What is the place of man in the universe??


Question asked by: louie20

Asked on: 13 Mar 2010

For many people we are the pinnacle of creation, we are the end result of evolution so far and we are effectively masters of our domain.

For many others however, we are nothing special - a species that happens to be intelligent of sorts and lives on a planet orbiting some star in some galaxy in some ordinary part of the universe.

Until we know how many other intelligent species there are out there it is hard to tell how special we are, those of a religious nature who have some idea of a God or possibly being made in God's image, then the answer may be that we are a lot more special than that.
