As the infant is said to feel it is the centre of of its universe, so we were once sure, not just of our central position, but of that the universe was made for us. This old, comfortable conceit, this safe view of the world has been crumbling for five centuries. The more we understood of how the world is put togather, the less we needed to invoke of God or gods, and the more remote in time time and causality any divine intervention had to be. The cost of coming age is giving up the security blanket.

Adolescence is a roller coaster ride.

– Carl Sagan
