The Universe and Man's (in)significance in it
    #4427115 - 07/20/05 06:17 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

It was once believed that earth stood at the center of the universe, that the sun, the planets, and the heavens moved around it, and that it was all created for mankind.  Then it was discovered that the Earth orbited the sun.  Our ideas were revised such that our solar system then stood at the center of the universe.  It was then discovered that Earth was closer to the edge of the known universe(the Milky Way) than it was to the galactic core.  Then, it was found that what we had thought to be the entirety of the universe was really one of trillions of galaxies within the universe.  Now, several scientists theorize that there are other parallel universes, and who knows how many of them may exist?  And yet so many people still believe that they as humans are special in God's eyes, and that God cares for man above all the rest of creation.

How quaint. :smirk:

indeed, this experience of the moment is beyond priceless.

ultimately, its the means that matter, as clearly there are no ends.

We're all just part of the same unending tapestry.  It keeps unraveling and unraveling...I always wonder how far it will go.  It boggles the mind.  Damn existence is interesting. 

Including the aliens.  :smile:
