Pale Blue Dot astronomers:[edit]

Although Ptolemy thought the Sun revolved around the Earth, he also concluded that the Earth should be treated as a mathematical point in the Unverse. Now, since a mathematical point is infinitely smaller than a Pale Blue Dot, do we conclude that Ptolemy must be humbler and wiser than modern astronomers? Well, maybe I'm being nasty and objective, when I should be misty-eyed and subjective. I might be a candidate for sensitivity training.

Unlike Pale-Blue-Dot astronomers, I don't try to feel the pain of the robbed (nor do I try to feel the pleasure of the robbers). To pretend to know the pain of others is to belittle the pain of others. [1]

From a comfortable armchair or a speaker's podium, all human trials (pains, pleasures, joys, loves, etc.) can only be reduced to a Pale Blue Dot by exceptional Pride - not by insightful thinking. Trying to synthesize people with their planet is called Pantheism - not astronomy. --FrankHatch (talk) 02:17, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
