The Astounding Depth of Human Arrogance As Revealed In Belief Stricken Delusional Mythologies
Posted by pwl on January 15, 2010
The profound deep arrogance of man is revealed in the self imposed delusional mythological belief systems from the Bronze Ages. Many people, purportedly the vast majority of people on Earth, believe that the universe was created for man. How arrogant. How sad. The cartoon above says it well.
Let’s get it through our thick skulls. The universe wasn’t created for human beings. We simple evolved here fighting and clawing our way from sub-cellular life to multi-cellular all the way up to human being. To say that the universe was created for us is so insulting to our ancestors that it isn’t funny- it does them a deep disrespect for it says that their struggle in the continuous chain of life from them to us was unnecessary and make believe just to suit the whims of some arrogant God that want’s to toy with us for his/her/it’s own designs.
Anyone who truly gets the notion of freedom and independence must reject the notions of arrogance implied and supported by the profoundly horrific self conceited notion that the universe was created for us.
It is one thing to be humbled by Nature and to find our way though the darkness of space. It is quite another to attempt to rule the universe with the notion that it is ours to do with as we please. The universe simply is. We are here for a brief moment, each of us and our species. We can be gone in an instant. All it takes is one tiny asteroid. Blammo. No more Earth. Gone. No trace except for a few space probes, and even those will be destroyed when our star Sol dies.
To think that the universe was created for humans doesn’t take objective reality into account. To not take objective reality into account in your thinking means that you are disconnected from objective reality to the extent that your representation of objective reality is off base. The less your view of objective reality maps to observed and testable and verifiable aspects of Nature the more delusional and disconnected you are.
Space is lethal. It wasn’t designed for humans as proven by the fact that humans die with moments of being exposed to the vacuum and cold environment of space.
We only can exist in a very narrow sliver of the Earth Environment and Biosphere. Most places will kill us dead. Even then it takes advanced technologies to make life livable let alone comfortable in most places on Earth.
The slightest scratch can lead to death.
The environment is deadly. Earthquakes. Cold. Hot. Tornados. Hurricanes. Tsunamis. Floods. Snow. Animals. Rain. Insects. Disease. Viruses. Other humans.
The universe is a violently hostile place for life, and human life even more so. We are so fragile.
Clearly the universe isn’t user friendly. It’s deadly.
