9. True, in some ways, but I am not that hard on people
things have gotten really weird over the last five hundred years.

The earth is not flat (nor was it flat for navigators of the era, but)

It is not the center of the solar system... I mean poor Galileo paid for that one.

It is not at the center of our stellar arm... or the galaxy (we'd be in deep shit, black hole and all)

The galaxy is not at the center of it's group... and so it goes.

Now we learn that we might be part of many universes...

We are really becoming more and more insignificant in the grand scheme of things.

I mean Sol is one of 300,000 suns in the galaxy... okay it is a nice slow burning star, but you get the idea.

And how big the universe is... well it is really since Hubble, so we need to give people time to adjust to the idea... we are really that small of a speck in the grand scheme of things.
