TOKYO (AP) — A German-French observation device safely landed on an asteroid on Wednesday after a Japanese spacecraft released it as part of a research effort that could find clues about the origin of the solar system, Japanese space officials said. The Japan Space Exploration Agency said the Mobile Asteroid Surface Scout, or MASCOT, was released from the unmanned spacecraft Hayabusa2 and successfully landed on the asteroid Ryugu. The spacecraft went as close as about 50 meters (160 feet) to the asteroid’s surface to release the box-shaped lander.

“as part of a research effort that could find clues about the origin of the solar system”

Hey guys! Here’s a hint that might help you in finding clues about the origin of the solar system” “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)

Here's a hint -- this is a science topic and it's not in the religion forum, you're not doing anything new, you're trolling, and you've just made yourself look like a jackass.

gee, thanks, Captain Obvious. "created" is one thing - it describes a completed act. But the question that drives exploration of what is 'created' is "how". This is an article about 'how' we might get closer to the "how". Every discovery is an affirmation of the wonder of the creation of the universe. If we weren't supposed to look in awe, and question what we see with logic and science, the Bible would tell us so. In fact, quite the opposite: Isaiah 40:26.

"Lift up your eyes on high And see who has created these stars, The One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name; Because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power, Not one of them is missing."

So, it is being a jackass to suggest that God created the universe? I didn’t really expect it from on here. And no, I don’t think it is wrong to reach out and study God’s creation. I am just amazed at how closed minded people are who believe in evolution as a religion!

You have no idea what my beliefs are, which is not surprising, because you just shot off your stupid troll mouth in a science topic, which is what all trolls before you have done. Again, you just make yourself look like a jackass, and for the very reasons I gave, not for your idiotic ad hoc strawman lies.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)”

That’s the “when” part, not the “how” part, dipstick.

You guys sure are kind. I have been called a troll, dipstick, and jackass. And accused of “ad hoc strawman lies.” I never thought that on here I would be called these things, just by quoting Genesis 1:1. Maybe you all should learn a lesson on kindness and civility. I figured if I had posted this on a leftist hate board I would have gotten such a response, but not here.

For the record, I did not insult anyone’s religious belief. I do not know if you believe in God or not. But it is obvious that you believe in evolution and not the biblical account of creation. So be it. But why are you guys so afraid of a quotation from the Bible?
