But It's There

Saying for the Day-Sometimes what you can't see is what you get.

I believe in something that can not be seen. Something that you can not touch or feel. Something you can’t put a test tube in and get under a microscope. How do you know it’s there you might ask. Because it’s the best explanation for the existence of other things that can be seen.
Artists draw pictures based on visions and dreams of this something.
What is this object of belief? I suppose you think that because I am a Pastor I am going too say God but you would be wrong. The object is a black hole. It may or may not exist out there in space . But if it does you can not see it. It doesn’t allow light to escape. You can’t touch it or get stuff out of it because anything that goes in stays in and is never seen again.
What makes us think that black holes exist? Well scientists ( the people who know) tell us that they do. They are an explanation for the creation and destruction of some stars. They are a very usable theory. Without them so many things out there in space would make no sense.
So science believes in what it can not see, touch, feel, or experiment on. Isn’t that interesting.
Have a good day and don’t fall in a black hole.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal.– Bob Maki who heads up the festival and celebration committee for Pigeon Falls visited the blog “Outside My Window” and says he found a whole group of festival and celebrations that could be used in Pigeon Falls.
There are special Christmas events. November 3 is Luminary night , November 10th is Christmas Market Open House .What else would they call an event on November 17th, Hunter's Widow Day .The Festival of Trees is on November 24th and a Artist Reception is scheduled for November 25. They will have wagon rides and refreshments.
Pigeon Falls has always been willing to borrow an event or two from a neighbor. It will, of course, change and receive a distinct Pigeon Falls flavor. It might even be given a new name. But great ideas have to come from someplace .
Over at the Fly Inn somebody suggested that on the coldest day in January they hold a driblet festival and have Petrovich read his latest translations. Perhaps they can even get Petrovich to sing the Pigeon Falls song. Everybody at the bar thought that was pretty funny. Josep Stohan suggested that Petrovich might sing a driblet. They found that even funnier. Poor Petrovich his attempt to help the town he loves have now made him the butt of bar humor.

Today's Link-Quasar9-On black holes he's the expert.
I worked in the basement most of the day. We got the trolley running. It won't work on Fas Track so we had to put in a special trolley track made up of the old O27 track. Betty came and helped. Then we went out to eat lunch ( there was nothing to eat in the house) and grocery shopping.Pennie is on call this weekend. So we saw her coming and going. Lots of people trying to commit suicide today so she spent a lot of time at the hospital. Now I need a breathing treatment.

that explains why things put in my purse often are never seen again.

Yet black holes are still a mystery - who knows what matter could be transformed and blown out the back side? I like to think of them as God's very own mechanical self propelled vacuum cleaner.

My love is a scientist who believes in God. He says there is no other logical explanation for how the universe came together. Large explosions (big bang theory) do not create, they destroy.

Do not believe everything you can see, even if you've seen it on the news on tv

There IS much so much we cannot see
