What a silly piece of homocentricity. No doubt the tyrannosaurus rex
thought all the other dinosaurs were put there as food for it, as well.
And I guess the vast expanses of space outside our own solar system
were put there to give humans something nice to look at at night, as well?
I suspect the problem is not so much people not having read the Bible
(although I'm sure many of us haven't), but people not believing
self-important nonsense like that.
