51. I do feel fortunate too. :(
I also see things like these and believe there are no gods.

However, then I think of what's "out there." Black holes, the big bang, what CAUSED the big bang, quantum physics, and I begin to realize that perhaps what we see and touch just isn't all there is. That there is something bigger than we have the capacity to imagine.
