It’s hard to believe God created everything for us human beings, on an earth which is but a speck of dust in the universe.

The above sentence is what I heard from New York University Professor of Philosophy Tim Maudlin in the class: Science, Religion and the Origins of the Universe.

Maudlin explains that for thousands of years, we human beings believed we were the center of the universe. But, thinkers became more reasoned and with the invention of the telescope, new observations were taken into account for us to realize we are but a speck of dust in a board cosmos.

From 21st Century Science and Health:

“Quantum mechanics, gravity, and the cosmos teach grand lessons. The stars make night beautiful and the leaf turns naturally toward the light.

“Mind is perpetual motion. Its symbol is the sphere. The rotations and revolutions of the universe of Mind go on eternally. In the order of Science, in which Principle is above what it expresses, all is one grand agreement.”
