblivion, learn to deal with it rather than cling to outdated fairytales that make you feel important and that your life is anything but an insignifant speck in this unimaginably enormous universe.

I love how people look at this and think THIS PICTURE PROVES THAT GOD EXISTS when actually it says nothing about God at all. Perfection does not imply causation, and I for one am tired of the fallacious arguments that cite pictures like these.
