Darwin Was Working on His Theory When This SuperNova Was First Seen
This beautiful Hubble Telescope photograph of the Eta Carinae system gives us a great deal more detail than they had in 1843 when the supernova was first observed from Earth. It’s a graphic illustration of the level of scientific ignorance Darwin was working under. Darwin remains a hero today, and his “one long argument” continues to hold sway, not because of the science, but because of the religion. In that regard, Darwin was spot on, and nothing has changed. Sure, all kinds of new scientific evidence has been discovered, but it is interpreted according to the same old metaphysics. Religion drives science, and it matters.
