Are we irrelevant in this universe?

Stand to Reason‘s Brett Kunkle answers the question, “Are we irrelevant in this universe?”  This question came to Brett with the underpinning that because of humanity’s “smallness” in relationship to the dark matter and dark energy present in the universe, we are insignificant, irrelevant!

Brett responds with an argument that size does not represent value.



Watching this video made me think about Dr. Seuss‘ Horton Hears a Who.  The message from Dr. Seuss is the same, “A person is a person no matter how small.”

Humanity’s value and worth comes from our Creator!  We were created in his image.

  1. Oh please – you really need to grow up and use your search engine to realize there is no guy with a white beard in the sky who laments when you masturbate as he’sconspiring to wake all the dead humans up in paradise heaven or hell.

How many discoveries of pre human fossils anthropologist archeologist and scientist do you have to ignore to believe these bronze age books? Why is it the smarter the world gets the less it believes in miracle workers and answered prayers? Why do you think God never healed an amputee?
