I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds

En route to looking up something else, I happened across a creationist website, which included this picture of Eta Carinae. Eta Carinae is a nearby gigantic, unstable star, which may blow itself apart at any time. It is indeed beautiful, but I wonder if the creationist would still consider it so reverentially if he knew that one day it could irradiate Earth, perhaps lethally.
