A spiral galaxy is evidence of a young universe...

Mr. Schlafly, I suggest you try this simple home experiment: take a towel and spread it out on the floor. Now take a fork. Stick the fork prongs-down in the middle of the towel. Twist the fork. Observe.--CamilleT 23:05, 23 May 2011 (EDT)

You misspelled my name too.--Andy Schlafly 23:37, 23 May 2011 (EDT)
I'm terribly sorry, sir. But as you can see, it is perfectly natural that the arms should spin in the opposite direction of the center.--CamilleT 23:48, 23 May 2011 (EDT)
But not in the direction opposite to the wake of the spin of the center, as the headline has correctly stated.--Andy Schlafly 00:07, 24 May 2011 (EDT)

A few quibbles

"A spiral galaxy is evidence of a young universe, and a theory of dark matter has been proposed to try to reconcile its spiral pattern with belief in an old universe. Some spiral galaxies have arms that spin in a direction opposite to the wake of the inner spin, further defying atheistic theories."

A spiral galaxy would require millions of stars that formed over incredibly long periods of time. Also, fork model provided above. I'd edit the actual page, but I'll wait for this to be off the front to risk the edit being lost. BFKelleher 18:10, 25 May 2011 (EDT)

What's your reason for saying it must have been "formed over incredibly long periods of time"? The evidence provided by the counter-rotation suggests to me the opposite: the time period much have been short, or else the rotation would follow the wake of the inner spin.--Andy Schlafly 23:13, 25 May 2011 (EDT)
