Could This NASA Image Be the Hand of God?


Science is often used as an excuse not to believe in a higher power, but some say a recent X-ray photo generated by a NASA could be the “Hand of God.”

According to a report in The Christian Science Monitor, NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array – NuSTAR — captured the celestial image of the “hand of God” after the explosion of a star released a substantial amount of debris into space.

Scientists say the photo was generated through a wealth of intergalactic phenomenon, but is a distinct possibility the image displays a hand. “We don’t know if the hand shape is an optical illusion,” said Hongjun An, of McGill University in Montreal. “With NuSTAR, the hand looks more like a fist, which is giving us some clues.”

Researchers say that the occurrence of the “hand of God” is more than likely an example of pareidolia; a psychosomatic mind game in which images trick a person’s brain into seeing familiar objects. Common forms of pareidolia are when individuals see animals or mythological creatures in clouds or the face of a man in the moon.
