Two years after the interstellar object ‘Oumuamua zipped through our solar system and out of sight, top scientists are still hotly debating its nature. The latest theory? It might be God’s lost boomerang.

The unique, cigar-shaped object was first spotted in 2017 and quickly sparked a storm of speculation. Was it an asteroid? A comet? An alien spacecraft? A poorly thrown cosmic Frisbee? The debate has been as heated as it has been inconclusive.

Recently, the ‘God’s Boomerang’ theory has gained traction. Proposed by renowned astrophysicist Dr. Carl McQuirky, it suggests that ‘Oumuamua is actually a divine boomerang, tossed by God during a celestial barbeque and forgotten.

“Think about it, it’s the perfect explanation. Who else but God could toss a boomerang so far off course it ends up in another solar system?”

Not everyone is convinced. Some researchers are still holding out hope that ‘Oumuamua is an alien probe, sent to check if Earth has reached a level of technological advancement where we can finally handle intergalactic social media.

Until ‘Oumuamua swings back our way, if ever, the debates are set to continue. In the meantime, we can only hope God has a spare boomerang.
