"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.
