Humans are important to the universe? I don't think so.

 A Facebook friend sent me this link. It goes well with Sagan's Pale Blue Dot speech as far as demonstrating our planet's size and place in the universe.



All this cares about humans? I don't think so.

of course it doesn't care

of course it doesn't care about humans, it doesn't have the capacity to care about anything. value is completely relative, it has nothing to do with how much space something occupies.

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."

Agree with both posts.

The universe created a caring elements, mainly cognative beings. It is only through the cognative elements that "Care" is created. The rest of the universe cant't care, it's not cognative. Care can only come about by "a Knowing".

The only possible thing the world needs saving from are those running it.
