German astronomers have strengthened the case for the design of a spiral galaxy’s bulge mass (the nucleus of stars at the center) for the support of life. Their research shows a much tighter correlation than previous studies had shown between a galaxy’s bulge mass and the mass of its central black hole. Consequently, any galaxy with a large bulge mass assuredly will possess a black hole of such great mass as to guarantee the sterilization of that galaxy (no possibility for life). However, a small bulge mass means that the heavy elements necessary for life will not reach the right galactic location for life to exist. This discovery shows that the bulge mass must be just-right, as it is in the Milky Way, and thereby supports the case for supernatural cosmic creation.
