Well its hard when you combine mans hubris to the fact that we don't know of any other life forms.<quoted text>
Yeah, but how many people think something may be true is irrelevant to whether it is actually true. Maybe as humans we are all just inherently a little irrational and tend to see monsters in the dark where there aren't any. It's entirely possible that how this universe began is beyond our ability, even collectively, to grasp. I'm not saying we should not try our damnest to figure it out, I'm saying we as humans tend to come at things with a human POV, and that alone might hinder us. I mean, isn't it rather laughable and infantile to think that the universe revolves around us as a species?
But it would be a lot more arrogant if we knew and still thought that
But I think its not so much revolves around man but life in general
What else in the universe would be more important than life? Especially if a higher power took the time to make it and as far as we know, no other?
It's one of the rare times where I think its less hubris and more process of elimination. Not that by definition mankind or life on Earth must be so important (if there is life elsewhere). But if there isn't other than what created us, what else would logically be on top as far as importance
