I always find it amusing that the thinking of the "scientific" community that led to Giordano Bruno getting burned at the stake for claiming (gasp) the Earth is not the center of the Universe is only a few hundred years old, and has the audacity to believe that they now have it all figured out, every question satisfactorily answered.

This linear mode of thought that "newer = more advanced" is ludicrous. They relegate everything in the past to the derrogatory connotation of "primitive". They believe modern man is above, and ancient man is below.

The reason science moved the Earth out of the center of the universe was to make room for the most glorified object there is: man's ego.
