Trope-a-Day: Insignificant Little Blue Planet

Insignificant Little Blue Planet: We already really handled this under Earth is the Center of the Universe, but I bring it up because of a discussion at TV Tropes of the problem, religiously speaking, of being a tiny, tiny, tiny piece of something incomprehensibly large with regard to theologies that are quite personal in the relationship between Man and Cosmos.

To which I would like to note that the response of the rather impersonal, iconic, primary eldraeic religion to discovering Space was, approximately, “All of this needs fixing? Bugger me, that’s going to take a while.”
