“I have always thought it curious how poorly humility is reconciled with the egocentric belief that the Universe has been created with you in mind and that its creator takes a constant interest in your sordid personal affairs.”

– Willem Etsenmaker

  1. Interesting that many traditional societies, although acknowledging the existence of a creator, generally thought him too preoccupied with other matters to be much bothered with the doings of humanity. He did take time out to ordain death to all living creatures however.

  2. Actually, that makes sense, Tish – on this tiny planet, you can see how quickly immortality could turn into a population problem.
