“The intense gravity of the black hole makes the gas orbit at insane speeds. And the gas becomes incredibly hot as a result. And because of the size of supermassive black holes, the superheated gascloud is larger than our whole solar system.”This was also interesting but set off a little alarm in my mind. I am not a scientist but I am credentialed to teach science. That isn’t worth much but it is true. In my limited knowledge of physics I was under the impression that black holes were based totally on theory. It is a way of explaining a phenomenon in the sky that is not understood. As a theory it might be valid, but we don’t know.
Now we have a bunch of theory about quasars based on a bunch of theory about black holes being presented as established fact.
Laymen to science need to understand that it is a bunch of theories based on a bunch of facts. The facts can be duplicated and verified. How they fit together is open to interpretation and that interpretation is constantly changing. Newton was the guru until guys like Einstein came along. Einstein is no longer the final word. The scientific method is based on the assumption that the science will never be settled, unless you are Al Gore talking about global warming, of course.
So if you are a Christian who is not comfortable with some of the nonsense you hear about evolution you need to realize that they can no more prove evolution than you can creation. The same goes for global warming, people being born homosexual and the list goes on.
Don’t believe everything you read on the internet or your textbooks.
