Seyfert Galaxies

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

A new galaxy survey affirms RTB’s biblical cosmic creation model. Our Milky Way Galaxy is well protected for life because it lacks inhospitable neighbors. The Southern Sky Redshift Survey reveals that Seyfert galaxies, that is, galaxies with active nuclei (pouring out deadly radiation) are more abundant than previously recognized. They account for 3% of all galaxies. The fact that no Seyfert galaxy is in the vicinity of our galaxy indicates that the geographical placement of our galaxy seems no accident of evolution.
