unacceptable it may be but we do show promise as curious pioneers of our universe yet astronomy teaches us our insignificance in nature

as I said, Sagan is right, but we belive that we are a very important piece in the universe, so we cannot accept that our concerns are insignificant or petty, even if, deep inside, we admit that we are as the dust in the wind, compared with the universe.

It's tough to draw a comparison when we're compared to the vastness of the cosmos or microbial life. One extreme or the other. If and when we find a species "similar" to ourselves, i still think we'll be the laughing stock of the universe.

I, on the other hand, don't like to think of myself as anything related to nothing/worthless/unimportant

If the shoe fits then wear it. If you were looking for something inspirational you came to a demotivational website. I'm simply putting into perspective the transit of Venus between the earth and sun. This event is huge and reminds me of how small we are

It is the transit of Venus that is insignificant. It means absolutely nothing.

I like it. It reminds me of 72464 and that one is in the hall of fame. 5L

It is your comment that is insignificant. It means absolutely nothing.
