We can only determine the centre of the observableUniverse. There isn't a true way of defining the centre of the Universe as we don't know what the exact shape of it is or size of it. We can be looking at the Universe like a fish looking out of a fish bowl, very distorted like an optical illusion.

Nice photoshopped image anyway. Unless there is a proper source on the NASA website.

So does this mean that at the very center of the universe there is a giant crucifix and Jesus is still nailed to it?

Fucking. Awesome.

Sort of. People consider the "center" the area where the universe is expanding from. If you know the whole "the universe is expanding" thing, it's expanding from somewhere. This doesn't mean there is some planet or god there, it's just a place, probably empty.
No, the universe is expanding from everywhere, every single point of the universe is the point it is expanding from. There is no centre because everywhere is the centre.

Let's say you're a two-dimensional creature living on the surface of a balloon, and you inflate the balloon, then the 'universe' is expanding, but from no central point, in the 2d world of the balloon surface everything is moving away from everything else just like in our universe.

We can hardly say anything about the two-dimensional world since we don't live in two dimensions, we can make as much theories based on theoretical knowledge.

What we can say though, is that from the observable knowledge that we have, we can deduce from the 3D movement of all the observable objects in the universe that they are expanding from one point, which we may not have found yet.

For two dimensional creatures, I'm sure they would've had their own completely correctly formulated theory that in theory would work, but there would dELtaluca in that universe who would say: "No, the universe isn't expanding from everywhere, a single point of the universe is the point it is expanding from. There is a centre but we can't observe it directly.


Let's say you're a three-dimensional creature living in the balloon, and you inflate the balloon, then the 'universe' is expanding, from a central point, in the 3d world of the balloon everything is moving away from everything else just like in our universe.

When the top 5 Tineye search results for this picture are websites with extremely obvious ties to religion and not one mention of NASA, it does very little to aid the credibility of this picture.

TL;DR Picture is fake.

Or familiar with theoretical science.

I very much liked dELtaluca's different theory, it's only flaw is that we can trace the movements of all objects in the observable universe to one point, the flaw in that is that we still haven't been able to do that.

What makes this whole thing interesting is the word "observable"

It is the center of a galaxy, and not the actual universe itself.

I guess the OP just doesn't know the difference between the two.

What else makes it interesting is the next thing:

Think about it.
If we were living on a for us unobservant flat surface seen from a higher dimension, this would mean that if we see a galaxy on the left side, we should be able to see it on the right side as well, UNLESS if space is expanding quicker than light can keep up, in that case, this would mean that a certain amount of the universe would be forever invisible to us, and that the more the universe expands, the more objects will fade from our vision until the whole universe becomes invisible to us...

Even in this scenario though, the universe does expand from one point, however, we may not be looking for the right point, but for a completely different point, from which you could practically reach every other point in the universe.

Think of it as a VERY quickly growing earth, as a man walks from A to B, he could possibly never reach it if earth expands it's surface faster than the man can walk, for him to reach that other point, he would have to dig himself into the ground, towards the center of the earth, and from the center he could move to his destination directly, unless this earth expands faster that way as well, in this case, our little dude will be doomed as soon as he enters the ground.

The fun thing about theoretical science is that it's like LEGO, you can do anything you want, there are no rules except that the bricks must fit and nothing must fall off on it's own.

I fucking love science.

Are you seriously asserting that there are no Christians on a site with millions of users?

Really? I'm a Christian and I never debate in Religion threads because of no matter who's in it, there always idiots shoving they're flawed arguments down people's throat. (Regardless of whether they're Religious or not.) How am I acting like a Goody-Two Shoes when I barely speak of my Religion at all? The few people on here who are familiar with me would probably be shocked to learn of what I just said.

See, look, a Christian. You're wrong escobar.
Theres plenty of Christians on this site, a lot of them just don't announce it or debate about it, or act like wack-jobs like you do.

Sounds like to me your siding with the non christians, when a galaxy clearly has a symbol of Jesus on it, and you come against it, you can fool the trolls on NG like MrEd, but you can'r fool God. You can't fool me either, your just a phony. I bet you don't even know one bible verse by memory, or does that not matter, shame on you.
