The majestic spiral galaxy NGC 4414, imaged by the Hubble Space Telescope in 1995.

A galaxy is a massive ensemble of hundreds of millions of stars and planets, all interacting through the gravitational force, orbiting around a common center.[1] The universe contains hundreds of millions of galaxies. Some scholars theorize that the center of every galaxy lies a super massive black hole.

Young Earth Creationism View

Young earth creationist scientist assert that materialistic explanations of galaxy formation are unsupportable and counter evidence.[2] [3] [4] In 1988, fifty cosmologists attended a conference which focused on galaxy formation. After summarizing the observational data, two of the most respected scientists estimated the probability that any existing theory on galaxy formation is correct was about 1 out of 100. [5] In 1999, J. Bland-Hawthorn wrote in the science journal Nature the following:

In 1977, Stephen Weinberg observed that "the theory of the formation of galaxies is one of the great outstanding problems of astrophysics, a problem that today seems far from solution". Although the past two decades have seen considerable progress, many questions remain. [6]
