Unlike God, of course, who is so simple He just sprang into existence....

Oh dear, looks like it's fake news actually...how embarrassing :hide:

A reverse Google images search reveals that the photograph was created by artist Russell Kightley (www.scientific.pictures/about). He has shared the image on his website (here), Twitter page (here) and Instagram page (here).

In a recent blog post here , Kightley explains that his image of the animal cell has repeatedly gone viral due to misinformation about what it shows.

“The image was created 20 years ago for an educational poster for BioCam,” Kightley wrote in the post. “It took six weeks of full-time work to create using Painter (Fractal Design’s Painter as it was, now it’s managed by Corel).”

ETA: they should have put the word "photograph" in inverted commas. Still, a delightful piece of art nevertheless, and a call to fact check, and some comments on the silliness of theism, so not a wasted thread entirely, by any means. Thus spake KIR, OP.
