If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

"It is modern science that teaches us humbleness and humility, not the Bronze Age mythologies and religions that put us on a throne where we don't belong."

It is good for us humans to realize that we are nothing more than a species among other species, living on an average planet in an insignificant solar system somewhere in the outskirts of a random galaxy in an immense universe that harbors at least some 200 billion other galaxies and quintillions of stars with quintillions of planets. While in our sheer arrogance we self-acclaim to be the most important thing on earth - and even of the whole universe, thinking that the earth is the centre of the cosmos, everything else orbiting it, like some fools even today think, being the 'crown of the creation' due to some self-appointed god who created us 'in his own image'.
It is modern science that teaches us humbleness and humility, not the Bronze Age mythologies and religions that put us on a throne where we don't belong.
The Earth is not our own, it is not our back-yard where we can do everything on our whim. The Earth can do without humans. But we humans cannot do without the Earth.
