If he had not put us at the center of the universe, did that mean he did not value us as much as we had previously thought. This revelation of a heliocentric universe threw astronomers’ world out of the nice, orderly spheres of the Ptolemaic system, and into a random and chaotic existence, without as much clear proof of a divine plan....   [tags: evil, religion, intellectualism]
