Hubble has spotted an ancient galaxy that shouldn't exist

You know what really keeps religious folks from believing in scientists claiming that an entire universe worth of stuff just popped up from nothing is. To begin with you have to believe in something from noting. In school we learned with 2 jars, some meat and a piece of cheesecloth that maggots didn't come from meat(And that something doesn't come from nothing). Then they tell us that particles pop into existence all the time from nothing, but no way to prove that it didn't just come from somewhere else, this is made worse by the fact that they now tell us that things can also pop in and out from other places. But since they can't prove that the something from nothing particle isn't actually a something from somewhere else particle. Secondly 99.9%(or more) of everything scientists have told us has been wrong at least once, and often it has to be "revised" many many time(meaning they were wrong many many times.

Unprecedented: Amateur astronomers discover a planet with four suns False. At least in understanding, suns can be anywhere, Sol is the name of the star we orbit.

Scientists have been reconstructing the history of the moon by scouring its surface, mapping its mountains and craters, and probing its interior. What are they learning about our own planet’s beginnings? Decades ago, we sent astronauts to the moon as a symbol of confidence in the face of the great cold war struggle.

Animals are listed by their name (i.e. Steller's Jay, Blue Jay, Western Scrub Jay), and also consider searching for simplifications like 'cat' or 'eagle.' 10 Moons Every Person Should Know The proper name of our satellite, in English, is The Moon. I don't really see the problem acknowledging this. Luna is the Latin, from Roman times, tied to a moon goddess. Astronomers may have just discovered the first known free-floating planet There isn't any reason this object wouldn't or couldn't have satellites of its own; and probably does. Earth has 1-6 moons at any given time, but we don't really notice them because they're small and interloping. Here, experiment: Sadly there is no way to intelligently answer those questions at this time beyond "Well, we do not know of any reason either of those things should be impossible, but we do not know anything about what would make that possible either." We simply have no empirical evidence to work with here except for what we can observe in our own solar system, and we have absolutely no way to know whether what we observe here could be considered "typical" or whether our system represents some extreme abberration... or even whether the interactions which govern stellar/planetary formation allow for the word "typical" to have any meaning whatsoever. So what you're saying is "Maybe, maybe not"?

Hubble data predicts Milky Way galactic collision When Galaxies Collide! It sounds like an early science fiction novel. However, analysis of Hubble measurements shows that our own Milky Way galaxy is moving toward a head-on collision with our nearest neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy (also known as M31). The collision will start in about four billion years, and over the following three billion years the two spiral galaxies will coalesce into a large elliptical galaxy. Based on this data, NASA has produced a video of the upcoming collision. View all Totem Guidance Welcome to the Totem Guidance page!

Mysterious Cosmic 'Dark Flow' Tracked Deeper into Universe Mysterious Cosmic 'Dark Flow' Tracked Deeper into Universe Distant galaxy clusters mysteriously stream at a million miles per hour along a path roughly centered on the southern constellations Centaurus and Hydra. A new study led by Alexander Kashlinsky at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., tracks this collective motion -- dubbed the "dark flow" -- to twice the distance originally reported.
