If physics is right, physics is wrong?

From New Scientist:

The ballistics of galactic shrapnel show that the Milky Way has already crashed into its giant neighbour, Andromeda – but if that’s right, physics is wrong

Well, if we don’t exist anymore, it doesn’t matter much if physics is wrong, but …

A monstrous Milkomeda galaxy?

It’s a well-established picture of our galaxy’s cataclysmic future. More controversially, it might also be a vision of its past. More.

The nice thing about New Scientist is that it makes the religious fantasies of some of my neighbours seem normal.

What a peculiar post. A reasonable estimate of average star separation in the Milky Way is somewhere in the range of 4 to 6.5 light years. The diameter of our star is about 10^-7 light years. If the two galaxies intersect, the interaction will be a slow gravitational dance with precious little "crashing" or "cataclysms" or "stuff flying around". Mostly just the inexorable working out of the 2LoT. timothya
From the bible it can be gleaned there was a past cosmic explosion. the source for the impacts on earth, moon, other planets and why so much stuff flying around. Soon after the fall this happened. Looking at evidence of leftovers really tells very little. Robert Byers
